The 100th day was a lot of fun! We celebrated the entire day. We were able to make a 100 day necklace with fruit loops, created something with 100 Legos, made a 100 eyed monster, stacked 100 cups, licked a lollipop to see how many licks it took to get to the stick. We also drew what we thought we would look like at 100 and we came up with 100 words for our chart. The class also enjoyed a 100 day snack made out of chocolate chip cookies and a wafer.
