We celebrated International Dot Day in library this week, which focuses on perseverance, growth mindset, and creativity! In our story, the main character Vashti learns to trust in her skills and to keep trying even when she doubts herself. By the end of the book, Vashti finds the courage to make her mark on the world and create masterpieces by starting with only one dot on her paper. During our lesson, we listened to "The Dot Song", read the book called "The Dot" by Peter Reynolds, and drew our own dots using paper plates!

Ahoy! We had some pirates wash ashore last Friday at Rickard when our Kindergarten classes had a pirate dress up day! Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Carriers' classes participated in many pirate themed activities on Friday, including going on a treasure hunt and looking for treasure in a treasure chest! What's a pirate's favorite letter, you ask? Well, of course it's "RRRR" :)
