### 100 Days of School ! February 8, 2019

100 Days Brighter

Kindergarteners were delighted to celebrate the100th day of School this week! Each child collected 100 items and displayed it in our 100 Museum! In math, they were busy collecting data on which projects were the tallest, smallest, and most unusual. They also participated in a parade around the school, did 100 exercises, and wrote about being 100 years old. Students had a blast investigating multiple ways to count, sort, and gain number sense of 100.

Math Fun

This week in math we have been working with number bonds. Number bonds help students see that numbers can be “broken” into pieces to make computation easier. Our Kindergarten mathematicians used their fingers and linking cube sticks to break apart numbers up to five. Our Kindergartners used story situations with drawings for numeric bonds and they were able to draw their very own number bonds. Ask your Kindergartner to show you how they can break apart numbers!

Fun with our 1st Grade Buddies

This week our Kindergarten class got to spend some quality time with our First Grade buddies. Our Kindergarten class was able to have lunch buddies with them, which was a blast. First Grade then joined us during Movement. We had a nice and exciting game of sharks and minnows, which happens to be an all time favorite of ours. First Grade also came and read several books from our reading bags with us. We had so much fun with our buddies this week!
