Happy 100th Day of School

I’m having a little bit of trouble believing that the 100th day of school is here already!  Before you know it, I’ll be writing about the last day…

Wildman’s homework for this special day was to place 100 edible things into a bag for snack or “brain break” as his teacher calls it.  He chose Froot Loops.  I poured him a big bowl and asked him to count out 100 before eating the rest for snack.  He quickly made two piles of fifty and scooped them into the bag to take into school.  He was quite eager to down the rest with a little milk as his afternoon snack yesterday 🙂

His second homework task involved cutting out a large number “100” (not forgetting the middle of the zeros) and gluing 100 things to it.  After brainstorming several options, Wildman finally settled on beads for his 100 things.  He also insisted that I fire up the hot glue gun while he counted out 10 piles of 10 beads to glue on his number.  So, that’s what we did.  Even though there are hot glue strings all over the place, I’m happy he chose that adhesive.  It dried super quick and it holds the beads firmly on the cardstock.

Happy 100th Day from our neck of the woods!

100th Day

Tuesday marked the 100th day of kindergarten for Wildman.  Can you believe that the school year is more than half over?  Wow!  I’m going to have a first grader on my hands soon.

As a fun project to mark this point in the school year, Wildman was asked to fill a water bottle with 100 things.  All of the things that a child chose had to be the same.  He chose to fill his bottle with pieces of bubblegum.  Some of his classmates chose pennies, beads, marbles, etc.  Mrs. Lacy weighed each bottle to see which was the lightest and which was the heaviest.  It was a fun little volume/mass science lesson.

When I picked him up from school, Wildman and his friends were each wearing these silly homemade crowns and paper 100 glasses.  So cute!  Wildman insisted on showing his dad his accessories at dinner last night so I made sure to snap a picture 🙂
