100th day ideas


UPDATE!!

 
I will email tomorrow - sick tonight. :o(


If you are a first grade teacher the 100th day is well.... { kinda } a BIG deal!  For years we dressed like we were 100.  Now there is a very cute app that ages you to 100.  Several teachers have used this for the 100th day.  It's called aging booth.
 
  
 
I think I've mentioned before that I get bored very EASILY and I like to switch things up.  So one year I celebrated the 101st day of school.  It was when I taught 2nd grade and it was so much fun!  The local paper even came out and did a story on it.
 
 
This is how the kids were greeted with this door and me like this:
 
We had such a blast!  We did rotations: 
1 String 101 cheerios onto a 'dog collar' with a dog registration     ( they had to name themselves )
 
2  Estimation station:  guess how many dog bones were in the container...  ( Scooby graham crackers shaped like bones )
 
3  Color 101 black dots onto a plain white shirt with a sharpie.     { Note went home asking parents to bring in a shirt that could get  { 'ruined'  }
 
4  Take 101 steps and see where you end up at school
 
5  Take a photo in front of our 'dog house'.
 
* We made dog ears and painted their faces like mine above - again with parent permission.
 
 
aren't we 'cute' puppies?!?

Last year I was racking my brain trying to think of something new to try.  When I moved back down to first they were STILL doing the 100 year old thing.  10+ years of that was just too much and like I said before I get BORED!  So this came to me and I made a unit and ran with it.  The kids and parents loved it as well. 
 
 
The girls wore sashes and the boys had shields.  The girls made 100 tally marks on their sashes and the boys on their shields.  They both wore 100 days smarter crowns and took pictures with this frame I made for their memory books.  It was such a FUN day!!!!
 
 
 
If you love this idea you can get it { here }
 
 
However you choose to celebrate ~ make it fun and memorable for your sweet students...Happy 100th day my friends!
 
LEAVE a comment on which one you would want and I will pick one winner for each item Friday night.

  3. Love your creative ideas!!!
    I would love a copy of your 100th day of school - { celebrate in ROYALTY!! } - when responding to me after prayer, my kiddos greet each other as prince and princess - this unit would be a great complement to their greeting. They will be so honored :)
    Thanks and take care

  8. Oh Vicky I absolutely adore both ideas! I love how you mix things up! It's hard to chose but since my family has always called me princess I guess I'd have to go with the Royalty theme! :-)

  9. My kids would live to be a princess and a knight for the day. What a great twist to the 100th day of school. I am going to have to add the 101th day of school to my wish list for something to do next year! They both look great. :)

  10. Our whole school celebrates the 100th day. We all have various activities that we do in our own classrooms, but we always do some type of activity as a school. I would love to have this 100th day set!

  11. Love, Love your ideas! Our school celebrates the 101st day and it is so fun for the kids. To go along with the 100th day of school, I let me kids count collections. They have so much fun counting all the different things. We continue to count all kinds of items throughout the year but on this day I let them bring in a collection from home.

    P.S. I'm giving away my Count It Up! Counting collections packet free to 3 teachers Jan. 31st!

    Thanks again for your neat ideas!

  12. I really enjoyed reading about both ideas...I fell in love with the 101 day idea, so I would LOVE to have your "101st day of school { dalmation fun }" resource. Your 100th day resource looked AMAZING though!

  17. I would be thrilled to win either one, but perhaps the 101st day packet would be fun for switching it up a bit!
