100th Day Fun & a Freebie!

...98....99.....100!!! Our 100th day of school is almost here! Last year we surprised the students by dressing up like 100 year-old substitute teachers! OMIWORD! I almost forgot just how good we looked! lol The kiddos absolutely loved this. When I took off the wig at the end of the day, one little guy looked at me and said, "I had a feeling that was really you!!!" So funny! Guess I better be digging out my knee-highs & slippers again for Wednesday!

My firsties are sooo excited about this day {Not real sure, but I'm thinkin' that some of them think that the 100th day of school is the last day of school!} Our 100th day actually falls on February 1st, but we will be starting on some of our activities on Monday. One of our l-o-n-g-e-r activities is a little book called "My Book of 100 Words". Last week I asked the kiddos if they could write 100 words and they said, "NO WAY!" Well, won't they be surprised when we finish up our word lists in this little book and they discover that they really can write 100 words!!! If you would like a copy of this lil book, just click on the pic below! Enjoy the 100th Day FREEBIE!
I will be posting a few more 100th day activities this week! Donna over at Kinderglynn as soooo many fab-u-lous activities in her 100th Day units that I can't to dig into them!

  12. You two are the cutest little old ladies I've seen! HU-larious! Love your blog. So many cute ideas! I'm a new follower.

  13. Do they need to use words they already know how to spell or can they use words around the room or in books? Do you do it together or does everyone work independently, small groups? Great idea! Thanks for sharing!!

    1. I had my kiddos work in groups. They could use words around the room, in books...whatever! It was sooo cute to see them helping each other out!! They were so proud to have written 100 words!
