100 Days of Kindergarten

On Tuesday, Kindergarten celebrated 100 days of being at school. The entire day focused on the number 100:

To start the day, children brought in 100 things and told the class about them during news time; they used an app to see what they would look like when they are old and drew portraits of themselves.

They wrote about what they want to do before they turned 100. Some of the children’s responses included wanting to be a police man or woman, a teacher, a doctor, a scientist, artist, vet, a soldier and an inventor.

With $100.00 children identified what they would like to buy from lollies and dolls to a house or a car….if only.

In Math, students raced to see who could use a dice and count on to the number 100 first, they built a pyramid using 100 plastic cups, made a graph using 100 cars and sorting them into colours and making ten groups of 10 to make 100.

Kindergarten even stood in the formation of the number 100, to have their photo taken.

Lastly, everyone had a party, and what a feast it was, with all sorts of multicultural delicacies from samosas to dumplings, spring rolls, noodles, rice, lamingtons and fairy bread of course, and all sorts of sweet treats too. Children were all given a bubble wand to take home to remember their 100 Day Celebration.

The day was a huge success.

A special thank you to all the mums and dads who helped out on the day, sent in treats, and collected 100s of things at home. A very BIG thank you to the P&F for organising the bubble wands.

A Good relationship with your child builds resiliency

Having a good relationship with our children not only feels great for parents and children, but it also helps children to develop positive friendships at school, it can help them to build resiliency and it can also help with their behaviour at home and at school.

This week I am sharing with you an article from the Raising Children website about Good Family Relationships. In it, you'll find some great suggestions on how to make sure you're spending quality time with your children as well as ways to communicate positively with your children. It might be possible to make a few simple changes to your family's routine in order to increase connection and strengthen the relationship that you have with your children.

If you have questions or want to learn more about this then please come and have a chat with me and together we can work on some ideas that suit your family.
