Happy 100th Day of School!

For many of you out there, today marks the 100th day of school! You're over the halfway mark! Well done! 

Celebrate with a reading of Jake's 100th Day of School! 

What will Jake do when he forgets to bring the special collection he's going to share at the celebration of the 100th day of school?

I remember scrambling all over the house for the perfect thing to bring when I was a kid no easy task, especially at 7:40 a.m., which was historically when I'd remember that it was the 100th day of school. (Cereal has many uses.) So, good luck out there! I hope you didn't forget like Jake and I did!

Want to win your own copy of Jake's 100th Day of School? Leave a comment with your email address and answer: What did you bring to school for the 100th day? I'll pick a winner on Friday! 

Happy Reading Everyone! And Happy 100th Day of School!

  1. Oh goody! I get to be comment #1. Here goes....

    When I was in school, we didn't celebrate the 100th day of school. But I've worked in schools for over 35 years and I recall the first time ever hearing this and talking with the elementary grade teacher about how she was factoring it into her math lesson for that day. Macaroni elbows or shells, etc. Cheerios. Buttons. Chocolate chips. Tootsie rolls, etc. (kids love the candy to count and eat)

    Since then, I have seen and heard teachers doing lots with this and I think it sounds like a fun way to engage the children in the classroom to focus on numerical items.

  3. I did not have 100th day of school celebration. But I did bring a frog to school one day when I was very young.

    I will have to ask my grandkids about this celebration.


  4. Congratulations! I say you both win! And I think I already have your addresses, so be on the lookout for your copies of Jake's 100th Day of School in the mail soon. Have a great weekend!

  5. Wow! My copy of the book arrived today. Such a cute book. I can hardly wait to write a review and to share it. :) Much appreciation for this opportunity.
