Monkey on a Stick Freebie!

It’s almost time for a 100 day celebration. I think. I’m not sure because I haven’t kept track. Is that bad? I just think calendar time takes TOOOO much time. So my calendar time consists of asking the kiddos what day it is. Having them point to the date to me when they’re not sure, and having them write it in numerical form, and word form. And then we’re done And we have time to read. And write. And do math, science, social studies, etc. But I have seen all the blog posts about the 100th day so I’ll bet it is close. So I made this.

When my kids take their reading homework home I always tell them to read it to mom or dad once or twice, then read it to whoever will listen- their brother, their sister, their dog or cat, their great Aunt Edna, or even their pet monkey. They always get a kick out of the pet monkey so I decided to make a 100 word list they can read to their pet monkey. I’m going to print the monkey on the card stock and give them a wide craft stick to glue it to make a monkey on a stickkinda like a Jalapeño on a steeek. Ok sorry couldn't help it too funny to pass up.
Happy 100 day whenever it is! 



  1. Teachers in our building can never agree on when the 100th day is. That scares me a little!
    Thanks for the freebie.

  2. I knew you were "good people" (as my granny would say) the first time I read your blog!!! In real life, we would so be friends!!! :) I don't keep up with the days either! LOL! Our morning routine is all about place value, time, money, skip counting, and multiplication arrays--all random number generated. I get too bored with the add a penny, add a straw routine. I'm so glad our administration doesn't require that (or at least I don't think they do)!!!!

  3. Ha Ha Lisa I think I would like your granny as much as I like you!

  4. My 100th day keeps changing from snow days!! So I don't really know what day it will be!

  5. I love that someone else feels the same way I do about calendar. I tried to do all the calendar "stuff", but after Christmas, we've barely looked at the calendar. I'm definitely starting simpler next year.


  6. These are so cute!!! I just found your blog on First Grade Delight and it is too cute! Have a great weekend :)
