During the winter holiday our fabulous PTA volunteers decorated every door in our school. Well, that gave me an idea for this year's 100th day celebration. I showed them my Pinterest board and asked them to make banners for 14 classrooms. After a few days they came back to me with ideas. They were armed with paper and ready to go. They will be making banners for doors and a huge banner for the front of the school. I can hardly wait for February 1st.
This year to prepare, we will be make hats on the Friday before. We will also be coloring in the numbers for our necklaces. This will give us plenty of time to have fun, fun, fun on Monday.
Last year I made labels for their ziplock bags ahead of time; because you know someone always puts down their bag and then they have no idea where their snack is. You can get a copy of my labels here. I use the Avery 8163 label to print on. All you need to do is just highlight the part that says Name and type in your students' name. You will not be able to change any of the other text on the label. Just change names, print, stick and done.
We make also make a necklace. First they color in the numbers, then cut out the circles. Next, using a ten frame card and some Fruit Loop type cereal they count out ten pieces of cereal, string and add the number 10, then repeat adding the number 20 and so on...
We will be writing our numbers from 1 to 100
We usually end our day with a school tour of all the classrooms that participated in the 100th day project. We have so much fun walking through all the rooms looking at all the creative and unique ways to celebrate our special day.
