It's Almost The... 100th Day!

Today was day 89, so we are ALMOST at our 100th day of school! Let's flashback to last year and check out how we celebrated our 100th day. Don't forget to read all the way to the bottom to grab a FREEBIE!

Happy Sunday, everyone! Have you had your 100th day of school yet? Ours was on Friday, and we had a BLAST!!! I thought I'd share a recap of our 100th day celebration as well as some changes that I will be making for next year! If you haven't celebrated your 100th day yet, I hope I can give you some great ideas!
My kindergarten team and I stayed late on Thursday night decorating for the 100th day. We hung streamers at the entrance to the hallway so that the whole school could join in on the fun. We also hung streamers in our doorway. I wish you all could have seen the kids' faces when they walked through the streamers! Who knew such a small thing could make them so happy!
We began the day by jumping for 100 seconds! {I am very embarrassed to say that when I woke up on Saturday morning, my calves were KILLING me!} This was a great way to review and reinforce counting to 100.
Then, we started our 100th day stations. I used Cara Carroll's idea of using a punch card for students to keep track of which stations they already went to. I created our own punch cards because we already had some activities that we wanted to include. Students were able to begin wherever they wanted. As they finished an activity, their job was to come and get me so I could 1) take a photo and 2) punch their punch card. This system worked out really well!
Here are some of the stations that we used:
^^  Build a 100 cup structure
 ^^ Dot 100 gumballs
 ^^ Hats with 100 stickers
 ^^ Necklaces with 100 beads
 ^^ Starburst 100 chart
^^ Build a 100 snap cube structure
We also made pictures with 100 pattern blocks and played roll and race to 100! At the end of the day, we enjoyed a 100 piece snack.
Are you ready to celebrate the 100th day of school? Grab this FREE and EDITABLE 100th day punchcard to help your students keep track of the stations they've been to! I like to hole punch them at the top and make them into necklaces so they don't go missing! Click the image below to download now!
