First, it's a Monday (insert unplesant feeling here).
Second, it's the 100th day of school. (Take away any thoughts of a normal schedule here).
Third, it's Ground Hog's Day (scramble to throw in a mini lesson or short video).
Fourth.......as predicted based on classroom mood and atmosphere.....tonight is a full moon.
(Continue with thoughts of drowning all day.)
As a teacher, I almost pride myself in being able to predict moon patterns and weather forecasts, lol!
Having said that, it was actually a successful day! We started with a few 100th day puzzles and dice games. Then wrote 100 words. Shockingly they LOVED this activity! (Probably because they got to wander with clip boards and talk.....loudly.....while i turned the other cheek. (I don't want to be the quite police all the time!)
My favorite thing was the Hershey's Kisses scavenger hunt. You would have thought I gave them all a $100 or a cell phone! They were so excited!
After we found all the kisses we checked them off on our 100's chart to see if we weren't missing any.
This is always an interesting activity for the kids....they can't wait to tell me what they wouldn't want!
Next we get the digits for 100 and create something!
I was so impressed with the stories this year!
I really have some writers this year! Can't wait to do some more things with them!
