Welcome to Kindergarten!
HOLY CROSS LUTHERAN SCHOOL MISSION STATEMENT:
Helping Children Grow in Faith, Knowledge and Service
2016-2017 SCHOOL YEAR THEME:
Life in Jesus bears the fruit of the Spirit.
BASED ON GOD'S WORD FROM GALATIANS 5:22-23:
"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law."
A WORD FROM MRS. JAHNKE:
If you are looking for a Christian Kindergarten for your child, Holy Cross is an excellent choice. At Holy Cross, the children grow spiritually, physically and intellectually in a very loving and accepting environment and God's Word is shared with them daily. In all that we do, we are reminded of the love, forgiveness and constant presence of the Triune God.
We are learning many high frequency words from the Dolch sight word list.
Our current word wall includes:
and the like go to my can see is we play up red orange green yellow red
We have two sheets of homework this week. One practices reading sight words and the other practices counting and recognizing numbers from ten to twenty.

Show and Tell
Show and Tell will begin during the Second Quarter. A theme will be given to the students along with a Show and Tell bag. When the Show and Tell bag comes home, the student may bring an item and be prepared to talk about it. The other students try to guess what the object is by asking questions which are listed below.
We will ask questions of the student & feel the item before looking in the bag. The questions always follow this format:
What group is it from? (toys, animals, tools...)
What does it do or what do you do with it?
What does it look like? (color/shape...)
What is it made of?
Does it have parts?
Where did it come from?
