Children Share Sign Language and Learning and Love
With high expectations, we reach for the stars with the lives of our children.
The Kinder Stars classroom is set up for the last performance and party of the year.
The Kinder Stars are in their places and waiting to shine for their proud parents.
Performances Let Children Shine in the Eyes of Their Parents
Parents watch their Kinders sing and sign the ABC Sign Language and Phonics song, by Nellie Edge. Fifth grade reading buddies hold the language chart.
Children sing and sign spelling songs: M-O-M spells Mom… D-A-D spells Dad, and L-O-V-E spells Love…and continue with “Love is something if you give it away...” (Magic Penny)
Then the children reveal their heart necklaces. (hidden underneath their shirts so no one can see them)… “Now,” says teacher Celeste Starr, “We better go give our love away to someone special.
Each child goes into the audience to give their love—in the form of a heart necklace—away. “My mom hugged me when I gave my love necklace to her,” exclaimed this happy boy.
After the Song and ASL Performance, Each Child Becomes a Shooting Star
The families form a human tunnel while classical music is playing. As their name is called out, each child becomes a shooting star as they run through the tunnel to first grade!
Everyone cheers and smiles and celebrates! “Wow— I’m a star!”
Then families come into the classroom to continue the celebration of learning and children proudly share their art portfolios.
Happy family memories are built around school learning celebrations.
It's time for one last picture with our teacher, Celeste Starr. Children were heard saying, “This was the best party ever!”
