101 Days of School


On Friday, February 8, we celebrated the 101st day of school.  The children seemed to enjoy the idea of adding 'one' to their fond memories of the 100th day of school celebration in kindergarten.  We made Dalmatian hats, we watched 101 Dalmatians during lunch, and we even did a math project with a dalmatian theme!

In case you were wondering about the big dalmatian your child brought home, the assignment was to give the dalmatian puppy 101 spots - ten groups of ten plus one more.  This aligns with our math standard 1.1b:  "The student will group a collection of up to 100 objects into tens and ones..."  We are developing our understanding of place value by working with groups of tens, adding ten to a given number, and sorting numbers from least to greatest.  

In preparation for Valentine's Day, I have selected some of my favorite books about friendship and caring to read this week.  Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch, oh, and Roses Are Pink, Your Feet Really Stink are both personal favorites!  As a reminder, we will have a Valentine's Day party on Thursday, February 14 from 1:00 - 2:00 pm.  Please see last week's post Many thanks to our room parents for organizing the party!   

What is your favorite childhood Valentine's tradition?
