We made a little 100th Day craftivity to practice our spelling words.
You can have a copy of this pattern by clicking here. (There is also a writing recording sheet option.)
Students completed 100th Day mini books, counting to 100 different ways & 100 words. We started our 100 Words book a couple of days early for morning work and that worked out really well.
Throughout the day we would gather together for 100th Day read alouds. There are so many cute 100th Day books, it is hard to fit them all in.
Students also worked with partners completing a 100th Day center (adding multiples of 10 to get to 100). You can click here if you would like a free copy of this center. The clip art in this center from Melonheadz.
We all made 100th Day t shirts to wear and tell about on the big day. The kids used buttons, stickers, yarn, markers, paint, glitter, and pom poms. They all looked great. My shirt had 100 pictures of my daughter on it. Sweet.
Please excuse the bags under my eyes. I was up late finishing my shirt. :)
We, of course, had to have a little fun with food. We sorted and graphed 100 M & Ms. Not an original idea, but always a hit with the kids.
Finally, check out our door. I saw some cute ideas on Pinterest and thought I'd spruce ours up a bit. The kids loved going in and out of the streamers. I think bathroom break and drink break frequency went up 100% on the 100th Day.
This year was the first time I did not over plan for the 100th Day. Everything went really smoothly, but I was still exhausted at the end of the day. I am extra grateful for a three day weekend. I hope you enjoy yours as well.
