Valentine’s Day and Kindness Celebration in Kindergarten! Students participated in a variety of Valentine's Day centers. Our science center investigated what would happen if a candy heart was placed in water, soda, and vinegar. Students then recorded their observations. Our art center used tissue paper to create heart collages for our gifts to our families. Our math center focused on addition practice with plastic hearts and addition mats. Our writing center was where students wrote a sentence about why they love their families to pieces for their family gifts. The last center was another art center where students created their special valentine bags for their cards and kindness strips later in the afternoon. view image
Just like we explicitly teach students how to read, problem solve and investigate, we also teach students how to stand up for others, celebrate themselves and recognize what makes each person unique. Third grade started the day answering the following questions: What makes you feel loved? Every person here is totally awesome! Let’s tell them why! An Upstander is a person who stands up for what is right. What can you do to be an upstander? Finish the sentence: Our classroom is... Being different isn’t a bad thing. It means you are Brave Enough to be yourself! What is one thing that makes you different? Do something everyday that makes the world a like more AWESOME! What can you do to make the world a little more awesome? What an amazing way to start the day! Third grade rocks!! view image
It’s Kindness Week at LaPerche. Students and staff are encouraged to do random acts of kindness for each other. When you do something kind or notice others being kind, students record it and add it to our mural in the cafeteria. The goal is for the mural to be completely covered by Friday afternoon. We are well on our way! view image

Students across the building engaged in all sorts of activities and centers based on 100. Thank you to all of the amazing volunteers who helped make the centers such a success! view image
