Throwback Thursday

Hello, friends!

It's Throwback Thursday.  I'm throwing it back to 1986. LOL!

Wasn't I such a cutie? Anyway...I'm here to "throwback" to a previous post. :-)

 I'm linking up with the FABULOUS Cara from The First Grade Parade for her Throwback Thursday linky.  I haven't been blogging long (8 months), so I went back through to find a day where my students had a blast.  It was my favorite 100th day of school to date even though I was sick. I wanted to decorate my door for the 100th day.  Can you believe that on the 99th day of school I got sick and couldn't come to prepare?  Anyway, this post was dated February 1st, 2013.

So, here to it is.
Hello, friends!

Today my 2nd graders were 100 days smarter. We had a BLAST today doing all sorts of things!

First, if you haven't had your 100th day of school yet, then you definitely need to check out Rebecca's, Darlin' in First, packet. On Monday my students were given the assignment to collect 100 items and put them into a mystery bottle. Then, they came up with clues to help the detectives figure out what their mystery item was. So much fun!! Check out these pictures.

Detectives hard at work!

Mrs. Hunter can I shake the bag to figure it out?

Second, we used my 100th day packet in math and writing. My students learned they there are so many more things you can do with a 100's chart. We counted by 5's and 10's, colored odd and even numbers, and even wrote 100 words. Then we ended the day by writing what they thought life would be like when they are 100.

This one was hilarious!  Her life will be over.  
I had to share this one because he will be old enough to have a beer!  I asked him to read it because I thought maybe, just maybe, he meant beard.  NOPE!  He said beer, you know the kind that old people get to drink.  I almost busted out laughing! Crazy things that my smarties think!

Click here to check out my packet if your 100th day of school is coming up.

Only 80 more days to go, for me! :-)

Lots of love,


  1. I was wondering what the wall behind the first picture was....Is it a math vocabulary word wall? Where did you get the words for it?

    1. It was my math word wall. The fantastic cards are from Ginger Snaps. The link is below. She has them for other grade levels too, if you don't teach 2nd.
