Hooray! Hooray! It is the 100th Day!!

Can you believe that we have been in Kindergarten for 100 days? We have been counting each day we have been in school since day #1. Today we tied the 10 groups of 10 paper clips together and celebrated our 100th day of school!

The children entered the classroom under a banner "It's the 100th day!" As they entered the classroom, there were 100 balloons waiting for them. They were so excited! We read 100 day books, made 100th day hats, counted to 100, and even had a 100th day snack.

In the afternoon, we hid 100 Hershey Kisses that were numbered to 1-100 - then hid them in the classroom. When a child found the "kiss", it was put on the 100's chart matching the number that was found. Children decorated hats with 100 stars and they wore shirts with 100 items on them. They wrote what they would buy with $100. One child wrote that she was buying and electric guitar and a diamond ring with her $100! They also drew a picture of what they look like now and what they'll look like at 100 years old. The pictures looked somewhat the same, only in the 100 year old picture, they had a cane.

At the end of the day, we visited "Zero the Hero" and he shared artifacts that were 100 years old. The children left school with their hats, masks, candy, drawings, and balloons. The number 100 has proved to be a memorable and magical one on this 100th day of school!!
