It's the 100th Day of School!

Hip Hip Horray for the 100th Day!

Hey everyone!  I am so excited to be here!!  I'm Amy from Cahill's Creations.  This is my very first time blogging and I am thrilled to be here.   I hope everyone is having a great start to the new year.  I'm currently in my 10th year of teaching and I've spent the last 5 years in the magical world of kindergarten.  So, my post today is all about spending the 100th day in a kindergarten classroom.



Now, let me just say I wish every class in our school had as much excitement about this day, but that's just not the case.  While we spent the day celebrating 100, the rest of the school went about their typical school day.  Some older kids even dared to ask why I looked so funny!

 

The kindergarten team decided to dress up like 100 year olds, so we invited the kids to do the same.  It was so much fun!  The kids were adorable!!  Here are some good pictures.  I am the one wearing blue.  I cannot tell you enough how much I LOVE the 100th day of school!



We make the entire week all about 100.  It's such a build up and we wanted the kids to get excited about it too.  The homework assignment was to make a picture using 100 objects.  It's always a great way to get the whole family involved.  I loved seeing all of the creativity that came out of the projects! These were just a few of my favorites.



I created a 100 day book filled with things you can do in 100 seconds.  I think the best part of this book is the fact that I compete against my class.   Everyone tries really hard to beat me, but no such luck.  Some did come close, though.  :)  Oh, yes, I am pretty competitive.  My class had a blast with this little book.
Check it out {here}. 


Notice that the number he wrote doesn't match the number of words he wrote.  I only noticed after the picture was taken. 



 I think the best thing I found this year was an app called oldster.  It is seriously amazing.  I tested it out on my 5 year old and it was kinda scary how it made her look so old!  If you're planning on celebrating the 100th day you should try this app!  Grab the paper {here}



Well, I am thrilled to have survived the 100th day of school.  It was exhausting, but so much fun.  When is your 100th day and how will you celebrate?

  2. I love your picture, so funny! My favorite 100th day activity is when the kids write about when they'll be 100 years old. They write the funniest things: "I'll be grouchy, I'll walk really slow, I'll take naps and eat mushy food." LOL! I also hide 100 Hershey kisses and they look for them and bring them to a big chart I have with 100 numbered circles for them. Of course, their favorite part is eating them! =) Thanks for the great post!

  3. Our 100th day is coming up soon (that is if we ever get to go to school ~ the darn weather is keeping the Midwest at home again!). My teaching partners and I decided to dress up like 100 year olds for the first time this year ~ I can't wait! I want to check out that app, too. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I emailed the pictures from my oldster app to my email and then downloaded to my desktop. Since my paper is a PDF you'll have to print the pictures from your desktop and then glue on the paper. I hope this helps!! It is such a fun app!
