100th day of school

Oh what fun today was at school for the 100th day!  I'm exhausted though...for some reason the 100th day is much more difficult with 30 than it ever was with 20 ~ go figure!
Anywho when they walked in the door they saw this:

I gave you that sneak peek yesterday -- this is how we looked.  * The girls were princesses ~ We made a crown, the girls had a sash

they put 100 tally marks on their sash.  We also made a cheerios necklace and had a crown badge in the center.
 They boys were knights - they made crowns, necklaces and shields.  They put 100 tally marks on their shields.

The boys loved their shields so much.  I attached a piece of paper in the back with a loop so they could wear their shield on their wrist.

{ Here I am with my 5th grade son } As you can see I blinged myself out a bit..with a sequin tank, tiara and blingy jewelry - I don't need much of an excuse to put on one of my big cocktail rings. :o)

I had a last minute snack idea that I let them enjoy ~ just so simple but they liked it.
a pretzel stick and 2 gummy lifesavers to spell out 100.  Of course there's always one goofball  silly, creative first grader that will turn something simple into ....weights?!!? LOL

We also took 100 steps and wrote about where we ended up, we found out how many times we could write our name in 100 seconds.  They couldn't believe I did it 49 times.  We didn't get to drawing ourself at 100 and writing about that - that will have to wait until tomorrow along with our kingdom page - I would want 100 ___________ in our kingdom but I wouldn't want ___________ in our kingdom.  As you can see everything centered around royalty/our kingdom/etc.
It was a blast!  If you are stuck and want to try something new grab this super fun unit - you won't be disappointed!  If you are interested you can grab this pack : here
