K-2nd Grade 100th Day Celebration, Mardi Gras Style
February 22nd will be the official 100th day of school. Our kinder through second grade classes will be recognizing the 100th day of school through many hands-on activities on this special day. The students will also host a 100th Day Mardi Gras Parade on Friday, February 23rd in which they will showcase their 100th Day Project. Kinder, first, and second grade students are to collect and count 100 items (buttons, beads, elbow noodles, etc,.) While they are counting, they should count aloud to 100 by 1’s, 5’s, and 10’s. After counting, they are to arrange and display the 100 items in an interesting and creative way, for example, on a shirt, hat, poster, rims of sunglasses, etc.… All projects are due to their classroom teacher by Thursday, February 22nd. Kindergarten-2nd grade students will showcase their 100th Day Projects in a Mardi Gras parade in which our 3rd through 5th grade students will be the parade watchers. Please note that this project is only for kinder through second grade students. If you have any questions about the 100th Day Project, please email your child's homeroom teacher.
Kudos to Ms. Nandolia
Sending Kudos to Ms. Nandolia for all that she does for our Palmer Bears. Ms. Nandolia is one our para educators. She has worked at Palmer for many years. She gives 110% daily. This past week she went above and beyond by preparing one of our young Palmer Bears for a trip to the dentist office. We appreciate you, Ms. Nandolia!
K-5th Grade Science Vocabulary Parade, March 2nd
What is it all about?
Vocabulary parades help to bring words and their definitions alive for our kids! It is a way to celebrate our love of words and science. It also provides a fun and academic focus for dressing up in creative homemade costumes.
How do we get ready?
Choose one of your grade level’s science vocabulary words and think of a way to create an interesting costume design. Be creative!
You can recycle all sorts of items around your home to make a creative homemade costume: boxes, poster-board, hats, paper bags, fabric, tin foil, etc.
Remember to make a large card or sign with your vocabulary word on it or use the template provided, so we’ll know which word you represent in the parade. You can carry the word, make a headband or hat, or have it as part of your costume. Your word just needs to be visible somewhere on you!
Bring your costume to school with you. Make sure you can put on your costume by yourself, and that you have all of the parts. Please see more information about the science vocabulary parade in this week's Tuesday folder or contact your child's science teacher.
