100th Day and Vowel Fun!

Whew!  Can I just say this week was exhausting!? There seemed to be a high level of excitement in the air, maybe it was the snow, the 100th day, or the snow?  How about both!  The kids were PSYCHED all week for our 100th day celebration. We started by making our 100th day placements early on in the week (so we could get those babies laminated in time), our 100 year old portraits, and every day we have eagerly been counting down the days. By Friday, we weren't sure if we were even going to have school with all the snow (of course we did), and our 100th day went off without a hitch. Here is a peek at a few goodies from the day...
Cute class picture (lots of 100 year old cuties here!)
100 Golden Coins Hunt.
Fill 100 Boxes Dice Roll Game.
 100th day snack (see how cute the place mats came out?) 


Ok, now totally switching gears. Remember how I wrote about our Opinion Writing Unit last week?  Well, its over and on the assessment one of the kids wrote all about how much they love... not puppies, not ice cream, not their best friend, but... wait for it... vowels. Yes, you heard right, vowels!  My heart got all warm and fuzzy when I read that... and he even gave some super reasons why he loves learning about vowels!  I think that means my vowel unit is doing its job keeping them focus, engaged, and having fun. Here are a few highlights of the materials we are using for our Short and Long Vowel Unit.
Mini Books for each long and short vowel
 Snip, Mix, and Spell pocket chart fun

Next up... Valentine's Day (Do you think it will be more exhausting than the 100th day?)
Have a great week everyone!
(P.S.... Woohoo for Early Spring Break next week!)

  3. I think the hunt using the 100 chart is a brilliant idea! Was the dice game like a race to see how long it would take them to fill it up?

  4. Yes exactly! They rolled, counted, and colored. Some of my kids need help tracking correctly on the number grid and this was a quick and easy game to practice that.
