100th Day of School

We had a great 100th day of school! We did lots of activities revolving around the number 100. We counted out 100 pieces of snacks to make a "100th day of school trail mix", we counted our collections of 100 objects that we brought in from home, we made a picture out of the number "100"

One student brought in100 Legos...

Another brought in 100 pieces of macaroni...

100 googly eyes...

One student glued 100 pom poms onto a poster and made a picture out of them!

This student turned their number "100" into balloons!

This student turned their "100" into the American flag!

This student turned their "100" into a horse and buggy!
This student turned their "100" into a butterfly!

We tried to build something out of 100 cups!

Some 100 year old lady came to visit us!

We all had a fun time walking through the "100 banner"!

Mystery Reader

We had a special guest "mystery reader" come and visit last week! It was Mr. Lloyd! He read us the story "Silly McGilly" which was about a mischievous little leprechaun named Silly McGilly who likes to play tricks!

We love having mystery readers come visit us! If anyone has a relative that lives far away we could do a Skype mystery reader if they are interested! You can sign up on our class page

Greater Alligator!

We have been learning about the concept of more and less. When comparing two numbers we talk about which number is more and which number is less and how much more/less it is then the other number. This is a great skill to practice at home too with a deck of cards or simply by just having two people pick a number up to 10 then when your child gets comfortable with knowing which number is more or less within 10 you can move up to numbers up to 20! Here we are playing with the "greater alligator" we learned that the open alligators mouth always wants to eat the bigger number. For example: 2 < 4
