100 days & counting...

On Monday we reached our big milestone in first grade - the 100th Day of School.  It's a pretty big celebration and we took full advantage of having fun with it all day long.
 He used his 100 marshmallows to make a dinosaur (notice the shirt.....I see a theme :-)
This year I used something new, stations from Cara Carroll.  They were so much fun!  We had eight different stations to rotate through and they were all great at practicing and using the number 100.
 100 cups for stacking
100 dots
100 cubes.  How creative is this?!?

100 pattern blocks

Finally at the end of the day we had our T-shirt fashion show.  This was a fabulous way to end the day.  I put on a little 'fashion show' music from YouTube and the kiddos get to dance their way around the room to show off their T-shirt creation.  They did such a great job!
And clearly, great minds think alike :-)

The Big Game!

With the Super Bowl coming up this weekend our class joined in the excitement.  We used this adorable little football guy to make our predictions about who would win Super Bowl 51.  

Of course, for as many students LOVE football and know every detail of the game I have an equal amount of kiddos that don't know a darn thing about the game or really care who wins.  When we are writing our predictions we talk about why/how a team could win a tournament.  We discussed things likes good teamwork and lots of practice and hard work.

Overall our class was New England Patriots 15 vs. Atlanta Falcons 8.
May the best team win!
