100th Day: Survivor Edition & Landforms

I had the best Monday EVER! Yes, I realize that today it Tuesday, but yesterday was so AMAZING I have to tell you about it.

First,  I walked into my room and noticed that a flat screen TV was installed over the weekend. Do you hear the angel chorus singing?  I certainly did!

(super blurry photo, but you get the idea!)

A few minutes later, I was walking to the bathroom to put on my makeup and noticed my coworker going into her classroom.

Umm, seriously??? There was a coat hanger stuck in her jacket.  She didn't feel it in the car, walking across the parking lot, walking up the steps to her classroom.

We almost died we were laughing so hard! I couldn't even put on any eye makeup yesterday.

Of course we had to reenact it to document the silliness! Every time she saw me today she started laughing.

And this was all before 8am!

Yesterday was the 100th day of school.  I pretty much took every idea I could find on my January Pinterest board and made it a rotation for the morning. I did make it a Survivor (I had to explain the TV show) edition of the 100th day. Students had to pull a bandanna out of a bucket to see which "team" they were on. Somehow the 3 BFF's in the class managed to pull the same color bandanna - peeking much??

I bought the bandannas at Hobby Lobby. They were the ONLY thing that was not on sale at Hobby Lobby. They set me back a dollar a piece, but the students really loved the bandannas.

We finally finished up our landform unit last week. I had big plans to have the students make a landform map, but we just ran out of time.

We did use a lot of items from my Landform Mini Unit.

You already saw a picture of the landforms dictionary (there are 2 versions in the unit for you), but the packet also includes:

  • a memory game (3 versions for use, depending on your class)
  • ABC order center
  • I Have, Who Has? game
  • Printables
I have included a freebie printable for you!

  1. Love the landforms mini unit. We started talking about landforms this week and I decided to turn what we are learning into an informational book!
