Hoping for snow
Patiently waiting
and hoping for snow in 2015.

300 FREE 100th Day of School celebration ideas!
What is the 100th Day of School? 
It’s a fun way to teach basic math concepts to children including counting, sorting, measuring, sequencing, graphing, classifying, etc. It’s celebrated at many different grade levels, but most commonly in grades K-2. Anticipation builds from the very first day as classrooms count each day they attend school, one by one, until they reach the 100th day. Then it's time to celebrate!
by Angela Shelf Medearis, illustrated by Joan Holub.
