A Peek into the 100th Day of School: Freebies

We began the day with the “collection of 100” each student brought to school.  I put out a large black construction paper for each student to display their collection.  I like using black as it really showcases the collection.  I used to have the children glue down their collections in groups of ten.  But now I find it more interesting to see how the displays vary child to child – grouped by object, sorted by size and color.  They spent a lot of time setting up their display.  I tell them it is a “Museum of 100 Collections.”

Next each student fills out a Collections Review sheet.   FREE DOWNLOAD click here!

I loved how intensely they analyzed and qualified each collection.

The room was buzzing with deep reflective thinking!

One of my favorite activities is the 100 Transformation (Download HERE).  I love to see what they come up with!  You can die cut 100 for them or I prefer letting them write it:

SNACK:  Snack is always a blast as each child receives a huge plastic cup full of 10 snack items.  I like to use a clear cup so they can see the “collection” of snack items.  This is the safest way I have found to give the children their snack collections without fear of mass germ shares.  🙂

EATING SNACK: The requirement is that they have to fill their 100’s board with 100 pieces of their snack.  When they accomplish that – they can eat the snack:

WRITING : Finally, I love this old time writing prompt (I also like giving them a fake 100 dollar bill to glue to the page.  They love the fake money!).  Download here!
