On December 5th, the kindergarten classes said good-bye to KinderRoo, the kangeroo puppet who brought them each letter of the alphabet over the first few months of school. Each time KinderRoo brought a letter, she made all kinds of mischief using items that began with that letter. The kindergarteners loved the crazy things she did! Jayana, Sabrina, and Kiley’s favorite letter was K because KinderRoo flew a kite! Myliegh’s favorite letter was P because KinderRoo threw toy planes all over the place!! Makala and Austin’s favorite letter was M because KinderRoo made a big macaroni mess!! Kiera, Reed, and Aiyana’s favorite letter was B because KinderRoo threw books all over the place and she rode a bicycle, with her helmet of course!!! Halley’s favorite letter was H because KinderRoo had a funny hairdo while riding a horse! Cadance’s favorite letter was C because KinderRoo brought cookies…which the kindergarteners got to eat! Liam’s favorite letter was L because KInderRoo brought candy to school!! What kind of candy?? LOLLIPOPS!!! The kindergarten classes had lots of fun!
With all the letters introduced, however, KinderRoo needed to move on to another school where new children need to learn their letters. On the morning of December 5th, KinderRoo’s bags were packed, and Mrs. Durand and Mr. Nemlich took her and her companions Vowel Owl and Alphy to the airport where they were planning to catch a plane to Arkansas. Maisie said, I am sad because I will miss KinderRoo and her friends.” Dave said, “I have mixed feelings. I am happy that KinderRoo gets to go to another school, and I am happy that KinderRoo taught our kids the alphabet.”
The kindergarteners hope to hear from KinderRoo in her new school, and they plan to write notes to KinderRoo to show her how well they are using those letters she taught them!
