Love the Bus
It has often been said that a picture is worth a thousand words. When Mrs. Tuttle’s and Mrs. Kiker’s kindergarten class wanted to tell the bus drivers how much they love them they decided to show it in a picture. The class of sixteen students at Sardis Elementary worked on a large scale bus filled with happy children. The project began last Tuesday.
First the class carefully blended that distinct color by finger painting with orange and yellow. The whole class gathered around three tables, pushed up their sleeves and put their hands to work. After the paint dried, Mrs. Tuttle cut out a large outline of a bus. Then she added the blue windows. The next morning the students drew pictures of themselves riding the bus. After they cut out their drawings, Mrs. Kiker helped them add the children in the windows. She also helped them add the wheels, lights, and a stop sign that they had constructed from paper. Later that afternoon the trim work was added. Finally, on Thursday the class added the letters to the side and wrote a thank you card. It read:
Dear Bus Drivers,
Thank you for bringing our friends to school every day. Without them learning just would not be much fun.
Mrs. Tuttle’s and Mrs. Kiker’s Kindergarten
All of the students signed their names to the card.
