Friday 5 and a Fundraiser

I am linking up with the Five for Friday party.  Click on the pic below to join in too.

There is a fundraiser going on for a school in my state.  It is in support of the Roswell middle school victims' families and community of Roswell.  The blogger over at My Fabulous Class helped create this great fundraiser with help from many top TpT sellers.  Check out her site or post by clicking on the heart or go straight to the products by clicking on the product cover page below.

We had our 100th day on Friday.  It was a great day.  We created a trail mix with everyone bringing in 100 food items each (cereal, goldfish, raisins, choc chips, etc.).  I combined the food together in a big bowl and passed out a cup full to each kiddo.  The kids then sorted the items into groups and graphed the food items....and ate it all.

We made 100th day crowns and completed a variety of 100 exercises (hula hooping, jumping, toe touching, steps, etc.).  I made a frame for a 100th day photo and created a silly door entrance.

It was exhausting and fun.

I've had a few folks ask about apps that are good for math and reading lately.  I don't really know a ton of examples of apps.  So, anybody out there feel like sharing some cool ideas that you have come upon?

My class will present a flag ceremony in a couple weeks.  I am doing it on Dr. Seuss' book The Cat in The Hat and Thing 1 and Thing 2.  We are using a page out of a TpT product I bought.  It's a good product by Kindergarten Korner- it's good for 1st too.  If you need some Seuss ideas, check it out by clicking on it.

This morning there will be some super fun Blogger people getting together.  I really wish I could go, but I have family things going on and won't make it as I had hoped.  Have fun and send me pics so I may post your cool Valentine crafts on my blog!!!
