Welcome to the 100th day of school! My kids arrived to our door all decked out to begin our special "celebration" day! You could literally see their faces light up. I just LOVE the 100th day of school!
Look at this next doorway!! I'd love to claim that it was my idea....but a couple of my teammates' doors meet together and they put this adorable doorway together. The top banner is from a rock start theme our school did a couple years ago. The kids walked through like they were Super Stars! It really stood out!
And another teammate's door (I love her 100 sign:0)
And as they entered the classroom, this is what they saw. You should have seen their faces.... My favorite 100th day activity is the 100 balloon pop - it's a great activity because:
*It's also a great way for kids to see exactly how many 100 is.
And the party ensued! :0)
After the balloon pop, we did our calendar and "discovered" that we were at the 100th day of school! (Of course the kids knew, but they wanted to make sure I knew :0) Zero the Hero left a note that told us we had a surprise waiting for us in 100 steps from our classroom door so.....of course we had to go check it out! We all took turns in laying down the paper feet so we could measure exactly 100 feet.
Wow! And this isn' t the whole 100 feet....Pretty amazing!
I got so excited I forgot to take a picture of our surprise. It was Zero the Hero and Zerona in a basket with our 100th day certificates, bookmarks, and stickers! Dog-gone my forgetful brain! I wished I had a picture to share :0( The certificates are the same ones as the FREEBIE at the bottom of this post!
What's the 100th day without a 100th day crown?! I got these last year at Target in the dollar section...super easy and the kids thought they were in heaven using markers to color them (we aren't allowed to do that often :0) To me it was TONS easier than doing the "silly groups of 10 hats" we've done in the past. Plus, we did lots of other "groups of 10 counting".
The finished product! The kids were so cute....They went to writer's workshop as soon as they were finished with their necklaces. I'd look over at kids writing all over the place with their necklaces hanging out of their mouths munching. :0) So sweet!.....Ok kind of icky, but totally cute!
Here is the trail mix that we made. We had 10 different snacks to make our trail mix:
*Fruit Loops (yep more fruit loops :0)
Kids got to count out 10 of each snack - for a total of 100! They had such a ball you would never have guessed they were doing math work! :0)
Oh, and we also made the 100th day flags from my Hooray for 100 Days pack. If you are looking for a 100th day pack - I'd love for you to take a look at mine! It is packed with ideas, templates, certificates, badges, and letters....so much!
