100 Days of First Grade

Thursday, January 28, 2010

Today was Ezekiel's 100th day of first grade, so we had to do a little something to celebrate his achievement.  First, I made him this ribbon.
I got the idea for it in the February 2010 issue of Parents magazine.  It was made by gluing together three different sizes of cupcake liners.  I, then, punched out, with SU's Scallop Circle punch, a computer generated "HAPPY 100th DAY!" and glued it to the very center.  The ribbon was adhered, to the back, with mini glue dots; and a safety pin, for attaching to his shirt, was threaded through the ribbon loop.
This was so fun and easy, that he could've done it himself; but I wanted him to find a little present, with his seatwork papers, when he woke up this morning.  We, also, made "Hundred Day Hash", or so we've come to call it.  It's become a little, 100th day of school tradition for us.
We, literally, raided our cupboards to come up with ten things for our hash and counted out ten of each thing to equal 100 goodies.  This year, we added milk chocolate chips, pretzels, Craisins, marshmallows, Hickory Farms' Mini Mint Melt Aways, walnuts, Cheez-Its, Rice Chex, Cheerios, and raisins.
Yum!  Yum!

I'm off to listen to an A Beka Book (Ezekiel's homeschool curriculum) Webinar presentation.  Have a fabulous day!
