ell, friends ::: Kalona Elementary kindergartners wave good-bye to their new-found " friends from Wellman Elementary after the two groups spent an afternoon ~, together at Kalona Elementary. by Monica Miller As the end of the school year " approaches, kindergartners boast of newly-learned skills internalized through the first year of school. Ask a kindergartner what he has learned this year and be prepared to listen to him count to 100, recite the ABCs with accompanying rhyme or sing a dinosaur song. Students quick to mention their i new-found reading ability may not even be cognizant that a different i type of learning has also been internalized throughout the year. Skills for Growing, part of the Lions-Quest curriculum, exposed students to life skills such as sharing, extending friendship and providing service for others. Lions-Quest defines service learning as "a way to connect daily lessons with the real world of children and providing opportunities for many different kinds of social and intellectual development." Classroom teachers are encouraged to help students at all grade levels design and implement some type of ervice project. Kindergarten teachers Pat "Anderson, Kalona Elementary and Susan Lehman, Weilman Elementary developed service projects appropriate for kindergartner involvement including removing litter from the school yard and designing a bulletin board for Pleasantview Nursing Home. Desiring to make her students aware they are part of a larger caring community, Anderson and her Section 2 kindergartners sent a letter to Wellman kindergartners reporting on their project. "We used a whole sheet of paper to send the letter and there was room at the bottom so I suggested we 'invite the Wellman kindergartners to come visit us some time," said Anderson. She told the students they should have Wellman's teacher ; Call their teacher to arrange the visit. Arrangements were made for the Welhnan kindergartners to spend part of an afternoon in Kalona visiting their new-found friends. Students at Kalona made a flower to :present to each Weliman kindergartner and the Wellman children each made a dinosaur :picture for their friends in Kalona. i; Both groups worked together on a ervice project tbr the district.
