100th Day of School

It’s hard to believe that tomorrow is already our 100th day of school. 

It’s become tradition to have this little snack waiting for the kids on their desks when they arrive.

Here are a few of the other things we will be doing in our classrooms . . .

The kids will all get to flip a coin 100 times and record if they got heads or tails AND roll a dice 100 times and record what number they roll each time. Then they can color code each turn and create a math problem that should equal 100. It’s fun to get out the calculators to let them check their work!!!

Each kiddos will also get to make their own book about the number 100. On each page they have to finish the sentence to tell about 100 things they could lift, 100 things they would like to eat, 100 things they would not like to eat, what they would do with $100, what they wished they could have 100 of and what they would never want to have 100 of. There is also space for illustrations on each page.

One of our favorite books to read on the 100th Day of School is I’ll Teach My Dog 100 Words by Michael Frith. After we read the book the kids will all make a book about 100 words they can read and write. They are always shocked to see that they know so many words!!!

We will also be reading The Wolf’s Chicken Stew by Keiko Kasza and making a 100th Day “snack mix” stew to munch on throughout the day.
