Kindergarten

Kindergarten had a blast celebrating the 100th day of school Thursday, February 18. They had a lot of fun doing 100 exercises and counting to 100 and walking 100 steps from our classroom door.  Licking lollipops 100 times was by far one of the favorites. They are also working hard on mastering completing a 100’s number chart correctly. We had a fabulous time!
