Cans for Castles in Kindergarten
For the recent AE Day, students in Mrs. Davis’s Kindergarten class have been bringing in cans and boxes of food to donate and doing chores at home to earn these items as well. Last Friday, James and Linda Mack with Impact Church International in Concord came to collect the food to be distributed from their food kitchen The Manna House. Each weekend they serve sixty-five to ninety men, women, and children a hot meal, then send them off with a bag of grocery items to help offset their food costs during the week. To enhance their study of fairytales, students used the items to build castles and other structures as teams. The picture is of Mr. and Mrs. Mack with some of their creations.
One of the new full-day kindergarten afternoon units focuses on transportation, so children in Mrs. Ridenhour’s Kindergarten class were able to select a type of vehicle they wanted to decorate (car, boat, plane, dump truck, etc.). They were given various materials and allowed to decorate their vehicle however they wanted. Students then took their vehicles on a parade around school. In addition, a state trooper and and air traffic controller came speak to the kids about transportation.
