Wednesday WOW 2/12/14

I'm joining Em @ Curious Firsties for her weekly linky Wednesday WOW.

Wow, it was 48 and sunny today, after the last couple of weeks it felt like a summer day. We were finally able to take the firsties out for recess. It was wonderful!

With all of the days off, we just now hit our 100th day of school on Monday. since we have gotten so off track from snow days, I kind of did a condensed version a 100's Day Celebration. One thing that turned out even better than I expected was "100 Word Search". The boys and girls worked with a partner. They walked around the room in search of 100 words that they could read. They loved this activity and I was pleasantly surprised that it didn't get too loud. I loved watching how engaged they all were in the activity. Here are a few pictures  I took:

I have one more WOW, isn't it cool how the internet/technology brings people so much closer. I got an email from a principal in a school in Cambodia. She had seen my "My Little Pony" sight word game on Pinterest and was wanting a copy of it to help one of her students that loved My Little Pony. I know I have personally asked several of you for advice, help, etc... and you have always graciously and generously helped me out. I'm glad I was able to her out.

Pin It!


  1. That's a fun idea. I pretty much let our 100 day just pass by - but this would be easy and fun. Enjoy your warmer weather! Sara

  2. Sara, I think I'm going to keep it simple again next year. I saw a great idea from Jennifer @ . She had some great math projects for groups. I think I'll do the 100 word thing and her projects. I don't know what it is like in Kansas, but it was in the 60's the last couple of days!

  3. Oh my goodness Kelly!! That is so exciting that someone contacted you about a lesson. What a great feeling that is. My little one loves "My Little Pony" and I don't understand. We don't watch the show or anything and somehow her little brain knows the names of all of them. Crazy! Thanks for linking up. I was a little behind on my reading.

  4. We had a couple of My Little Pony dvds. I watched them with Delaney and I guess I wasn't paying attention, she would know everyone by name and I couldn't have told you one! haha I feel like I live my life behind. I haven't sat and read blogs at all since the beginning of the year. :(

  5. Great activities! Our 100 day is Monday. Looking forward to it!

  6. Hi Barb,
    Hope you have a great day!!!
