100 Days Smarter!
We celebrated the 100th day of school on Thursday. The kids were so excited all week leading up to this momentous day. Earlier in the week we made 100 Day Crowns. They loved wearing their crowns all day long.
The reading comprehension skills of the week were naming the main idea and details, and summarizing. The class did a great job summarizing the events in Lester Laminack's Jake's 100th Day of School.
During math, the students were given the chance to share their collections of 100 items. We had many collections of Legos and pennies, as well as collections of toys, cars, and hair clips!
We made cupcakes with 100 sprinkles. My mom gave me the idea. She teaches kindergarten, too!
I gave the class the writing prompt, If I had one hundred dollars.... It was interesting to read what they would do with one hundred dollars. I copied large $100 bills on green paper and stapled it to the paper with their sentence.
We also made snacks with 100 treats. The kiddos had fun counting ten pieces of ten different snacks. All in all, 100th Day was a success! What did your class do to celebrate the 100th day?
