February Holidays and the Dentist

We celebrated the 100th day by making crowns and we also made big heart people for Valentines Day!

Before the Mid Winter break, we discussed many different holidays and worked on many things in the classroom. Students continued to work on oral storytelling and also continued to work on reading and math. We learned about different holidays and celebrated all we have been doing to honor the 100th day of school.

Students also were able to watch a show for the Chinese New Year. They observed and watched the dragon dance.

For the 100th day of school I asked students to write about what they would buy if they had 100 dollars. We made a circle map first and then  we created a c
lass book.
