Kindergarten Celebrates “100” Day
The Fayette Academy kindergarten students recently celebrated their 100th day of school. The day was filled with many exciting activities such as counting by 1’s, 5’s and 10’s to one hundred, jumping and clapping to one hundred, reading books about 100th day, coloring a giant snake that was 100 inches long and working on several fun worksheets about 100 days of school.
Each child created a project that contained 100 items. After they presented their project, they drew a picture of their project. The students danced for 100 seconds several times and sang songs about 100 days. At snack they ate some yummy heart-shaped cookies that were decorated with 100.

IPads in the Classroom
This week the First Graders at Fayette Academy were introduced to EPIC! on their IPads. Epic! is an app for children 12 and under. It offers a large selection of eBooks that can be instantly discovered, read, and shared with friends. They had a great time with their new app, and think it’s great that they can read a new book whenever they want to.
