KINDERGARTEN NEWS

I hope everyone enjoyed their week off.   Before the break the children celebrated their 100th day of school- thank you to the parents who came to help with the centers.  The children colored a 100 mystery picture, did a 100 exercise activity, built with 100 cups, created pictures using the numbers 1-0-0 and dabbed 100 dots.  In the classroom the children also made a 100 beaded necklace, found the numbers 1-100 around the classroom then put them back in number order to make a 100 chart, made a 100 days smarter crown, listened to 100 day stories and 100 day music and movement activities!

Valentine’s day was also celebrated before the break.  The children handed out their Valentine’s and worked on a couple of crafts.  Thank you to the parents who sent in the Valentine snack and drinks.
