Is it really possible that the 100th day of school is just right around the corner?? Ours is next Thursday, the 24th, and it seems hard to believe.
Well, I say that, but it's been raining non-stop for 4 full days, which means no recess...which means crazy kiddos...which means I may or may not have a slight case of the grumps. I know these babies just need to get outside and play but WOW, have they been wide open this week. So, to tell the truth, it DOES feel like the 100th day of school should be here...or maybe the 180th?? If it wasn't so cold, I'd swear it was the end of the year! Right now, we're under a Winter Storm Watch here in GA, but I have yet to see one little white flake. :(
Anyway, the past few years, this day has come & gone with a few fun activities, but this year, I decided to make a week out of it and plan the 100th day to be full of fun stuff to do.
I've been doing a lot of research (or, more specifically, I've been spending countless hours on Pinterest) trying to come up with some stuff, and I thought I'd share the best things out there with YOU! :)
Teachers are so creative & I just love reading and seeing what everyone comes up with! Here are some of my favorites. Click the pictures to take you to the post.
Joyful Learning in KC had this great idea of having the kids build something using 100 cups. How much fun! My kids will go crazy over this!
Cindy @ For the Love of Kindergarten did this last year & I love the way it turned out. Also, loved how it makes kids group into tens to make 100.
She also made these. I'm in LOVE with how precious these are !
Miss Renee' made this for the doorway to her class. What a cool way to start the day !
Kinder Kim's nephew made these for the 100th day & I think they are awesome. So much better than the plain ole' 100 hats I've been making...
Buzzing About Second Grade made these super cute creations with the number 100 using die-cuts. How creative!!!
And lastly, everyone loves a good snack (even if Weight Watchers is keeping me from the ones I really love...arrghhh!). The Pixie Chicks have come up with this great idea & letter to send home for the supplies. Plus, there's many more fabulous ideas on their site.
So, for those of you that don't Pin (what??!?!), I wanted to share all these great ideas that are out there. I've been making my plans for next week, and can't wait to include these in there.
On the 100th day, I'm doing a full day (almost) of centers. 10 centers, plus a snack time, that the kids will rotate freely through. They can do them at their own pace & in whatever order they choose, but they have to do all of them. I hope it will be a big hit. After all these days inside, I think the deserve a fun day.
Here's my center check list if you would like it :)
Also, we'll be making the 100 Things Book (something I've done for years & the kids really enjoy) & if you want a copy of that, here you go! Nothing too fancy, but a good go-to for an easy activity.
I have no clue how to make a "linky", but if you are posting some of your ideas, please leave your link in the comments for us all to see :)
Happy Friday (almost!). OH! I forgot - those of you that asked about my Weight Watchers stuff. I weighed in for the first time tonight and lost FOUR LBS! Woo hoo! I would love to celebrate with a brownie or something, but that's how I got here, so looks like an apple for me :)
