100 Days of Kindergarten 2009

jonny-dragon

After an uncertain start, Jonny has been doing well in kindergarten.  He is learning so much – he can read simple books, is getting better at writing (even though he still has a tendency to reverse “b”, “d” and “s’).  He is such a big boy in general, and is usually always ready to help out.

Last week he celebrated his 100th day of kindergarten!  To celebrate, his teachers sent home a family assignment.  Jonny came up with the idea for dragon scales all by himself, but everyone helped with the final project (except for Nate and Ben).  Even though I usually complain about these assignments, I really enjoyed working on this one with the big boys.   It won’t be too many years before they will be too old for art projects, after all.

    Wow – that is easily the coolest “100 things” I have EVER seen!! We’ve done the usual… paper clips, stickers LOL – this year we did 100 non-pareils in a little Tupperware container – can you imagine counting those out, took several tries!

    I’m not sure how I wandered into your blog but I enjoy it!

    That project had a great idea behind it and was executed perfectly. Seriously, kids do this in kindergarten!? Definitely a keeper!

    I’m glad he is enjoying school.

    Karen didn’t need too much convincing to draw a dragon for the “100 things” project. She’s too big a Tolkein fan.

    The Dragon Artwork looks fabulous, and that it was a grand famiy event – even better! Yes, savour the joint projects, it will probably then go to “mum, can you help me” (then misteriously dissappears) to “no mum, I don’t need your help – get out of my room”!!
