Winter and 100th Day

This week we celebrated the 100th day of school!!  Everyone dressed as if they were 100 years old.  It was a fun day and we had a great time doing many activities counting to 100.

Watch the video to see students share what they have enjoyed most about the first 100 days of school.

Check out Deterrio's 100 year old hair!

Old Kindergarten teachers!

As a grade, each student brought in one canned food.  We collected 100 cans and counted to 100 along the way.  We donated the cans to a local food bank.

100 day snack, 100 day cookie cake and 100 calorie snacks 

Counting groups of 10 to 100

Making 100 hats

Counting by 5's to 100

Students brought items from home in groups of 100

Great books about the fun number 100!

We also learned the letter Yy this week.  Students are gluing yarn on Y.

The thematic unit this week was winter.  Everyone loved learning about winter, here students made snowflakes.

We even made our own snow!  (Grated soap)  And we molded the snow into snowballs to create a snowman.

We read many great books about winter, this may be one of our favorite seasons!

Everyone especially enjoyed learning about penguins.  They are very "cool" birds! 

We loved the book "Three Cheers for Tacky."  They wrote about Tacky in their journals. 

Making snowmen 

We read a book about children who danced a "snow danced" and made it snow.  We danced our own snow dance and like magic had yummy snowballs to eat!

Making snowballs (rice krispy treats molded into balls and covered in powdered sugar)

The San Diego Zoo website had many great interactive games for students.  It also had a live webcam of the polar bear exhibit.  We loved this website!
