100 Days Smarter FREE Craftivity

Our first grade celebration of the 100th day of School is just a few days away.  I think I have too many activities planned.  But better to have too many than too few,  r i g h t ?
Hopefully my sweet students are working on their projects to show and share on that day.  They have to make a 100th Day t-shirts.  If you're not familiar, students can paint, draw, glue, stick, stitch (with help), pin (you get the picture) anything to their shirts to represent 100.  It's always pretty fun to see what they come up with each year.
I wanted to share one activity we will be using during the week leading up to the 100th Day.  Students will be making a little 100th Day cutie to help them practice their spelling words.
If you click on the picture below you can have your own copy of this craftivity for free.
The pattern also includes a recording sheet for a 100th Day writing assignment.
It will be best if you use construction paper colors to match the features of the each student in your class.  I used scrapbook paper for the arms of my samples.  But, plain construction paper will work just as well.  You may also want to play around with the positioning of the arms.  The clip art on the recording sheets is from Melonheadz.
*Please note, this pattern has been updated with legs and feet.  However, you can still make it the same as pictured above even with the updates)
I hope you and your class have a fun day of learning on your 100th Day of School.  Let me know if you have any questions about this project.
Have a great week.
