Reporting live from South Daytona, Florida.
LUV comin' to you in 'real' time!
This is where I was this morning! Photos downloaded on the same day! Whoohooo!!!

We just couldn't get the logistics to jive for my arrival on their 'exact' hundred-th day party, but my visit to my newest Florida friends coincided 'just' after all the hoopla for the big extravaganza -- in time for me to report live here, to anyone still awaiting their own celebration..... or anyone beginning to plan ahead for NEXT year: LOL. Here's my latest Author-Illustrator School visit and some of the fun that I observed!!
[We can always improve our lesson plans for the future!]

100th Day Bulletin Board of 'Homework' Baggies Filled with 100 Items

Just how brilliant is this?
Homework assignment:
Send home a sandwich baggy with every student.

Have said child return to school with baggie filled with 100 items!!!

This may not be the first time to ever use this idea............
but I would nominate this 100th Day Bulletin Board as one of the best displays,

In the bags from home:
  • silly bands
  • cheetos
  • black eyed peas
  • crayons
  • marshmellows
  • cheerios
  • noodles
  • pennies
  • paper clips
  • goldfish crackers
  • balloons
  • macaroni

Think of all of the amazing discussions: 

Compare + Contrast!!!

The kindergarten 'building' was ALIVE with ideas to convey the 100 concept. You'll have to come back tomorrow for some of their other awesome ideas. I took a TON of pictures, well actually 100+++!!!

Well one more b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l-l-y conveyed cooperative. You know how I LUV cooperation!!!! This does look like something I'd seen earlier on Pinterest. The teachers at South Daytona told me that they've really been inspired by the 'pins' of others. This heart is soooooooo well done.

Now please 'pin' these images to your hearts content -- I promised these 10 amazing kindergarten teachers that you would! Don't you just LUV seeing excellence in action? I know I do!!!

I know that you're proud of me for getting to my "author-school-visits" in plenty of time to document all of the amazing work I see from my travels. I've seriously got a TON of pictures to share with you -- or at least 100+++ -- so be sure to come back tomorrow!!!

****Have you noticed that I am c-r-e-e-p-i-n-g up on my 1000th FB Networked 'follower' count. That will be a party. I'll give you a freezer size bag and you put 1000 do-dahs inside to share: JK {just kidding!} I will have a party though, please help us get there!

YES!!!! I have written and recorded a dittie -- just for the 100th day party! It's an Elvis-style bit of nonsense that includes a lot of counting by 5's and a grand finale of counting by 10's! It's on my fifth recording, "Debbie's Ditties 5: Jump, Jam and Jive."

Therefore I have a Pinterest board for all things 100! Click right here for those ideas!
