Kindergarten Takes On A ew Routine
Because of the large class size, the Kindergarten
class was divided into two sections. The groups
attended class all day every other day. The two
sections were seventeen and fourteen in number.
Mrs. Jobman taught all year long, rather than just
the last semester. So, there was something new for
her too this year. Every child in Kindergarten
class was very busy this year. In this first year of
school there were many things to learn. The class
completed Getting Ready To Read, the first pre-
reading skills book. The science and social studies
activities helped the students understand the
world around them. In math, they learned about
shapes, numbers, and counting objects in a set. All
of the students are eager to start first grade.
