A Glimpse Inside Kindergarten

Here’s a glimpse inside the Kindergarten Class of Mrs. Harbeck. Sure sounds like fun, thanks Mrs. Harbeck for sharing with us all!

Did you know Parkview offers multiple classes of all day Kindergarten in Yorkville? For more information, please note the link at the end of this post.

Pumpkins, pumpkins…EVERYWHERE! This past week, Mrs. Harbeck’s Kindergarten Class has looked like a pumpkin patch. We completed many fun pumpkin activities and read the book, Pumpkin Pumpkin by Jeanne Titherington. It’s a story about a boy named Jamie who plants pumpkin seeds in the spring. Along with Jamie, we learned the stages of the pumpkin cycle as we watched his pumpkin seeds grow. After numerous discussions revolving around the life cycle of pumpkins, I began to wonder if we, as Christians, have our own “spiritual life cycle”?! Thankfully when we have a heart that yearns to be close to God, we go through many stages of growth and maturity. Praise the LORD!

2 Peter 3:18. But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen.

In math this week, Mrs. Harbeck’s Kindergarten Class has been learning about addition! We have been using a lot of hands on activities to help us understand this concept. With all of the counting and adding going on in the classroom, the song Count Your Blessings came to mind. It’s a wonderful song to reflect upon. Numbers aren’t the only things we should be counting!

Count Your Blessings

When upon life’s billows you are tempest tossed,
When you are discouraged thinking all is lost,
Count your many blessings, name them one by one,
And it will surprise you what the Lord hath done.

Are you ever burdened with a load of care?
Does the cross seem heavy you are called to bear?
Count your many blessings, every doubt will fly,
And you will be singing as the days go by.

So, amid the conflicts, whether great or small,
Do not be discouraged, God is over all,
Count your many blessings, angels will attend,
Help and comfort give you to your journey’s end.

Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your blessings, see what God hath done,
Count your blessings, name them one by one,
Count your many blessings, see what God hath done.
