“Mr. B,” the Beekeeper (also known as Mr. Bingham, School Counselor) dazzled Larsen’s Kindergarteners by showing them how bees make honey, giving out tastes of honey from his own hives and showing the fancy clothes beekeepers wear.  These youngsters also learned about the different kinds of Bees — workers, queens, drones, guards, and fanners.

The 4-H Afterschool Theater class performed a musical melodramatic murder mystery. They had a cast of all girls. They enjoyed learning about melodramas. The fun part about this play was the surprise ending. Poor Linda is dead, no one could have survived being mauled the way she was. But who did it? Was it the butler, the kitchen staff, Mary's cousin? Mary's Mom gets to the bottom of the mystery. The chef never liked Linda because she didn't do her job. The butler reveals it all....Linda was not a milk cow.  She was a beef cow and she made a great dinner.

Larsen Kindergarten Businesses

Kindergarteners at Larsen Elementary had an opportunity
to learn how to serve customers, fill orders, make
breakfast items or ice cream delights and give change in
their classroom businesses.  Mrs. Hyer’s Kindergarten
class had a Breakfast Business this year, serving apple
and orange juice and waffles with syrup, jam or whip
cream.  Mrs. Eckhardt’s class had an Ice Cream Shop
serving rootbeer floats, and ice cream with your choice of
chocolate or vanilla and toppings ranging from chocolate
syrup to nuts.  The kindergarten students (and other special
customers) took turns serving and patronizing each other’s
businesses.

Kindergarten Egg Drop at Larsen Elementary

Cracked? The kindergarten classes at Larsen Elementary School tried everything they could think of to keep Humpty Dumpty from cracking. Students hard boiled an egg and then thought of ways to keep it safe from their custodian Mr. Mecham as he threw them off the top of the school building.
