100th Day of School 2017

What are you doing on the 100th Day of School?

So our 100th Day of School this year is on Monday.  Normally,  I'd be already to go.  However, I've been sick with the flu for a whole week!  I don't have to tell you how behind I feel right now!  I had to have a friend send home the 100th day letter to my parents earlier this week.  I get parents to donate the various items we need for our awesome 100th Day Snack.  So tomorrow (on Sunday, I can't believe it!),  I'm headed to school to  see what my parents sent in so that I can see what else I need to purchase in order to fill in the gaps.

I will also be cutting paper for our 100th Day Crowns as well.  I need to go to Walmart to pick up new ink cartridges so that I can print the headers that go on our crowns.

These are pictures from last year's 100th day of school.  If you want to read more about what we did last year, click here.

I'll come back after Monday, and post some new pics of what we do this year!

MLK Day 2017

What are you doing in your classroom for MLK Day?

My school is out on Monday in observance of the holiday dedicated to the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  When we return on Tuesday, we will learn all about the life of Dr. King.

I have a series of products called American Heroes.  These products contain material for both primary and upper elementary grades.  You can get this one, just in time for MLK day, Monday, January 16th.

You can find this product on TPT simply titled Martin Luther King, Jr., or click on the cover image or preview below to go directly there.

My kids and I love the reading website Epic!  And we love National Geographic Kids!  If you have not joined Epic, you'll want to go ahead and take advantage of the thousands of great books they have to offer.  

I plan to read this book about the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. to my kiddos when we return to school on Tuesday.  I don't have it in my classroom, but with Epic, I have access to so many wonderful books just like this one.  I project it on my Smart board and my students can read along with me.  

This is the image you will see when you first click onto their site.  You will probably recognize some of the titles at the bottom of their screen.  

Or you if you want your own copy, you can click on the link below to get it from Amazon and add it to your classroom library.  Here are some other great books I have in my classroom library that I like to read aloud.  My students love to take the books I read aloud, and put then in their book box to read during independent reading time that day.  


I'd love to hear from you.  What are you doing in your classrooms to celebrate MLK Day?  Feel free to leave comments below.
