Mrs. Glidden’s class visited Bayshore’s 100th day hospital. We helped make patients well by using our first grade skills and being great readers and mathematicians. Students read patient files and answered questions, reviewed place value xrays, sorted place value band aids into <,>,=, completed contraction surgeries, and more.
Kindergarten students at Palm Pointe Educational Research School celebrated 100 days of learning. Students came to school decked out in their representation of 100. Some students dressed as 100 year old grannies and grandpas. Other students wore shirts decorated with 100 items or the 100 days theme. Additionally, students participated in academic activities to promote the 100th day. Our kindergarten students enjoyed celebrating all their accomplishments over the past 100 days. It will be exciting to see all they accomplish throughout the remainder of the year.
