100th Day Ideas to Remember
We celebrated our 100th day of Kindergarten last week and had lots of special activities to celebrate the event. This year I want to keep a list of the ideas that I liked best so that I can remember it the following year!
*My fabulous teacher friend shared 100s day crowns and a parent donated 100s day stickers!
*During center time in the morning, kids worked on making symmetrical 100s day glasses. Other center choices included: making the number 100 with snacks, filling up a 100s chart by rolling a die and then coloring the matching number of boxes, putting together 100 chart puzzles, putting together mini-books where kids can practice writing 100 in different languages, a 100 coloring page and dot-to-dot page.
*During Writing time, kids worked on writing a list of 100 THINGS I LIKE. There were 100 boxes for them to number, draw a picture, and write the words. Sent it home for kids to keep working on over the break as homework!
*During afternoon centers, kids got to play RACE to 100, where they roll a die to get pennies, then exchange 10 pennies for a dime, then 10 dimes for a (fake) dollar bill that they can keep forever.
*We had plans to do more large group 100 day activities (different things to do in 100 seconds) but ran out of time. Maybe next year...
