100th Day of School Celebrations

Hi Friends! 
As we creep up on the 100th Day of School,
 I can't help but reflect on how far my sweet kindergarteners have come since the beginning of the year! They've grown up in the blink of an eye and evolved into these confident, little learners. My heart is always full thinking about their progress up until this point... so obviously we must celebrate BIG! 
So lets just throw it out there...
The 100th day of school is a BIG day in elementary school...especially in kindergarten!
We make a BIG deal out of this day.
Do we do anything too crazy? 
Well not "too" crazy.

Over the past few years I've tried a lot of different activities on the 100th day of school.
We've:
-Had 100th day snacks
- Completed 100 exercises
-Wrote 100 words
-Sorted and counted 100 objects
-Made 100th day crowns
-Made 100th day necklaces
**You name it, we've probably done it! 
BUT..
Here are my Top 3 ABSOLUTE favorites! 
(oh and there is a FREEBIE in there too!)

1. The Photo Booth App
If you don't already have the Aging Booth app, you need to get it right NOW! 
It's 100% FREE! 
You can take pictures of your students on 100th day and upload them on the app right away to show them what they will look like when they are 100 years old.
 OR 
If you already have 1,000 pics of your kids on your phone, you can upload them and print them out ahead of time! You can have them waiting for the kids on the 100th day! 
WARNING:
You may not be able to handle the laughter!
It's just too much!! :) 


2. Dress Up Like You're 100! 
Can I just say, that there is nothing cuter than a class full of 5 and 6 year olds dressed up like old men and women!  The glasses, the salt and pepper hair, the clothing, the pearls! 
I literally can't!! 


3. Creative Writing
No matter what you choose to do to celebrate PLEASE make sure that your students do some sort of creative writing prompt on the 100th day of school.  I like to have my kids write about when they are 100 years old. The things they come up with are priceless! 
The following picture was taken on the 100th day of school in 2015. 
I absolutely adore this little girl and apparently she was pretty fond of me too! :) 


This writing prompt is from Mrs. Jones Creation Station

She has a ton of engaging 100th day activities that require minimal effort. 
By minimal effort, you just have to push the print button! 
Easy peasy :) 


Sometimes you need an activity that  calms your friends back down after all the fun!         Remember that the 100th day of 
school only happens once a year so it's important for students to have fun with it!
