One Hundredth Day of School

The 100th day of school is Feb. 5th. I would like for each child to bring in a collection of 100 like items (bottle tops, buttons, keys, nails etc.) I would like to be able to keep the collections for our math center. Please no food. We will count, share and compare the items.

As a community service, my class and our 3rd grade buddies will try and collect 100 pair of boys underwear and 100 pairs of boys socks for the Monarch School for the homeless downtown. I have been in touch with the director and right now this is their biggest need- size infant to teenagers. It will be fun to group these items as they usually come in multiples of 2 or 3.

A big thank you to Davis Abell who donated the January book for our Book Club. We were sorry he was out sick all week.
