100th day - Hooray!

Yesterday was out 100th day of school!  What a blast we had - literally!  We blasted off as Zero the Hero:

We loved exercising to Jack Hartman's Zero the Hero song on this CD.
We also made Zero the Hero puppets.

These guys came from a sweet Texas gal that I met last summer, Crystal at Kreative in Kinder.

We created ourselves at 100 year olds.


We predicted and graphed if we could walk around our school in 100 steps.  Womp womp!  We barely made it to the front entrance.

At our school we have seven kindergarten classes.  We all went outside to take an aerial view of all of us standing in the formation of the number 100.  That pic is not here yet.  I will have to post it later.

Other fun we had included writing about what we would do with $100 and all the kinder teacher ran a different activity station for 100 seconds, such as hopping for 100 seconds, dancing for 100 seconds, etc.

"buy color feathers like red, yellow, purple, green, orange."

"I will buy a motorcycle if I had 100 dollars."

"I'm giving my 100 dollars to my dad."

We also brought 100 items from home to compare weights on a pan balance.  I introduced the activity by explaining that a pan balance helps us understand objects that are heavy and light in comparison to each other.  I used Penelope the hedgehog to help us understand better.

Thanks Penelope!

We then compared our items to other friends' items and recorded our learning on this recording sheet.

You can click on the pic above to snag it from my website.

The kinder teachers all dressed up like we were 100 years old.

We may have pulled a few pranks while the kids were at specials.

I hope you have or had a fabulous 100th day!

  3. HAHAHAHA! First off, let me tell you how jealous I am that you have partners to work with! I AM the only k teacher at our mountain school and would love some buddies to plan with! Your glyphs are great and it looks like you kids had a great time! Thank you for the great ideas.

  4. The children and the teachers are so cute that I even wanted to join on their hilarious antics. :) I've been busy as one of the mightystudents in our school that's why I read this post way too late.
