It's getting late, so, I'm not going to do tons of explanation...but, I will show you all my pics (which, to me is the best part!;)
So, here was our day~
Our hat with 100 stickers-I LOVE making these hats!! I give each student a set of 10 stickers (ex. bear stickers) and we all stick on 10 bears, then 10 ants-we all stick on 10 ants and talk about how 2 sets of 10 is 20, etc. all the way up to 100!
We made trail mix and everyone added 100 ingredients. First, we compared some of our ingredients. 100 tiny marshmallows, 100 pretzels and 100 cheese-its sure do look different!!!! And we talked about why.
We did Deanna Jump's estimation activity to see which bottle had more, less and equal to 100.
Of course our friend Zero the Hero visited us! He left us a note that said: measure 100 footsteps from your door, then measure 50 more! you will find a special treat! The 100th Day is really neat!!
I made our zero the hero puppet from felt. He sits on a water bottle so that he can stand up:)
Here we are measuring:
Finding our treat!
He left us 100 grand candy bars, stickers, pencils, giant $100 money and a zero the hero pin!
I found this stamp on ebay my first year teaching. Not sure if the seller sells them anymore-but here's his store: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ZERO-HERO-Poetry-100th-Day-TEACHER-RESOURCE-/230735808754?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35b8ed08f2#ht_594wt_932
It's fabulous! I use it on their 10th day work and they get a stamp on their hand every 10th day. I also use it to make these pins. I use a permanent ink pad and stamp it on foam and color it in with a sharpie:) Simple~but the kids LOVE them:)
Our 100 numbers hunt: I hide these little neon dot stickers all around the room. They have the numbers 1-100 written on them with a sharpie.
We stick them on a 100s chart to see if we found them all. We are STILL missing number 66!!!!
Last, but not least, we do this 100 hidden picture listening activity. I read off one number at a time and tell the kiddos what color to color it. If they follow all of the directions, they will have a 100 smiley face at the end.
I found this interactive 100s chart that I projected onto the board so that the it would be easier for some of my kiddos to follow along:)
