In Matthew 19:14, Jesus says, “Let the little children come to me, do not hinder them for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Children in Kindergarten are inquisitive, curious and active. Here at Trinity we encourage children to explore through hands-on learning and technology. We use a variety of teaching methods to reach each individual child. Children learn to go and “Share Christ’s Story with Love” through several classroom service projects.
Special accomplishments for the students include learning to read, counting to 100, and seeing caterpillars change into butterflies. The kindergartners have an activity each month with their fifth grade prayer partners. This is the year where they build many lasting friendships and lead a chapel service for the first time. The children even put on an end-of-the-year program for their families. During this event students are given personal memory books containing their own written work along with photos from special class events.
The Apple Orchard and Detroit Zoo are two of our favorite field trips. We have several guest speakers that come into the classroom including a fireman, a nurse from a local hospital and a dental hygienist. Parents and other community members also volunteer in our classroom to read during the month of March for National Reading Month.
