Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!

We decided today would be a good day to see if we could read 100 books at school.  100 is a pretty big number and we were not sure we could do this all in one day.  We each chose some just right books and got started.  After we read a book, we wrote the title of the book on a heart and put it in a basket.  By Math (which is just before recess) we counted the hearts and discovered we had already read 78 books as a class!  We did some figuring and found out we only needed to read 22 more.  Now, we had two friends home sick today, which meant we had 21 students in class today.  Maggie came up with a great idea...why don't we each read one book right after lunch?  Then we would only need 1 more.  

It was a great idea.  We did it and it worked.  We even added the story Mrs. Kurt read to us this morning, which put us right at 100.  It took us a while, but we did it.  We felt so proud.  Now, wait until you see what we do with all of those hearts...  

Can you believe we even had heart shaped chicken nuggets and heart shaped cookies for lunch today?

Our book exchange was a huge success!  Everyone got a new treasure to bring home and enjoy.

Then we played Valentine bingo.  We were pretty serious about it!

And for a special Valentine snack, we had cuties.  Mrs. Kurt said that the cuties were eating cuties!!

What a fun day.  I hope everyone is resting up for tomorrow...the 100th Day of Kindergarten!!!
