100 Things – A Slice of Life Story

Inspired by  the example of many other Slicers, I decided to see what my 4th graders would do with the 100 Things I’m Thankful for Challenge. I worried there might be groans.Instead, I got kids asking, could they take it  for homework and asking if they could go past 100! I keep saying these stream-of-consciousness impulsive puppies are kind hearted. I worked on my list while they worked on theirs. I walked around a bit to monitor and saw some wonderful things on their papers. rather than listing my 100, I’m going to give a sample of some of the things they came up. I chose on thing from each student’s list.

  • butterflies
  • Girl Scouts
  • hot cocoa
  • Kool Aid
  • smelly markers
  • stuffed animals
  • dictionary
  • brain
  • constellations
  • legos
  • polar bear ear muffs
  • gravy
  • fuzzy pajamas
  • Christmas movies
  • Abraham Lincoln
  • tie-dye shirts
  • electric cars
  • noodles
  • soccer
  • meeting Ken Jennings
  • Roberto Clemente
  • US Navy
  • Minecraft

    Oh my stars! This list is wonderful. I mean how can one NOT be grateful for fuzzy PJs. I’m 51 and that’s still pretty high up on my list. First much-needed smile on my face today.
    Thank you!

    I love their list! I wish I had done that with my 4th graders. Although just because Thanksgiving is over, doesn’t mean we can’t still do it! Their list made me smile. My favorites were Abraham Lincoln, polar bear ear muffs and the U.S Navy.
