Hip! Hip! Hooray! It's the 100th Day!!

We are officially 100 days smarter in room 4! We had our 100th day celebration last Tuesday. And we have been out for snow ever since! 
I wanted to pop in today and share with you all about our 100th day celebration! 
I made 100th day cupcakes the night... it's become a tradition! :) That morning before my sweeties arrived, I hung balloons all around the room. Each balloon was filled with a 100 day activity. Throughout the day we would pick a balloon to pop and do the activity inside.... 100 jumping jacks, 100 second dance session, count to 100 by 1's, 2's, 5's, and 10's, I wish I had 100, I would not want 100, 100 high fives, etc. This is always a big hit and also another 100th day tradition!

100th Day Shirts
A couple weeks ago I sent home a note explaining that our 100th day celebration was set and asked students to make a 100th day themed t-shirt if they would like. Here are what some of my cuties came up with! They did a great job!

100th Day Mystery Bags
I sent home brown paper sacks along with a note explaining the 100th day mystery bag project and a paper for them to write down their clues. For this project, students filled their sack with 100 items and then wrote down 3 clues about their mystery item. Each student got up and shared their clues and we tried to guess what their 100th day mystery item was. This is a great project because it gives students a chance to hit some of the speaking/listening common core standards. Some items included macaroni, stickers, marshmallows, chocolate chips, marbles, and candy hearts

100 Day Stations
I set up my 100th day stations again this year. I have 8 stations and I put my kids in groups of 2 and they rotated station to station until they have done all 8. They each had a 100th day sticker chart and would add a sticker to their chart when they visited each station.

100th Day Trail Mix Station... Students counted out 10 of each snack (10 different snacks) for a total of 100 items for their trail mix. They did wrote about their tasty snack.
Race to 100 Station... Students took turns rolling a die and would color in spaces for the amount they rolled. The first student to make it to 100 was the winner! :)
100 Legos Creation Station... Students built a creation with 100 Legos and then drew a picture/wrote about their creation.
100th Day Kid Crafitivty... Students made this cute little craft at this station. 
100th Day Questionnaire...Here students wrote about their favorite lunch, their best friends, 3 things they have learned so far this year, and their favorite memory. Talk about melting my heart... one little sweetie wrote that I was her best friend! LOVE!
100th Day Tower... Here students built a tower with 100 plastic cups... I think this was their favorite station! :)
100 Piece Puzzle Station... Students put together a 100 piece puzzle.
100th Day Tangram Creation... students used Tangrams to build a creation and then they drew/wrote about their creation.
