While there they listened to a story read to them by their teacher, Mrs Francis Bunting. They are pictured above. j . Kindergarten has become an important part in the development of a youngster. During a school day, he starts off by greeting the teacher. This makes him more at ease and at home. A work period follows whereby the youngster decides for himself what he "would like to do whether it's pasting, coloring, cutting or such. But once he starts this task he is taught to complete it before going on to something different. Then there is outdQpr play in which super- Vised games are played. This fresh air and sunshine give the child relaxation. ' With the teacher at the helm, the youngsters learn speech as a group. This' is an important part of kindergarten. They learn ments, and Juanita and Marlene are student nurses. This group was joined on Thanksgiving day by Mr and Mrs Edmond Lester ttegfstored Jeeoefer ~ American Gem Society ALGONA'JOWA and Sandy of Blue Earth and Mr and Mrs Dwayne Lester and boys. Approximately 2000 Aunt Jemina pancakes were served at the Ukena Co. Hardware store! Nov. 20. The hot cakes were served with Qermania Creamery Co. butter and syurp, and hot coffee.

There's a record machine- Which they use a lot. • . f ' Something new which has just been added to the classroom is a stove with all the pots and. pans. It's built to their size. Surprisingly enough the boys, says Mrs Bunting, are just as interested in playing with it as the girls. When it first arrived, one little youngster piped up with, "Why didn't you get the 'ice box, too?" The youngsters have visited the greenhouse, too, in addition to the ; library. This -was part of their science work in that -they learned the signs of fall as they walked to the greenhouse; -at the greenhouse they learned the various kinds of flowers and how they are grown under the big windows. Following the visit there, one youngster went home and told his mother all about the trip and added, "but the house wasn't painted green!" There is 'still a trip to the grocery store, the post office and the farm before the school year ends next spring. Aims of the kindergarten are to develop the emotional, physical, social and mental powers of the child; to start the child toward a deeper understanding of the world in whic,h he lives; to. teach him appreciation of other people; to stimulate a healthy desire" to learn; to give the child rich and varied experiences; to promote a desire to read; to increase the child's ability to express his ideas clearly; and to prepare the child for more formal work in first grade. The teacher and the pupils have quite a time together ,the first year, but it's twice as easy for the teacher and twice as helpful to the pupil'if the mothers lend their assistance.
