100th Day of School

Well the 100th day of school has come and gone, and I am finally able to write my post. This year's 100th day of school was a major success. I have "tweaked" my centers over the years so that I can ensure that my students are fully engaged in each activity. Below you will find what special things I did for the students to celebrate the 100th day.

Welcome to the 100th Day of School!

Each student receive a 100th day treat!

Thanks to my mom (who is a nurse) I was able to create these 100th day bracelets using old hospital bracelets. 

Now for some of the fun! Here are pictures of the centers my students participated in. It was truly amazing focused they were at each center. Each center was 20 minutes.

 100th Day Snack
Each student counted 10 piece of snack and placed them in a each circle. Once they reached 100 they poured the snack into their Ziploc bag. They were allowed to repeat this as many times as they could within the 20 minutes.

 100 Cup Tower
The students were given 100 cups to create whatever kind of tower they wished.

Write 100 Words

The students searched around the room to find as many words as they could within 20 minutes. Some students actually got pretty close to 100.

Graphing 100 M&Ms

The students were given a bag of 100 M&Ms. They had to sort them by color on their sorting mat. Then they had to create the graph based on their data. On the back of their graphing sheet, they answer questions about their graph. If they finished early, they surveyed other students in the class as to what is their favorite color of M&M. They then could create a graph based off of their survey.

Flip a Penny 100 Times

The students flipped a penny 100 times. Each time they flipped the penny they recorded their results. If the penny landed on red they colored the square red. If it landed on blue they colored the square blue. They really enjoyed this center.

The students truly had an awesome day. They said, "this is the best day of school ever!" I know I hear this several times throughout the year but it never gets old. The 100th day of school is definitely a lot of work but it is so worth it.

Thanks Holly! Blogging has been fun so far. I have so many ideas that I can post, but it is just a matter of finding the time. School has been so busy lately. Hopefully I will have some more time over spring break. Thanks for visiting!
