100th Day!

The 100th day of school is just the best. When else do you have a good excuse to do things 100 times? Since the first day of school, we've been adding money to the pocket chart by our calendar.  Yesterday we finally had 100 cents!

We celebrated this milestone by making crowns with 100 things on them first thing in the morning.

After  reading a story about 100 day, predicting where 100 steps from our classroom would be and then  actually walking 100 steps, and counting 100 objects in a visual discrimination activity, we finally ate our 100 snack.  

I had 10 plates of different snacks lined up, and everyone got to take 10 things off of each plate.  

After everyone got their snack, we shook our 100 pieces up.
Look at all those happy faces!

  Of course, P.E. was 100 themed, and later we wrote stories about pictures we had created using the numbers 1, 0, and 0.  Those will be hanging up at the open house tomorrow night!

Today, we had our second chemistry lesson. We tried to answer the question, "What is a solution?" We discussed what happens when something dissolves. The kids decided that it's a good thing sand doesn't dissolve in water, or there would be no ocean floor. I thought that was a pretty good observation. 

Tomorrow is Groundhog's Day, so we'll have another themed day this week. I can barely keep up! :)
