Our Little Boy will celebrate the 100th day of first grade this week!
Teachers of young children are always looking for a reason to have fun. Simple celebrations of the 100th day of school reward the students for their hard work and makes them excited about school. Usually by day 100 everyone needs a reason to celebrate! 😉
When I taught kindergarten we would ask the children to bring in collections of 100 things. Cereal pieces, toothpicks, pennies, candy, etc…
Mrs. R, Little Boy’s fabulous first grader teacher, gave everyone Super Hero capes to decorate for the 100th day. How fun is that?!
My sweet boy excitedly shoved the instructions at me then spread out his blue cape on the kitchen table. Before I knew what was going on he was happily drawing 100 dashes, dots, and lines. All over the cape.
“Don’t you like it, Mama?”
“Uh. Mmm. Well…”
Thank goodness he is our most easy going child and was more than happy to do something a little bit different. Whew!
A new cape was made from leftover fabric. One super huge letter “J” was painted in the middle.
Ten dots from ten different colors got painted on the letter.
Then it got a little crazy again. But this time I stepped back and let it go.
Yes, there are way more than 100 dots. But Little Boy couldn’t be prouder of his Super Hero’s Cape.
And I couldn’t be prouder of him.
Off he goes to save the world! One day he really will.
I link up with these fun parties!
