"Fox in Socks"

Look at us in our mismatched socks! So many different colors, patterns and stripes! We had a lot of fun at our Morning Meeting comparing our socks and playing the one potato game. It was fun not having our shoes on for our meeting this morning! Funny socks day was a success and we all enjoyed the tongue twisting verses of Dr. Seuss when we read his book "Fox in Socks".  

Tomorrow is Wacky Wednesday!
Let’s get silly!  
Wear your clothes backwards, inside out, or mismatched.

Preparing for the 100th day!

Here are some pictures of us preparing for our 100th day. We worked hard creating our 100 day mats and our 100 bead necklaces.

Yea for the 100th Day!

Today we celebrated our 100th day of kindergarten! We started off our day coloring in 100 things on the number 100. We wore our 100 day hats, 100 bead necklaces and revisited our 100 mats. We had 3 students make it into the 100% club for ST Math. We looked at everyone's 100 collections then we talked about what 100 things we would like to do at our morning meeting.  We counted to 100 when we made our 100 fingerprints. It was a busy day! Tomorrow we will complete our 100 activities by scribbling for 100 seconds and writing about our 100th day!

We also started our week long unit on Dr. Seuss. Today we wore our pajamas to school and read the Sleep Book. Tomorrow we will read Fox in Sox. Students are invited to wear mismatched socks to school.

ST Math Update

Our class has completed 60% of ST Math! Way to go Room 101! Some of our students have made it to 100%! Congratulations to Evan, Owen C., Owen M. and Sophia. Some of our students need to focus a bit more on ST Math to ensure that all students will be at 100% by the end of the school year. 

Art Class with Miss Fallon

Before vacation we had a special Art class with Pine Glen's Art Teacher Miss Fallon. We went down to her art room to create a flower for the Pine Glen Square One Art Fundraiser. Miss Fallon has the wonderful ability to have the students strive to be the best artist they can be! Our students LOVED their art class with Miss Fallon and the students are hoping to go back to another art class before next year. Please keep an eye out for this special art work to come home!

Happy Valentine's Day!

The students in Room 101 had a wonderful day! So many smiles and kind words were exchanged. The students did a terrific job creating their Special Valentines. We were impressed that they were all able to keep the secret for over a month! We had many creative Valentine's this year from dream catchers, t-shirts, homemade crayons, wall hanging, bird house, homemade book and photo puzzle.  Nice work Room 101! All the students in Room 101 felt special today!

After we exchanged our Special Valentine's we went to the computer lab and Mr. Donoff had a couple Valentine activities for the students to do on the chrome books. We took a minute to take a class photo. The students looked so beautiful and handsome all dressed up for our special day!

After our time in the lab we went back to our classroom for our Victorian Luncheon.  We had a delicious luncheon with the ambiance of candlelight!  Students practiced appropriate dining conversation and demonstrated terrific table manners! Thank you to the Pine Glen kitchen staff. Our luncheon was a success thanks to Carol and Kathy for helping to make this day possible for us!

After our luncheon the students had time to open their class Valentine's. The students enjoyed reading all the notes and cards they received from their classmates.

We ended our day with a journal entry about our day for each students' memory books and the students worked on ST Math. It was a busy day. I think we will all be tired tomorrow!
