Kindergarten students look forward to learning, fun in egg hunting

The Kindergarten team at Christian Elementary School turned an annual event into an exchange lesson when the kids were having fun.

Every year the team organizes an Easter egg hunt. This year, parents and family members donated more than 1,200 candy seeds to kindergartens.

Hunting allows children to practice counting one-on-one with correspondence.

It also gives them a fair (or equal) sharing experience, said director Stacey Mooney. This year the children started planting grass in buckets that had been purchased for them weeks before the hunt began.

Children were involved in all aspects of the planting process. Watching the grass grow over the course of a few weeks helped to anticipate the expectations of the big hunt that took place on Friday.

Family members were called in to help the youngest Passers-by passers-by count the eggs found. Each child could collect only 21 eggs.

With a little help from the adults, each child collected an equal amount of eggs and the children learned about fair distribution.
