100th day of school

Hello Everyone!
Can you believe it?  We just celebrated the 100th day of our 2011-2012 school year!!  On this day every year I am reminded of all the things I want to do with my VIKs still.  Better get moving!!!
But first lets take time out to truly celebrate this milestone in the year.  Kids were greeted in the morning by a reminder that they were 100 day smarter. You should have seen their eyes as they went through the door! :)
We enjoyed making some 100 day glasses with out third grade book buddies. Cute!! Cute!!
After many other fun classroom activities, it was finally time for our annual schoolwide balloon launch.  Each kiddo at our school is given a balloon with each grade level disignated a certain color of the rainbow! The balloons have tag with our school info.   We all meet outside and as we countdown to 0, we release a beautiful display of color!  This year the temps were chilly and the wind was strong.  We could tell the balloons were going to go far!
After a week, we have already had balloons found in Arkansas and Missouri!  Can't wait to see if anyone finds any of our wonderful orange balloons!!  Happy 100th day everyone!

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into our wonder-filled world!! Check back again soon!
