100 Days Smarter!

Happy 100th day of school!

We had a great day of reading about 100th day of school and writing about what we would do with 100 dollars.

Then after we washed our hands we made a special derdnuh snack.   (Derdnuh is hundred spelled backwards.) We carefully selected 10 pieces of 10 different snack items.  
(10 +10+ 10+10+10+10+10+10+10+10 =  100   
OR   10* 10 =  100)




We finished the day by making 100's hats and writing about what can do now compared to 100 days ago!


HAPPY 100TH DAY OF SCHOOL!
