Hi there!  I have been teaching since 1997 in a variety of positions.  However, my passion lies within teaching 1st graders.  Everything is so new to them and I get to teach them how to read!  I have been lucky enough to be in my 9th year of teaching first grade.  I am always looking for new methods and resources to use in my classroom.  I offer a variety of products, all at very reasonable prices.  I decided to start publishing the resouces that I make after purchasing so many from others over the last few years.  I thought I might as well give it a whirl!

FREE -- 100th Day of School Writing FREEBIE
Mar

2017

FREE -- 100th Day of School Writing FREEBIE

Students get so excited about the 100th day of school. I usually have my students bring in 100 useful items after they count them out at home. I request things like wiggly eyes, craft sticks, cotton balls, paper clips, stickers, brown paper bags, beads, and the list can go on and on. These items become useful items throughout the school year and students get to practice counting out the items at home.

I also do this writing activity and they simply LOVE it! After being in school for 100 days, students are to tell their favorite thing to do at school. They draw a picture of them doing their favorite thing in the box at the top. It is amazing to see the different thoughts they have about their school day. I love it when they say they like writing in their journal or going to literacy centers, but some are funny and tell that they love going to lunch, recess, and PE. These are always fun to read! I hope you and your students enjoy this writing activity FREEBIE!
