Other things we did at this year’s 100th Day Celebration:
*Show and Tell our Collections of 100*
*Put 100 sea creature stickers on an ocean poster*
(we’re studying Swimming creatures in science)
*Put 100 toppings on a large paper pizza*
(20 of each: peppers, anchovies, pepperoni, mushrooms & basil, plus 100 pieces of shredded cheese!)*
*Measure out 100 feet in the gym where our co-op meets and take turns kicking balls 100 feet, racing 100 feet, etc*
During Class–*We also had every child complete a 100th day of school packet*
The activities for the packet included:
–Filling out a blank 100’s chart
–Writing their name as many times as possible in 100 seconds.
–Estimating which 2 jars of candy (of out of 5) had exactly 100 items in them.
–Creating two self-portraits-one current, and one as a 100 year old person.
–Counting to 100 by 1s, 5s, 10s, 20s and 25s (numerous times).
–Answering Our 100th Day of School Questionnaire.
What a riot to hear what the kids came up with.
A couple examples for you:
I wish I had 100..._________
(“candy rooms” “cars” “juice pops”) =]
I would NOT want 100…_______
(#1 best answer: “Moose heads staring at me when I wake up in the morning” #2 “Old men in my house”) HA! Kids are too funny.
We also had them answer the question, “I know I’m 100 days smarter than I was at the beginning of the year because now I….” __________________________
Favorite answers: “can read” “can write in cursive” “can do math better” “can build legos better”
Pretty cool if you ask me. Our kids have come a long way, and it’s great to be able to celebrate these huge milestones.
We had a 100th day themed lunch, and those 100s were turning up everywhere on the kids’ plates.
The mamas all had a great time too, and shhhh, don’t tell, but one of my personal favorite reasons for celebrating the 100th day of school as a homeschool teacher is knowing that we are past our half-way point in the school year, and only have about 80 school days left before summer break! =]
