Kindergarten Father's Day Kick Ball Game
On Friday, June 9, all three kindergarten classes enjoyed a kickball game with their dads or other special guests! Our class was the red team! Mrs. Atwood's class was the white team and Mrs. Aithol's class was the blue team! One class kicked the ball and ran the bases! Another class was in the field getting the balls!! The third class cheered everyone on!!! After everyone on a team had kicked the ball and run home, the teams switched places until everyone had done each of the three activities! After that, everyone ran a victory lap!!! Finally, we walked up closer to school and enjoyed watermelon and lemonade together! It was a fun afternoon!!!
Happy Father's Day, Dads and Grandpas!!

Play Dates With Our Reading Partners
The girls and boys have been having "play dates" with their reading partners! They are using reading mats with pictures of different activities to do with their reading partners! All the possible activities are listed on the left side of the mat. The partners choose together what activity they will do together. Once they have completed the activity, they move the picture from the "to do" side to the "done" side!
