Can you believe there are only a few more weeks of Kindergarten left? The year has gone by so quickly! To help celebrate each day, the Kindergarteners are making a 20 day countdown paper link. This activity allows them to practice their number sense by writing and organizing paper strips numbered 1 through 20. It also requires the children to practice not only fine-motor skills with using tape or staplers, it also requires them to practice executive function skills with putting tasks in order.
Starting Thursday, May 10th, students may begin to tear off one paper link a day after they have returned home from school. There are 20 paper links, plus one more "golden" link that celebrates the very last day of school on Friday, June 8th. Families can choose where they would like to hang their paper links at home.
