100th Day!!

We celebrated our 100th day of school back in early March. We spent the day enjoying 100th Day Mini Olympic, special arts & crafts, and treats. This was one of our most fun school days! Here are some photos we took to capture what we did that day. Enjoy!

100 Necklace: We used colored cereal and placed them in groups of 10, in repeating patterns. Great math activity and great for eye-hand coordination..... and yummy too!

Finished products. They're also enjoying a special treat, See's suckers. Very special!

100 Number Paint: The kiddos chose to use dot paint. :)

100 Name Chart: The older kiddos wrote the letters of their name repeatedly, filling 100 squares. Then they colored each letter, using diff. colors to create a pretty pattern at the end.

100 Activities: We played a variety of games, some indoors and some outdoors.
Dance to music for 100 seconds, then freeze for 100 seconds.

Well, in our case, "freeze" meant to collapse and fall to the floor and laugh! Such funny kids!
We really could have done this dancing activity all day. They so loved this one & I too was laughing my head off.... They sure love to get jiggy with it, but it's important to always end it on a high note! So, we moved on to something else.
100 Seconds:
Close your eyes & silently count up to 100 seconds. When you think it's been 100 seconds, open your eyes.

100 Hops

100 second run (we also did estimating 100 steps).

At the end of our mini-olympics, the children received a ribbon for each of the activity they completed, and a medal of overall excellence in completing 100 days of school. We then enjoyed a special 100th Day lunch.
