We finally made it to day 100! Thanks to a few snow days, it took a little longer to get there! It was quite the hectic day. It was our 100th day, one of the Superintendent candidates was visiting our school and we had our rehearsal for the Black History Month performance. We celebrated today by making these adorable 100 Days of School hat from The Mailbox:
This is my sample, that's why there are a MILLION staples in it! Once we finished this, we did our calendar routine where we put the last apple on our 100 Days tree and we counted all the way to 100 by ones, fives and tens. After, we completed a short beginning sounds worksheet. Before we knew it, it was time to rehearse our song for the Black History performance. We are teaming up with the other four Kinder classes and singing "Freedom, Freedom". It was so cute to see them all together!
After lunch we continued our 100th day activities. My volunteer read them a book about a centipede and his 100 shoes. The title is escaping me....We then gave each table a manipulative bucket. We had 5 students at each table (luckily 2 Kinders were out!) and instructed each of them to count out 20 pieces. Once everyone at the table completed that task we put each group of twenty into the middle of the table to see what 100 looked like. We then put them into groups of 10 so we could count by ten and then further divided them into groups of 5. After that was complete we did a 100 coloring sheet. The day completely flew by...At the end of the day I took down our 100 Days tree and started the brainstorm what would go there next. I'll save that for my next post!
