JAKE'S 100TH DAY OF SCHOOL SUMMARY

It is the 100th day of school and all of the students in Mr. Thompson’s class are bringing in a collection of 100 things. They are very excited because Jake’s Grandma Maggie will be bringing in a very special surprise. Jake is so excited about the 100th day, that he leaves his backpack with his collection of 100 pictures at home. Once on the school bus, Jake sees all of his classmates with their collections and realizes his mistake. Thankfully, the principal Mrs. Wadsworth is there to help. She takes Jake into her office and they work together to make a new collection of 100 things, books!

In class, the students start their 100 day celebration and share their collections. When Grandma Maggie arrives, the students see she has brought a special guest with her. Aunt Lula has come to help celebrate because she is 100 years old. The students make a special 100th day snack and continue to share their collections. When Jake shares his collection of 100 books with the class, his teacher Mr. Thompson gives Jake an idea. Jake decides to take a picture with Grandma Maggie, Aunt Lula, Mrs. Wadsworth and the books. He adds this picture to his collection of 100 pictures, and brings it in to school the next day.
