Can you believe it’s been 100 days (now 107) of Kindergarten?! We spent the day celebrating and learning about ‘100’ in a variety of ways. We started by getting prepared the day before, during Maker Monday. We morphed ourselves into the future to be ‘100 years old’ and we talked about what we would be doing when we were 100 years old!
Then, on the actual 100th day, the real fun began! We started by making “100th Day” crowns and necklaces. We counted by 5’s and 10’s to arrive at 100. We also enjoyed a ‘100 Hershey’s Kisses Hunt’ where we had to find 100 hidden Hershey’s Kisses in the courtyard! We ended our day by making a gumball machine filled with 100 gumballs. Don’t worry, we read several ‘100th Day’ stories throughout the day too 🙂 We even did a backwards count to see how many days are left this school year! We get to cut off a paper chain every day for the countdown.
Jewish Studies: Thank you so much for coming to our Kindergarten Shabbat! Enjoy the videos below. We are proud of our munchkins 🙂
We have started learning about the story of Purim! We have made projects, learned the new vocabulary associated with the holiday, and even learned new Israeli songs. We got to make our own megillah, bake hamantaschen, and even act out the story of Purim in our classrooms with costumes. We continue to practice and review our usual curriculum as we expand our knowledge every day!
