My Town Tutors is a website that connects parents with teachers who tutor. If you are a teacher who tutors, for a limited time, you can register for using promo code: usteachers. Teachers set the hourly and keep 100% of the fees! One of our teachers made $5,000 last year tutoring.
It is FREE for parents to search for a teacher in their area. Please help us find ONE MORE teacher who tutors!
Throughout the school year there are some common and not so common days to celebrate in your classroom with your students. This blog, like many of our blogs is a work in progress.
Our goal is to list and provide resources for special days that teachers can celebrate in your classroom. If you know of any days we are missing, please comment below and we will be sure to add the day. We also welcome guest blogs about days and lessons.
We will list the special days by month. Some days like the 100th day of school will be celebrated on different days depending on the start of the school year. These days are for the year 2013.
We hope you enjoy!

We celebrate our 100th day of school on Wednesday, February 6, (unless we have a snow day). We will be celebrating this day with many activities involving concepts if zero, tens and of course 100.
Each child should do one or both of the following:
- Each child should bring in a collection of 100 things. (I will have 100 pennies.)
- Bring in something about 100 years old.
