Celebrating 100s Day

Today we celebrated 100's Day. This means we have been in school for 100 days! Wahoo! I think its more of a celebration for the teacher! Our REAL Hundred's Day was like two days after Valentine's Day and I WAS NOT letting that happen! Chaos!
Anyways, I allowed the children to dress up like old people. Only a few did, but OH.MY.HILARIOUS! We had glasses, hats, argyle sweaters, rolled up pants, suspenders and for the girls, curly hair. Oh and one girl had on a "grandma-ish" dress... come to find out her GRANDMA GAVE it to her....you know, anythings goes! We counted to 100, wrote to 100, had 100 treats....marshmallows, chocolate chips, cheetos, pretzels, M&Ms, goldfish crackers, and other stuff I can't remember. I had them pick 10 of each food, making 100. They were in LOVE. Since I am not allowed to post pictures of them, here is their artwork of what they will look like in 100 years! They are dArLing! If you look carefully, some kids change ETHNICITIES when THEY grow old! I have only a few that are not caucasian...in real life, not according to their drawings :)
