It's kindness week and TK is participating in The Great Kindness Challenge. TK showed kindness this week by writing kindness notes to give to friends, making kindness necklaces, giving high five to friends, singing songs and hearing stories about kindness. We even had a kind older brother come read at choice time!
This week we also learned about penguins!
We can't wait for next week to celebrate the 100th Day of School!

What better way to return from celebrating the holidays than to celebrate some more! On our first day back made countdown balls and had our our countdown for 2018. We set a class goal to line up quickly and quietly as well as individual goals that ranged from painting and playing soccer or T-Ball to practicing being a cat and building a boxing robot. TK is the best!
There were a couple rainy days when we came back too. That's great because we love rainy day recess! It means special rainy day toys and games!
