Happy 100th Day!

Today we celebrated the 100th day of school with lots of fun activities!

After calendar, I always ask students the question of the day.  This gives them a chance to share their ideas and favorites about a lot of different topics.  Then I write one student's answer on the board and we use it to review things like high frequency words, letter identification, capital letters, and end marks.  Our question today was: "If you had 100.00, what would you buy?"  Here is one response.

We read a couple of books today.  Miss Bindergarten is always a favorite.

Usually, I don't give topics for the writing center, but since today was a special day, they had a topic.  Before we broke into centers, we brainstormed a list of ideas for our writing.

Of course we counted to 100 by 1's, 5's, and 10's!  We also did a math sheet of counting by 10's.

Last, we made 100th day headbands.  The clip art is old Carson Dellosa clip art that I have had forever.  We listened to a children's music channel on Pandora while we worked. They loved that and I need to do it more often. 

Hope everyone had a happy 100th day!!
