Opening- color the 100th day crown, count the days in school, dot the days on the ten-frame chart, count the days left until the last day of school
Read aloud- Miss Bindergarten
Review videos on youtube- counting to 100 (Superhero, Reedeez 2+2, coins)
Dot sets of 10 up to 100 with paint
Make behavior pipe cleaner beads- Put 6 on for walking in the hall
Mix up the 100 treats kids brought and pass out to sort
Create the graph to graph the treats- remember to not give too much since the graph is small (M&Ms, pretzels, popcorn, Pirate’s Booty, marshmallow, chocolate chips, cherry chips, Cookie Crisp, Goldfish, Mike & Ike, jellybean, candy hearts)
We didn’t have time to get to many of the things that were planned, but the kids had a great day!
Here is a fun math activity for Halloween that will also cover some Kindergarten standards.
Colorado Math Standards:
MA.K.4.2.b Classify objects and count the number of objects in each category
MA.K.1.1.b Count to determine the number of objects

On the tables:
Name tags placed with contact paper
4 pages: Getting to know your child sheet (return later), checklist of places to put supplies, half-sheet with quick things to know such as allergies and how the child is going home each day and finally the daily schedule.
I had the students put their scissors in the colored caddies at their tables, put the large items such as wipes, tissues, and baggies in boxes at the front of the room. The rest of the supplies were left on the table at their spot.
welcome to kindergarten
I also had a large name tag which I had them hold while I took their photo. This will allow me to learn their names before school starts.
The next two days will be assessment days. Each child signed up for 30 minutes to do a 1:1 test.
