This is what the kids saw outside our classroom door.
The colorful streamers got lots of "oohs" and "ahhs" from the kids.
I had 100 balloons spread out throughout the classroom. Inside each balloon was an activity or question related to the 100th day. I popped a balloon and then, as a class, we did whatever the paper said. (ex: count by 10s to 100; 90 + 10 = ?; would you rather eat 100 m&m's or 100 watermelons?)
Here's a view of the front of the classroom.
Another view of the side and front of the room.
This is the 100 chart I had on the board. Each time we did one of the activities from the balloon, I colored in a square on the chart.
Here's how it looked towards the end of the day. (We completed 81 of the 100 activities. I have a tendency to "go BIG" a lot. haha!!)
I took everyone's picture outside our door by this sign. That's my son. :)
We had a 100 breakfast. Like I told my friends, there's no such thing as "too much sugar" on the 100th day of school!
We made crazy hats and put together puzzles that I made from copies of a 100 chart.
Here's a picture of some of the kids making their 100 snack. This was THE MOST anticipated activity of the day. I think it's because I asked the whole class for donations to make the snack. The kids wanted to make sure that we had plenty of time to use what they brought in. haha! Our principal even came in to help with the 100 snack and see all the fun we were having on our special day.
We had a blast even though we didn't get through all 100 activities. The kids left at the end of the day with huge smiles on their faces and couldn't wait to tell their parents what we did. I was exhausted to say the least but it was all worth it!
