Happy 100th Day of School!

Seems odd to be saying that in March but yes, today was our 100th day of school....12 snow days plus scheduled breaks will do that to ya!

I was planning on linking up for Monday Made It today but Tara is doing that next week so I'll have to link to this post in that. 

This was hanging up to greet the kiddo's when they came in this morning. I thought it might be annoying to walk through but it was actually kind of fun. The kids did a good job of not being too rough with the actually looked pretty much the same when I took it down today as when I put it up.

The font is KB STRIPED PAJAMAS. It is one of my faves. I actually really love all of her fonts. I need to just bite the bullet and get the package that has all of them!
I made this cute picture frame for them to hold so I could get their picture. I am going to put them on our door to jazz it up a little. I got the idea from all of the first day of school frames that are all over Pinterest.

These are some of the activities that we did. The first idea I got from WHAT THE TEACHER WANTS. It's an estimation activity where kids have to first estimate the amount in each bag and then they count the items to find out how many is in each bag. Then they have to say whether each bag was more or less than 100.
Please ignore the MESSY mailboxes behind this pic. The kiddo's are not always as neat as I would like them to be. :)

You will notice in this picture that my estimation page looks different than the one in 100th day packet on What The Teacher Wants. I wanted to be able to use it for more than 100th day so I whipped up my own.

This group worked together SO well. I loved how they made groups of 10 and then counted.

During Math we did this cute find and graph activity that I found on Pinterest but you can get HERE.

They colored the toppings according to the code and then counted them. When we added them all up there were 100. On the back of the page is the graph.

Then for snack we made our 100th Day Trail Mix. I had students bring in a bag of 100 food items that we mixed together to make one big snack. It was quite tasty!

There you have it, the 100th Day of School...FINALLY! We had an awesome time and it was a great way to start our week!


  1. Wow - 12 snow days! That's CRAZY!

    Looks like your 100th Day celebration was a big hit :)

    Joy in the Journey

    1. Thanks Jessica. I hope they had as much fun as I did. Uh, snow days....I think it is to make up for the fact that we didn't have our first one until the end of January last year. Fingers crossed we have no more!

  2. Looks like you had lots of fun! We've had 12 hurricane days in a year a while back, but not a single snow day, lol. It looks like your week is off to a great start!

    1. I think I will take snow days over hurricane days. That freaks me out! :) Can I just say again how CUTEY-CUTE-CUTE that new font is?! :)
