100th Day Hooray!

We celebrated our 100th Day on Friday.
It was so much fun!
We completed a challenge of writing 100 words!! 
Created art with the number 100.

The students LOVED drawing what they'll look like when they are 100 years old. 
So funny!

We also wrote about things that we would want 100 of... 
footballs, dollars, hamsters, penguins, puppies, unicorns, and more!

Here are some things we would NOT 100 of...
bananas, bees, spider, and snakes. 

We loved wearing our 100th Day hats around school. 
The students couldn't believe they could wear them to lunch! ha!

We also did some dancing, counting, and cooking a special 100th Day Snack (pretzel rod and mini bagels). 

Super proud of my kindergarten friends who have grown in so many ways this year!!!

We've been diving into some great non-fiction to learn about penguins. 

On Friday the students helped me create this Penguin Chart.

We also made these adorable paper penguins. 

LOVE THEM... and the little artists who created them! :)

Penguin researchers, here are a few things that I thought you'd like to explore:
