100th Day Fun!

This week was our 100th day of school. I love this school celebration because the kids take so much pride in how far they have come! Our day was a little tight since we had specials that day but we did manage to fit in some fun. This is how we spent some of our day...

We started the day by introducing these cards. OMG! The kiddos LOVED them... Periodically throughout the day I let a kid (chosen at random) tear a card from the ring and read it aloud, then we all did what it said. By the end of they day we had done everything from jumping jacks to high fives (10 things 10 times each!).

If you would like the cards you can get them HERE.

And we needed to make our hats... I know the norm is a 100th day crown, but I love wacky. So instead we made 100th day Crazy Hats! Each kiddo added ten strips with ten squares to their headband to add up to 100.

Can you find the zombie? Oh, first graders...

We also did this book imagining our life if we were 100. Their answers were great!

just in case you can't tell he wrote... Farrari, brother, mom's house
I love this one!
If you would like the book you can get it HERE.

I hope you all have a fun 100th day too! I'll be back soon with some polar bear fun and can you believe that is is almost February... yikes! I'll post some of our valentine to dos soon. Happy Saturday!

I found the zombie! Boys will photo-bomb even in first grade. {sigh}
Your 100th day looked like lots of fun. Mine was last friday. I had one little guy who was convinced that meant it was the last day of school. Ha!
Thanks for sharing!
