Teaching Tuesdays - 100th Day of School

We hit the 100th day of school recently.  Unlike when I taught in a brick and motor school, we weren't exact on our date - we celebrated the week of . .but we did it on Friday.  The boys had a lot of fun and, for once, I didn't try to plan weeks in advance, I actually pulled this all together the night before.  I found all of the printouts I used on "Teacher's Pay Teachers". 

 We started our morning by making our 100 Day treat trays.  I put the papers together and then we gathered 10 different snacks and they had to count out 10 of each.  We had skittles, teddy grahams, pretzels, crackers and more. 

 100 snacks looks like a lot!

 Josh and his 100 days smarter hat.
 Nate and his hat!
 Once their hats were done, they rolled sight word dice and had to fill up 100 squares with sight words.
 We then made "Smarties" and wrote what they had learned in the last 100 days. 
 Nate's "smartie". 
 Josh and his "100 things" book. 
 This was my favorite idea I saw and the boys did nothing with it HA!  I cut out a 1, 0, and 0 and they were supposed to turn the 100 into some creature.  I got nothing.  Josh made a 100. 
 Working on his 100 packat.

 We made giant ice cream cones!
 Nate's 100 thing book.
And, again, Nate made a . . .100. 

We had an awesome time.  This is what I miss about traditional homeschooling - getting to plan lots of fun things around our theme.  I guess I just need to be more intentional about doing some themes and spending a Friday morning doing fun activities.
