You all know how much I LOVE the 100th day! Well this year was no different. We had TWO days of 100th day fun, all because a snow day pushed the actual 100th day to half day of school. The activities included:
What can you do in 100 seconds- This math activity required students to predict how many times they could do something in 100 seconds. Then they preformed the task and compared their actual answers to their predictions. Some tasks were writing their name, saying the ABC's, and clapping. They had a great time working together to count each others tasks in the 100 seconds!
100th Day Crowns: Students were given different craft materials to create ten strips of ten to make 100 objects hanging from their crowns! Check out the class website this weekend for photos!
If I were 100 Years Old: Students wrote about what their life would be like if they were 100 year old. Then they created self-portraits of themselves at 100. This is one of my favorite writing pieces of the school year because the students are so created and funny with their thoughts about what happens when you are 100.
Pigs In Counting: I read a book called Pigs in Counting about 100 pigs that play hide and seek. Then the students search the classroom for 100 hidden pigs! They worked together to put the pigs together to make a giant 100's chart. I think this may have been many students favorite activity this week!
100th Day Necklaces: Students worked to make necklaces today using different colored beads. The goal was to make a pattern with their beads and use 100 of them, of course!
100's Grid Name Pattern- Students created a color pattern using their name written over and over in a blank hundreds grid.
Students also were expected to make a 100th day project made out of 100 of the same items. Students then presented their projects and explained what they created, how they created it, and why they chose to create it. This years projects were AMAZING! Finally, we had a wonderful turn out of family members coming to our 100th day project showcase! The students just loved showing everyone their hard work!
