Kindergarten Fun on the 100th Day of School

We just celebrated our 100th day of school this week!  Throughout the week students brought in their posters with 100 items.  Students only used objects from home such as stickers, q-tips, cotton balls, leaves, magazine cut outs, beads, buttons, etc.  They weren't allowed to buy anything.  They created some really neat pictures.  I wish I had taken snapshots of them, but I completely forgot!  They used their objects to create a flower garden, our classroom, the ocean, a car, a rainbow, etc.    

We also kept track of the minutes that we were in school that day and gave away prizes every 10 minutes.  Each student received a ticket with a number.  I told the kids that every 10 minutes the timer would go off and I would call out 2 numbers.  Students with those numbers would receive a prize of their choice from the treasure chest.  At our 100th minute,  students whose numbers were called were the grand prize winners.  They chose a prize from the treasure chest and got to choose whether to have extra time on the computer or at play centers.

We then made self-portraits of ourselves at 100 years old.

We created 100th day hats.  I like using sentence strips for headbands.  I gave each student 10 strips of paper.  Students had to draw 10 shapes on each strip so that it would all add up to 100.  Then they practiced counting by 10's to 100.

After they counted their shapes by 10's, I stapled the strips together at the top to create a crown.

We worked on our 100th day book.  Students had to put a hundred items in their book.  We rotated to different centers to accomplish this task.  They had so much fun doing this!
