100th Day and Winter

What a fun week!  On Tuesday we celebrated the 100th day of school!  It was a fun-filled day!  The students and I dressed up as if we were 100 years old.  The costumes were great.  Then we had fun counting sets to 100 all day!

 Ellie and her mom made special cookies for our snack.

 Making 100 day crowns.

 Adding 100 gumball dots for a 100 day gumball machine

 Everyone's favorite 100th day activity - We had 10 different snacks, the students counted out 10 of each snack to make 100.  Because we learned that 10 groups of 10 makes 100!

 Self-portraits of themselves at 100 years old

 Great 100 day books

 The remainder of the week we learned about winter.  One of our favorite topics was penguins!  We learned all about this Arctic birds and how they eat and live.

 Penguin snacks

 We made these snow globes and used them as a writing prompt.  The students wrote "If I lived in a snow globe I would..."


 Everyone loved making "snowballs" (It's actually soap!)

 We put it all together and made our own snowman. 

 Dakota had a cool show-and-tell.  He shared with us a real bee honeycomb he found at his house!

Please reminder to send a shoebox for us to decorate for Valentine's Day.  Each student will need a shoebox to hold their Valentine cards in for the class party.

February 14 - Valentine Class Party - 1:45 PM - Each student will need to exchange Valentine cards with their classmates.  We have 22 students in our class.  I will be sending home a list of names so your child can address their cards.  If you would like to help with refreshments for the party please email me, , send a note, or call.  Thanks so much!!
