Mrs. Dina's Kindergarten

Week of April 14th- April 17th

Spirit Week!

We had so much fun during Spirit Week! We started off with Game Day on Tuesday! Your children had the opportunity to play each game in groups. I loved the games they brought to school! Your children helped each other and explained directions to each other! I love seeing your children work together so cooperatively! On Wednesday, we had crazy hair day! Your children were so creative! We had so many different looks! I believe Thursday was our favorite day of the week! We all really enjoyed going to school in our pajamas! We had pillows, blankets, and stuffed animals to help our classroom become super cozy! We also watched The Magic School Bus Kicks Up a Storm while eating popcorn. Finally, on Friday, we had Sports Day! I believe we covered every sport! Thank you for helping your children participate in our Spirit Week! Your children really look forward to special days like these.
