Celebrating the 100th Day of School!

We’re all about 12 kinds of excited about celebrating the 100th day of school around these parts.

Mostly because there are only 77 days remaining in the school year…spring is a little over a month away…and it’s supposed to be balmy 50 degrees this week.  And all the teachers said: AMEN!
I would like to tell you that I planned oodles and oodles of fun stuff for the celebrating the 100th day of school.  Instead, I am going to be honest and tell you that I was running down to the copy room mid-morning to make sure my students weren’t the only 1st graders walking the halls without 100 days crowns poised atop their little heads.  Oops.
It’s just that we had an hour delay this morning.  And this week is our Valentine unit week.  And we’re behind in reading and math due to snow days.  And, I just can’t do everything. 
I’m sure if y’all are frequent blog readers, then you can totally relate.  I become overwhelmed sometimes with the plethora of absolutely ah-mazing ideas on the web.  And sometimes I have to stop myself from wanting to incorporate every idea in my curriculum.  My flashdrive has to be nearing capacity from the incessant downloading that I do!  It’s not a bad thing at all.  But, I have to realize there’s only one me, only so many hours in the day, and that it’s okay to not do it all.  Right?  Right.
Now that I’ve made myself feel better about toooootallly slacking on the 100th day…
I did do one super cutey activity, borrowed from our friend at Finally in FirstWhen she posted these last week, I just knew I was going to have my students make them.  And, they turned out darling!   Truly, the cutest 100-year-olds ever! Their  written responses were even cuter than their pictures.
“And I will roam the world in a wheelchair.  Me and my husband.”  OMIWORD, I LOVE IT!!!

“I will be old and lumpy…I will live in a house by the lake and I will have grandchildren and I will love them.”

In other news, at what age do children outgrow the I-want-to-pretend-to-be-a-dog/cat-for-the-entire-recess phase?  Because if I have one more 7-year-old come up and meow at me while I’m trying to pretend that there aren’t 75 children crawling around the gym meowing and barking at each other I’m going to lose it.  Just sayin’.
Happy mid-week, friends!!!
