100 Days of School!

Today we celebrated our 100th day of school!  We have been collecting canned goods all week to help stock the pantry of a local church.  The kids in my classroom and the classroom across the hall packed the cans in their backpacks and we walked over to the church to deliver our donations.

We started the day off singing our 100 day song and eating our chocolate donuts snack. 

The children worked together and created four 100 day collection posters. 

 They used popsicle sticks, paper clips, stickers, and bingo markers and counted by 2's, 5's, 10's, and 20s.

Teddy bears

Teddy Bears Cure a Cold is a cute story about a teddy bear named William. William has the flu and his fuzzy bear friends nurse him back to health.

Monday the children brought in teddy bears from home. We read, "Teddy Bears Cure a Cold." We are now pretending that our bears are sick. The children made beds; tomorrow they will make paper quilts for their bears. They will also make a paper "sick bear" with a tissue. My very creative teacher friend across the hall designed and shared with me the cute bear with a tissue. We will write a "how to" story of how to help our bears get well. We will also write get well notes to our bears.

The children used connecting cubes to measure their bears and make their beds.  They used shape templates to design their quilts.
