We celebrated our 100th day two weeks ago with a very special day filled with learning and fun! We began with the hunt for 100 Hershey Kisses.
Next, I organized eight different learning rotations for the students to enjoy. Each student received a passport for the day to help keep track of the activities they completed. The stations included:
Students predicted how many licks it would take to get to the middle of their mini-Tootsie Pop.
Would you believe it took more than 100 licks for most of the students?!
100 chart puzzle
Next up was a custom 100 chart puzzle I created for each student. I differentiated these puzzles by cutting the 100 chart into a certain number of pieces that best met the needs of each student. They LOVED this activity, and I put the puzzles in baggies for students to take home and to use over and over again!
Students made a 100th-day crown. They used stickers to make ten groups of ten. I love how these turned out!
Students used polka dot daubers to make 100 gumballs.
Students linked numbers zero-100 together in order from least to greatest.
Using ten groups of ten different colored pony beads, students made a festive necklace.
But the surprise favorite was building with 100 cups!
Students brought in collections of 100 items. There was a fun variety of collections!
But my favorite 100th-day activity this year was the writing activity and the aged-photo I created to go along with it!
I used the app AgingBooth to make each students’ 100-year-old photo.
I can not believe how quickly the last 100 days have passed…zoom! We celebrated this special milestone ALL day! The morning began with the centenarians arriving at a little slower pace than usual.
When the students entered kindergarten, they were surprised to see (or not see) 100 chocolate kisses hidden around the classroom. Their goal throughout the day was to find these chocolate kisses and match the number written on the bottom to our 100 chart.
Then it was time for our 100th Day Collections parade. Each student in the Lower School collected 100 items to display at their workspace. Look at all these unique ideas!
Next up was a round of eight very special 100th Day-themed centers. (Thank you, Marsha McGuire!)
