Today we read 100th Day Worries as our book treasure book. Your child should have brought home their envelope, retelling sheet, and a foam smiley face (from my 100 collection).

Here is a fun game that I found on another blog about four years ago, and I’ve been posting it on my blog every year since. It’s called Guess the Number. You pick a number and the computer will guess it, pretty cool!!! If you would like to play the game, just click on the picture below and it will take you to it and you can try it. Try it out and leave a comment here to let me know how you did. I can’t wait to hear!!!
