100 Days!

Can you believe January is almost over already?  We are having so much fun and the month is flying by!

Coming up next week is Spirit Day on Wednesday.  Show your school spirit by wearing the color of the month… Blue!

Friday is the 100th day of school! We have so many fun activities planned to celebrate! We have books and songs about the 100th day along with art projects and counting activities!

 

One Hundred Day Poem

We’ve come to school for 100 days,
The time has just flown by.
Five months, two seasons and we’re half way done,
When another surprise does arrive.
It’s the 100th day of school today.
Let’s start the day with a grin.
For tomorrow will be 101,
So let the celebration begin.

Here are some ideas for indoor snowy day play!

1.  Bring the snow inside! Put on your mittens and hats and explore the snow in a big bowl or tub!

2.  Play dress-up! Pull out those old prom and bridesmaid dresses and let your children put on a fashion show!

3.  Bake or cook! Have your kids help you make some yummy cookies!  Or let them decide what to make for dinner and help cook it!

4.  Arts and crafts!  Make a bird feeder out of peanut butter and birdseed! Birds need help in the winter finding food!

5.  Do a big puzzle! Work with your kids to find all of the outside pieces to get it started!

6.  Read some stories or watch a movie in front of the fireplace!

7.  Have fun and stay warm cuddled up on the couch with some yummy hot chocolate!

 

“Little January
Tapped at my door today.
And said, “Put on your winter wraps,
And come outdoors to play.”
Little January
Is always full of fun;
Until the set of sun.
Little January
Will stay a month with me
And we will have such jolly times –
Just come along and see.”
–  Winifred C. Marshall, January
