100th Day of School

We have been waiting in anticipation for this day for quite some time! 
We did so many activities to celebrate our 100th day of school. 
We started the day with everyone piling in wearing 100 objects on their shirts! It was classic to see the creativity and time that went into their shirts! We then put on our 100 item necklaces created with Fruit Loops – clearly it was a wonderful accessory to their shirts! 
I literally think we did 100 activities today! We are exhausted! Here is a peak at our day! 

Did 100 exercises (10 squats, 10 jumps, 10 push-ups, etc.)
Wrote 100 words
Made a crown with 100 tallies
Made 100 gumballs
Sorted our 100 items into groups of 10 
Made a 100 piece snack
Made towers with 100 cups
Counted how many words we could write in 100 seconds
Counted how many jumping jacks we could do in 100 seconds
Counted how many jumping jacks we could do in 100 seconds
Went on a hunt for 100 hidden pennies
Made a bucket list  of things we'd like to do BEFORE we turn 100 
(see slideshow below this project was ADORABLE!)

Tell your child to kiss their brain, because they successfully passed the 100th day of school!

Groundhogs Day

Well...our optimism failed up this year! We were REALLY hoping that the groundhog would NOT see his shadow Monday morning. But naturally he did. 
On Friday we made little groundhogs and graphed our predictions. We had 12 students predict he would NOT see his shadow and 8 predict that he would see his shadow. Then, the entire grade level put up their predictions in the hallway! 
Time to bundle up, at least 6 weeks more of winter it will be!
