100th Day Cent-sation: Seizing the Day with BIG KIDS
Okay, this is L-A-T-E. I started working on this file months ago, and then life happened. Most recently, time slipped away from me in the midst of report cards and parent-teacher conferences. Ahem, anyway. :) My kiddos always ask about the 100th Day of School, and as a third grade teacher, I always feel super guilty that we don't get to have a whole day of fun. Of course, I also happen to be departmentalized, and I teach Language Arts, so that is a challenge in itself. Then it dawned on me. I realized I could make it work! I just needed to give it a new slant. Enter Latin roots. :) I realized that I could center a few activities around the prefixes cent- and centi- to sneak in a few 100th Day activities to grow their vocabularies! Score!!!! I know this is a little late for a lot of my readers, but if you are interested, you can check it out HERE!
