Last week I had bus duty so that was the reason for the lack of posting! That and trying to finish up this unit and surviving my first unannounced pop-in evaluation under this new evaluation system.. YIKES! On Friday we celebrated the 100th day of school... I was t-totally tired by the end of the day! But we had a fun day! Here are a few pics from our celebration.

 Throughout the day I drew out a name and that student got to pick a balloon for us to pop. Inside each balloon was a different 100 activity for us to complete. Some examples of things we did are... 100 jumping jacks, draw 100 shapes, count by 2's to 100, do 100 sit-ups, touch our nose 100 times, clap our hands 100 times, blink our eyes 100 times, etc. My favorite was 100 seconds of silence!!!! :)


We made a 100th day trail mix!

This was a pinterest idea. Sorry for the dark picture... maybe you can tell what it is.. if not this 100 was a police van :)


We completed the little 100th day book that you can find at First Grade a la Carte, Can you guess what this little drew for what he would look like in 100 years??? HA

We did a ton of other activities... but I didn't get pictures of every single thing. But they were all pretty much pinterest ideas. I sent home a brown paper sack with a note at the beginning of the week asking for parents to help their put 100 of the same item in the bag. They wrote clues about their 100 item and then they shared with the class the clues while we took turns guessing what was in the bag. They got pretty creative with this.., I was totally stumped with the 100 UNO cards! I got the kids 100 day glasses from Really Good Stuff. They were so precious in them.

And this is totally random but.....here is a snowman cookie snack we made a couple of weeks ago.. this was pinterest inspired as well.


Well if you made it to the end of this super duper long post.. thanks for hanging in there!! The first person to comment will snag a copy of my new Dr. Seuss unit for.. FREE :)

Happy Thursday night! I'm pumped that tomorrow is FRIDAY!!

Sue T said...

Help! I can't find your Dr. Seuss crafts on TPT. I really want the patterns.

Elisabeth said...

Hi Sue T, I made them unavailable due to needing to change the clip art and also needing to update the file and change/add some things to it. I just have not gotten around to fixing it yet, but it is on my to-do list and I plan on re-posting it eventually. If you are interested I can put it back on long enough for you to purchase. Just let me know. Thanks so much for your interest! :)

I would really like a copy of your Seuss unit. We are celebrating all next week.
Is it possible to get a copy?
Thanks!

So I'm thinking that I can't access your TpT Dr. Seuss packet due to the regulations. Hmmm, do you have a similar type packet available under a different name?
