100th Day

We have been counting up to the hundredth day of school and it fell this past Monday.

We had a good time celebrating. First of all since the beginning of the school year, every day we have added a unifix cube for every school day. I (or they) wrote on each one with a Vis-A-Vis marker - the date on one side and the ordinal # on another.

Here is more of a bird's eye view:

My mother numbered the backs of a 100 piece puzzle so that they could put one piece in a day. That was a lovely something for them to argue over who got to put the puzzle piece in. Little tidbit of advice - if you have 2 2 puzzles. She asked me and I said no due to storage issues. Two puzzles are worth the storage concerns, let me tell you.
I have no idea WHO Ms. Meecham is, but she is a blessing to us! We found these little books on her site.

I told Ms. Priss that she must lose her eyesight somewhere before 108 years of age because she apparently can't see to put her lipstick on too well.

Thanks to Marcy Cook for this brilliant little idea. 100 pieces of snack mix. Actually this is how I dole out all of their snacks. Doesn't everyone use this little grid and ration snacks out precisely?!? Reminds me of that SNL skit where Phil Hartman (God rest his soul) as the anal chef chops and disposes of the "refuse".

100 pieces of snack mix don't last long.

Here is a 100 castle. Each block has a number sticker on it and they had to build something to add up to 100.

100 steps across the yard. Not quite what they estimated.

Here is some more of the workbox magic.

Whew, this is the last activity for the day - 100 necklaces. There are 10 sets of 10 cheerios, Each set is seperated by a large circle (punch) of cardstock with a hole punched in the middle. They liked these even more than the hundred snack, I do believe. Glad I decided to go ahead and do that one. I just slipped it into their last workbox drawer.

Until next year....

Great ideas! We just celebrated our 100th last Wednesday. I wish it had come after your post so I could have stolen some of your ideas!
