100th Day Projects

I'm a few days late here on posting this, but I wanted to share some of my students' 100th day projects.  We celebrated our 100th day of kindergarten last week... on Valentine's Day.  That's right, folks... two of the craziest days wrapped up into one little school day!  We had lots of fun celebrating, but I must admit I was quite happy to see the clock strike 4:00.

This little girl made an entire binder/book full of 100 different items she found around the house.  Everything was neatly taped and arranged on paper and slid into page protectors.  The front of the binder even had a little biography about herself and list of the 100 different items!  It's really great!

I love this one!  It's so bright and cheery!

 Pinspiration?  This is so cute... and my kiddos are super excited to eat this one up!

Here's a quick shot of some of my other creations.  We had flower petals, cereal, stickers, candy, and more!  I was really impressed with their creativity.

Did your kids bring in projects to help celebrate the 100th day of school?  And, is it too early to start the countdown to summer?  Just wondering...... I can't believe how fast the first 104 have flown by!

Five for Friday

So, my very favorite non-teaching blog is The Small Things Blog.  It's truly amazing.  Fashion, make-up, home decor, and much more... all my favorite things wrapped up in one lil' blog.  You should really check it out if you aren't already a stalker follower of her blog.  Actually, it's quite likely you've run across her hair tutorials on Pinterest.  Ok, I'm digressing here.  My point was that every week she does a "High Five for Friday" post and I always enjoy reading it so I was super excited when I saw that Kacey over at Doodle Bugs Teaching has been hosting a "Five for Friday" linky party.

1. I am super impressed with the progress my kinders are making with their writing.  I recently moved my writing time to first thing in the morning (rather than after lunch).  They are writing the second they walk in the door before they even start unpacking.  I'm finding that they are so much more focused on their task.

2. We had a busy Thursday celebrating Valentine's Day and our 100th Day of School!  My sweet hubby surprised me at school with this beautiful bouquet of flowers.

3. My blog business cards arrived in the mail this week.  It's just easier to give someone a card than spell everything out for them.  Do other bloggers out there have business cards?

4. My principal and I have been working very hard on getting our data boards up and running.  (Keep in mind this is a first year school so it's one small step at a time.)  This is a picture from earlier in the week.  I'll post completed pictures once we get the data and headers up!  :)

5. It's a loooong weekend!  Happy President's Day!
