Thursday was the 100th day of school and we had a BLAST! My kinder kiddos dressed like they were 100 years and old. Talk about precious!!! I joined in the fun as well. What happens at Bingo stays at Bingo! :)
Our school also released 100 balloons for the 100th day. The kids went wild when our principal walked onto the playground with the balloons and they were absolutely mesmerized when the balloons were released.
Throughout the day, we did countless activities correlating to 100. We added 100 toppings to a pizza, created structures with 100 cups, played 100th day hopscotch, and created 100 gum balls. One of my favorite activities to do is the 100th day snack.
This week has been CRAZY to say the least! I tested two days and was out sick on Wednesday with a stomach bug. I am truly grateful for wonderful team that took care of me on Wednesday and for a wonderful school district that allows us to have subs while we test. While I was away, my kiddos read one of my favorite winter books and used this adorable "create your own snowman" from Scholastic. They read "Sneezy the Snowman" as a class and then used the snowman page for story retelling.
Throughout January, we have been researching penguins. I absolutely love researching penguins with my kindergarteners because my kids become so invested in our research. I love seeing my kiddos so enthralled! We made these cute penguins from A Cupcake for the Teacher. She is extremely talented and has the cutest craftivities! The close reading Chit Chat is from the fabulous Deanna Jump. :)
