100th Day Of School!

It's hard to believe we've been in school 100 days!! The days have flown by!
I found this idea on Pinterest and decided to make it for my classroom door. It was a hit!
A few students dressed up as 100 year olds. 




My kiddos had an assignment to bring 100 items. This little girl decided to glue her 100 items on her t-shirt.  I will have to remember to do that next year...

At snack time, we dumped a ton of food on the tables and  sorted food to make our 100th Day Snack. A couple students used the circles to group food.

Our day was a success! 100 days down and 80 left to go!

Five For Friday...on Saturday

Dear Blog,
    This is your first post of 2016! I promise not to neglect you this year. I will make an effort to write with you several times each month.
Sincerely,
Your busy owner

Don't ya just love Doodle Bugs Teaching?? I've found lots of good teacher blogs in her link parties.



Monday- started wearing a fitbit flex this week. I have to say I love this thing! I like that it keeps me accountable. If you use a fitbit account, I would love to be your friend!...just don't laugh at my slow progress. I'm a newbie to this healthy life style thing...
Tuesday-The kids came back to school. They were VERY quiet! Like scary quiet. We set New Year's resolutions for home and school..The kids made a cute craft and writing but of course I forgot to take a picture. Oops! ...You can find this foldable book here.


Next, we read The Mitten. I love that there are T.O.N.S of activities on Pinterest and TPT for this book.
Each year, I do a sequence activity with this book. I found this activity and really liked it! You can find it here.


Wednesday-The Hat. I didn't know this book existed until this week. The kids really liked it. A couple of them noticed this book had farm type animals and The Mitten had forest animals. After they mentioned that, we had to compare them.



Thursday-The Snowy Day.  I read a teacher blog that said she planned to do a lot of activities using snow. I wish we got snow. We only usually get ice :( When we read this book, my students couldn't  really make a personal connection with it. Most have never been in deep snow. A few have never built a snowman..This book is awesome for cause and effect..I found this freebie on TPT. You can grab it here.

Friday-Tacky The Penguin We dressed up tacky for our friend Tacky The Penguin. 
This is a great activity for the book. I chose to do it whole group. 
I hope you have a restful weekend. I am enjoying my rainy lazy day!
