The 100th Day


We started our hundredth day by visualizing what we would look like if we were 100 years old.  The students then drew pictures of themselves.  Student used walkers, canes, facial hair, white/grey hair, glasses, and many other ways to illustrate their old age.  They had fun showing me and their classmates.  Then we got out of our seat and moved by doing 100 exercises.

  • 10 sit ups
  • 10 jumps
  • 10 toe touches
  • 10 pushups
  • 10 shoulder shrugs
  • 10 windmills (Coach Griffith got them into this)
  • 10 jumps on 1 leg
  • 10 stretches
  • 10 jumping jacks
  • 10 wiggles to the ground

Then we worked on writing 100 words we knew.  We only got to 51 because it was a long activity.  The students loved calling out words they knew and writing them on their papers. 

We then sat on the circle rug for 100 seconds of silence.  It sound strange to be that silent with all my little ones in front of me but they did it.  1 minutes and 40 seconds of silence.  We then read “100th Day Worries”  It was about a little girl who had to collect 100 things at home for homework.  They students made many connections to her dilemma from having to do it for their homework as well.  After the story the students filled out a 100 charts and colored in the "tens .“

At this point the student were complaining from how hard I was making them work and since I didn’t want them to say we had no fun on the hundredth day.  I had the students group up and do 100 piece puzzles.  They were so excited.  


We then went to lunch and left the puzzles to finish up when we got back.  While the student were finishing up their puzzle they student came up and put together their hundredth day trail mix.  They thought the counter filled with goodies was the most beautiful thing they had ever seen. 


Once they finished up their puzzles we took a break to munch on our 100th day trail mix.  When they got our our 100 items we brought from home.  Students used mats, their table, and some the floor to divide their items into groups of 10.  After they had to go back and check their work they were glad we could count by 10’s and 100’s in stead of by 1’s.


We then began working on our chain links for 50 things we have learned this year.  We are going to link our 50 with Mrs. Inman’s classes 50 to make 100 things.  The students shared many things they learned such as: addition, how to read to self, air, subtracting, reading, matter and many more. 

We had a fantastic day of fun and learning.  Thanks to all families that helped your child find 100 things at home.  I also appreciate all who sent in food for our 100th day trail mix!
