Rosemary Behounek said she thinks she will paint in kindergarten. She drew a picture of herself painting a picture in class.

COLUMBIA — Future kindergartners got a taste of elementary school Wednesday afternoon at Columbia Public Schools' 2012 kindergarten registration. The event gave students and their parents and guardians a chance to meet kindergarten teachers and see the classrooms. 

While the children waited in the registration line with their parents, the Missourian asked 10 future kindergartners at Mill Creek Elementary School to draw what they thought they would be doing in kindergarten. The most popular answer was art, but children also said they wanted to make new friends and learn about numbers and dinosaurs.
