Happy 100th Day…. and…. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Whew! We had a busy, busy week in first grade. With the 100th day of school and Valentine’s day back-to-back, it made for a fun, crazy, and exciting last two days of the week 🙂

Up first… the 100th day of school! It’s such a great milestone in our year. It means that we are 100 days into our journey- 100 days smarter and 100 days bigger! The kids {and teachers} love this day. It’s just a lot of fun- the kids are so proud of being in school this long and are so excited to celebrate!

We have the kids decorate capes at home, with 100 things on them of course! We wear the caps all day long and as one kiddo told me, “We’re just like super heroes!” Yes, we were 🙂

They all looked so awesome! We had stickers, pictures, stars, and pom pons! They all reflected the kid’s personalities and all looked so cool. They are the perfect thing to help us celebrate this important day.

We spent the day doing lots of exciting 100th day themed things, including…..

writing 100 words….

It was a blast! Everything we did revolved around the number 100. It was a really great day and one we will all remember.

 

As if that wasn’t enough fun….. the next day was our Valentine’s Day celebration!

We used candy hearts to sort, count, and graph in math.

Of course, we also made these ADORABLE bags to hold all of our Valentine’s day cards.

They were so easy to make. The white heart was cut out for the kids and they had to cut up pieces of red and pink to make a mosaic. After, we just glued on their name and stapled to a brown lunch bag. It made for the perfect place to pass out and store our cards to each other!

I didn’t get any other pictures because we were too busy celebrating! But the rest of our day included lots of Valentine’s day stories, Valentine’s day cards, and Valentine’s day snacks. We had a great celebration!

Overall, it was a great two days. They were filled with smiles, laughs, and lots of hugs! This is a great bunch of kiddo’s and I really enjoyed celebrating with them!

Thanks for checking out our first grade adventure!
