Thursday was our 100th day of school.. but SURPRISE.. I got a phone call Wednesday night that there was no water at the school due to a broken water line.. so no school on Thursday!
So, change of plans.. Friday will be the 100th day of school.
The door was decorated and ready for my first graders.
Their desk were ready.. balloons and confetti. And a brand new 100th day of school pencil.
A little breakfast.. white powdered donuts and chocolate milk.
It’s official.. we made it to the 100th day!
We guessed or estimated if these containers had 100 items. Yes or No?
Then we had to count each container and find out..
Then we cut out 100 stars to go on the hall bulletin board.
Here is the finished product…
I have no clue why this picture is crooked..
My students had to bring in a 100 item project.. so we shared those..
We read a few 100th day books.
We made two lists charts..
We played a 100th day dime game.. that was a BIG HIT! I have it in my Teachers Pay Teachers store..
Take a look-
I had a prize that cost $1.00. They had to “earn” 10 dimes to buy the prize. We played in teams. So, whichever team earned $1.00 first got the prize.
This was my prize..
Nothing fancy.. and it all came out of my desk drawer. Left over candy, erasers, pencil toppers, bouncy balls, and silly bands.
(There were 3 cups inside the bag because the teams had 3 players.)
The purpose of the game was to put 3 numbers in order to make the largest 3 digit number they could.
But, watch out.. there was special cards that said “Give a dime back.” or “You get an extra dime.” .. etc.. Put a little twist on the game that was fun!
Then we ended the day with 100th day cupcakes and juice!
Whew.. and I slept like a baby Friday night!
