Five for Friday (100th Day of School!)

Today is our hundredth day of school and Pajama day!
This year we made a Zero the Hero puppet on our 100th day of school.  I am selling these for $1.00 on TPT or TN.
The headband template and the badges they are wearing are free here.
I have recently returned from the California Common Core Conference.  The keynote speaker was Donna Whyte (left). I was lucky enough to get to attend one of her sessions involving common core games. I had a very informative session with author Pat Pavelka (below). I learned so much from all my presenters!
We have been working in the classroom with winter activities. I made more imitation snow for students to touch and describe on a bubble map.
We also made a mouse project to accompany the Mice on Ice book.

This video was very good for introducing snow and I wanted to share it with you.  I did replay and explain the key parts of the video to increase student understanding.

Are you planning President's Day activities?
                                                        Hats off to Lincoln!   Hats off to Lincoln!
Grab this freebie from TPT to review addition with Lincoln and his hats.
