Well....This is what I walked into on Monday!
TWO days of birthday shenanigans!
The kids loved it~
Yep, all the way down the hallway!
I believe our wonderful evening custodian, Rod,
had a hand in this labor intensive surprise!
Monday was our REAL 100th day!
We sure enjoyed our 100 day gorp...
many kiddos were surprised how little 100 was
when counting cereal or chocolate chips!
Here we are adding our 100 snack pieces...yummy!
100 Marbles at choice time!
Oh we loved this activity that went with the book
The Wolf's Chicken Soup.
There are 100 chicks in the story
which mysteriously were hidden around
our room after lunch!
We had a blast finding and placing the chicks
back into the 100's chart!
Gabby found 100!
What fun we had reviewing our numbers
This whole group activity was
a numeric picture!
Don't you just love our 100 day hats?
We counted by 10's
Oh yes....everyone got to take home a
lovely black balloon...we even shared
with Mrs. Kalmes and Mrs. Pilger's kids!
That was a LOT of balloons!
Don't you believe it!
50 feels young!
Just finished my first 10+ mile hike...
pics on a family blog coming soon...
really, I know I know, I've
been saying that for awhile....

Morning challenges are getting harder!
All three involved putting numerals in order up to 100.
