100th Day

So last week we celebrated our 100th day... sort-of.  We had to spend our morning being video taped for a Kindergarten Readiness conference with the preschool teachers in my district.  They were supposed to tape us earlier in the week, but something came up and they needed to come on Friday (the 100th day).  I have a weird schedule this year and I only get to teach from 7:45-10:55.  After 11:00 we have lunch (I eat with the kids), bathroom break, special area, and recess.  We don't get back to the room until 1:10 and then go home at 1:30.  So, they spent the morning taping a "normal" day and did not leave until 10:00.  That gave us enough time to make a counting by 10's hat to wear and start our 100 day booklet.  We had to finish the book today because we ran out of time last week.  Needless to say I missed doing my usual 100 day activities.

I did have a family project that the students were encouraged to do.  They were asked to display a collection of 100 objects.  They could use anything around the house (buttons, cereal, stickers, pennies, etc.).  This year I got some cute projects.  Here are a few pictures of their family projects.  They were so proud to display them in the hallway for everyone to see!

I loved the fish made out of beads!

 This was described to me as Feather Fireworks!
 One Hundred buttons on a string
 This little boy loves basketball- he used beads to make a basketball and then had "basketball rules" along the bottom
 Pasta and candy hearts
 100 buttons on a shirt
 The display under our bulletin board
Sponge Bob was turned in today

Even though it was a crazy 100th day, we still enjoyed it!
