We celebrated our 100th Day of Kindergarten with lots of activities…doing 100 exercises, building 100 in different ways, making 100th day hats, sharing our 100 items for Show and Tell, drawing what we will look like when we are 100 years old, writing a class book about spending $100, and reading 100 books! It only took us 14 minutes to read all 100 books. As you can tell from the photo, they were VERY excited!
Mrs. Town visited our classroom and read a wonderful story, Kindness is Cooler. We are working on being kind to others in our classroom and including everyone.. This Friday is a great opportunity for your whole family to practice acts of kindness together at our Family Fun Night, from 6:00 to 7:30!
We have continued to study Eric Carle and his wonderful writing and illustrations. We decided to recreate his book, The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse. We loved the message of this book...that artists can create WHATEVER they want! We planned what crazy animals we would make, painted paper just like Eric Carle, created tracers to make our animals, cut out the shapes from our painted paper, and put the animals together to create the book. Look for this fantastic book at conferences...we will have it displayed!
