100 Days of School!

On Monday, Kindergarten students will be celebrating 100 days of school. We are planning a day of counting to 100!
Parents will be sending in a small snack to add to our 100's day snack mix and each child will have a chance to enjoy a great mix!

100 fruit loops will adorn our necks after we count the cereal into 10 piles of 10!

Fabulous crowns will adorn our heads and we will be writing about 100 things we would eat!

Stay tuned for pictures of our fun celebration!

Ms. Rauenbuehler has joined our class and is slowing taking over teaching periods in our day! She will be here through March 2 and so you will be able to meet her at conferences in Feb.

Just a few important reminders:
Are you putting your kids to bed so they get enough sleep?
Do you ask your child how many cubes they kept and what happens if they tell you they lost a cube?
These are the dreary days of winter and our behavior has been showing through. Talking to your child after school will also help them learn to make good choices at school!
Please contact us if you have any questions!

Happy Friday!

Shapes in Action

This week in our classroom we worked on reviewing shapes and learning new ways to use them. The kids brainstormed different ways we can create shapes and then tried out several ways.
We used wiki sticks, paper and pencil, scissors, hands and our bodies. Our plans were put on paper and then we tried them out!

No School Monday Jan. 16th, I will be finishing up report cards, look for them to come home at the end of the week! I am very proud of the kids this quarter! We have made big gains!

Please keep checking your child's orange folder, poetry homework will be coming weekly as well as the School-Home link!

Ms. Rauenbuehler has enjoyed her first week here and looks forward to taking over a few more things next week! We are so excited to have a new face in our room!
Have a great weekend!
