I Survived!

I survived…..100 days in first grade.  Today was the big day! 
A day when we stray from our usual routine for celebration and chaos!  I’m just about spent after staying up ever so late in preparation of the big day and then going through the whirlwind of events that were today.  Last night I slaved away on this little celebratory banner. 
And then there are the events of today:
Made our 100th Day Hats! 
We played 100th Day Bingo
We counted by 10’s until we had 100 chicks giving the wolf from the Wolf’s Chicken Stew 100 kisses.
My cute little teaching partner made 100 cookies for the first grade. YUM!

 100 Years Old (Portraits and Interactive Writing)

We searched for 100 hidden chicks and put them in rows of 10 until we knew we had them all.

10 groups of 10 make Froot Loop BLING! 

Ended our day with 100 day trail mix. 
(My 100th day motto) 
Sugar them up and send the home. 

I even got some 100th day gifts. Yippee for me! 

One parent bought me EVERYTHING on my wish list from my website. One of the items:
How much do I love FLAIR pens?

Another parent bought me this bee-u-tifal Pashmina! 
How lucky am I?

I hope you had or will have an equally awesome day! 

P.S. To top it all off this blog is being featured on Teachingheart.net! 
What an honor!

    Our 100th day was Monday…but I had strep. Boo!
    They only had a half day due to weather, and we've been off ever since!
    Hope you enjoyed your 100th day — I'm jealous!
    (SUPER cute banner by the way!)

  3. So much fun! I was wondering where I could find directions for those super cute 100th day portraits? I think I have seen them somewhere else, but I can't seem to find them! I want to make them will my kiddos on our 100th day…this Thursday!
