It's Finally Friday (Oops Saturday)

Y'all I really love to teach. I love my little people.  I love to create exciting lessons. I love everything about my job. Including a good snow day. And guess what? While every surrounding school in the area was on a delay or off, I was slip sliding my way to school.  I think every teacher deserves a delay every now and then.  So with that I say, TGIF, it's finally Friday!!! (Only guess what? I fell asleep while writing this, so now...it's Saturday!)

I must say this week was jam packed with fun! So hold on tight, because it's time for a picturepalooza!

This week we did a million things with the book The Wolf's Chicken Stew. My 100th Day unit is based on the book and it's perfect for the 100th Day.  Here are a few pictures I took.  

In this book the character changes.  We discussed how the wolf changed and what event in the story caused him to change.  
We also searched for 100 chicks and then gave the wolf 100 chick kisses.  We tallied each 10 until we knew we had 100. We also wrote an opinion piece on if we'd like to have 100 brothers or sisters.  The consensus was NO WAY! 
We started our day by making 10's hats. My kiddos had to find 10 ways to make 10 by coloring in the strip.  Then they colored the front and looked adorable.  I made the front of the hat and the strips came from Kim Adsit's unit.  
We also made these adorable cookies! My super creative friend Cara has them in her 100th Day unit.  I made a little writing paper and we added our cookie with 100 chips.  They are just too precious! 
We played a "Race to 100".

 Such a blast! 
In addition to the 100th Day fun, we are also working on Research and "All About" books.  
Here are a few of my kiddos really into researching fish! Gotta love the portability of the good old iPad.  

Now it's time to actually do something around this house.

  1. This looks like so much fun! Our 100th day is toward the end of February. I love the 100th day! There are so many fabulous resources out there now. My school just got ipads. I'm so excited about them but a little overwhelmed. Is there an app you use to have the kids research? Anything you could pass along about ipads would be appreciated! :)
    Happy super bowl weekend!
