In this, our first year of homeschooling, I am making plans to celebrate our 100th day of school, which falls on Friday. I’m excited that we’ve been enjoying homeschooling and have made it this far!
Here are some of the activities I’m planning.
- Do a physical activity (jumping jacks, running in place, hopping, etc.) for 100 seconds.
- Put together a 100-piece puzzle.
- Thread 100 pieces of O-shaped cereal on a piece of string and wear as a necklace (and use as an instant morning snack :).
- Fill three small jars with mini chocolate chips and let them choose which jar they think contains exactly 100.
- Using an advertising flyer from the Sunday paper, make a list of items you could buy with $100. (I will have my 5th grader calculate tax and include that as part of the total.)
- Research what happened on this day in history 100 years ago.
- Write the number 100 on a piece of paper and incorporate it into a drawing.
- See how many times you can bounce a ball in 100 seconds.
- Write a paragraph on the following subject: If I could, I would have a collection of 100 ______
- Glue 100 sunflower seeds to a piece of cardboard. (Admittedly, this is to use up a half bag of sunflower seeds we have in the pantry!)
- Make a chain of 100 paper links and string across the “schoolroom.”
- See how quickly you can answer 100 math facts (using flashcards).
Have you ever celebrated the 100th day of school?
