Although the first day of school hasn't started yet, here is an idea for down the road. When my Kindergarten class celebrated the 100th day of school, I asked everyone to dress like they were 100 years old. One of the girls wore rollers in her hair, one boy walked with a cane, another child wore glasses, etc. I wore a gray wig, a buttoned down floral night gown, and rolled down knee stockings. This gave a new meaning to "Old School." Most of the other teachers thought I was a visitor. We had a lot of fun!
