100 days of school

Really have we been in school for 100 days?  Time sure does fly when you are having as much as we are! We have celebrated the 50s and 80s day so what could I have planned for this big day?  A LOT!! We counted and counted.  We rolled dice, made trail mix, danced, sang, and counted 100 steps from our front door.  We talked about our 100 bags and amazing enough there were no repeats.  We made pictures with a 100 and they were super cool!  For the first time I rounded up 100 Legos for each child to see their creations.  They were fabulous!  Check out the youtube video.  We had a ball making the first 100 days so memorable.  What do I have planned for the next 100?  You will have to check back to see.

Another guest reader...

Kasey's big sister wanted to read a book to our class.  She is in 3rd grade and practices her fluency by reading aloud.  She did a FABULOUS job of reading Parts to our class and they really enjoyed hearing Rachel read.  Parts is a Reading Counts book and the kids are really taking off with their points.  I bet Rachel inspired them to read the rest of the Parts series.  Thanks Rachel.
