Happy 100th Day of school! We actually celebrated our 100th day on Wednesday so I wanted to share all of our fun. People…100th day=EXHAUSTED. But it was epic fun!
Our 100th day always starts out (of course it does!) with a hat.
We count by 10s to make our hats.
Each ‘stache gets a strip of paper with 10 boxes. We have different stations set up so they can place 10 items on each strip. Then we count by 10 to 100.
We use small stickers (several different kinds) , foam letters, letter stamps, number stamps, fingerprints, mustache stickers, and foam shapes to make our hats.
Then we staple the strips to a sentence strip and we have our 100 day hats.
We did a family project where each ‘stache had to bring in a 100 collection. I’m a huge fan of the 100 pennies on the hat (but the glue…OMG…I might have gotten a little loopy from that glue!). And of course not one, but two ‘staches had a collection of 100 mustaches. DUH!
We did a kindergarten fashion show where we lined the halls and everyone got to work the runway showing off their 100 collection! EPIC FUN! Fashion show=mega fun!
We gave 100 high fives, did 100 jumping jacks and even gave 100 hugs!
We predicted how far 100 steps would take us. We ended up at the stairs!
We did some 100 writing. We wrote 100 words. 10 words. 10 categories. We do this over the course of the day. The ‘staches were so excited to guess what category was next!
We wrote about 100 things we wanted and 100 things we did not want..
We do not want 100 underwear…or 100 teachers…or 100 babies…or 100 stinky socks.
But we do want 100 Mr. Gregs (ummmm imagine a world with 100 of me…ponder that for a moment…)…
My FAVORITE 100th day activity is 100 kisses. I tell the ‘staches that I’m going to give them 100 kisses. I get the “eeew” and “gross” and the giggles. Then I tell them it’s chocolate kisses and they get super excited.
I use dot stickers to label 100 Hershey Kisses from 1-100. I hide them around the classroom. EAch student gets a 100 chart. When they find a kiss, they color the number and place it on our life size 100 chart.
People…..get ready…this year…for the very first time EVER….we found…wait for it…all 100 kisses. TRUE STORY. That has never happened before. Now we won’t have the mystery of the missing kisses…
And of course we had 100 snacks!
Thanks to my awesome teammates for the amazing banner and 100 reasons we love school display!
And don’t worry…I go in on the fun. Of course…
