100th Day Fun!

Today was our 100th day of school......can I just say oh.  my.  word!  It was a great day, but I didn't get to do half the stuff I had planned because everything took twice as long as I anticipated.  Plus, I had 6 kids gone today.  The kiddos were very well-behaved though and had a blast!

 We asked the kids to come to school dressed like they were 100 years old.  I was a little nervous that no one would participate, but look at how cute they are! :)  It just makes my heart melt!  {Do you see the canes?  Walking stick?  Ties?  Suspenders?}


We have been using Kreative in Kinder's Zero the Hero activities since day 10!  The students are always excited to see what treat Zero the Hero will bring to us.  This is what they saw when they came into the room today:



He left us this bag with some super cool treats.  The picture below shows the treat I made.  I made this last year and posted it to my old blog that no longer exists.  I was shocked to find the idea from old blog still floating around on pinterest....ha! :)  It is really easy to make.  Melt white chocolate and pour some onto a wax paper lined baking sheet then add a pretzel stick and two M&M's.


The kiddos were in awe that Zero the Hero made such a cool treat! :)  My daughter even helped me make the treats last night.


We also made necklaces with 100 fruit loops.  I gave each student a 100 chart and then put fruit loops in the middle of the table.  They filled their chart and then started to string them on a piece of yarn.



They had so much fun with this.  I told them they were not allowed to eat any fruit loops while we were making the necklaces and not one person ate one.  I was so impressed especially since we STARTED making these right before lunch! ;)

We also made hats with 100 stickers (10 stickers on 10 strips of construction paper).  Here are some of my little sweeties with their hats and necklaces.


We also did 100 exercises, counting to 100 in different ways, and did some 100 day coloring.  Whenever they finished their work throughout the day, they worked on writing their name 100 times.  I got this idea from Khrys.  You can get yourself a copy {here}.

My children go to school in the same district as me, but are in a different school.  They celebrated 100th day today as well.  Here is a picture of my little princess after school with her 100th day crown.

Thanks for making it to the end of this long post.  I am going to go curl up in bed right now.  Yes I know it isn't even 7:00, but I am starting to get a cold and we start our standardized testing tomorrow so I need my rest!

  1. Love the idea of having the kiddos lay out/count out the fruit loops on a 100s chart first. This is def. making its way on to my ever growing 100th day activities. We celebrate ours the week of Valentine's. Talk about a long week that will be. :)

    1. We have conferences on Valentine's Day which means it will be a half day and then no school Friday. It will be one of those long short weeks. We can make it through though! :)

  6. Omg! I am just loving your "100 year old kinders"! I would not be able to keep a straight face when they all walked in with their canes and suspenders! Adorable! :)

    1. Thanks! I just met with our "yearbook club" which consists of 5th graders today. When we were talking about the candid photos for the yearbook one girl said "Aww....I wish we could have gotten pictures of the kindergarteners dressed like old people to put in there." I just gave her a big, huge smile because of course I got pictures of them!!! :)
