Five for Friday - 100th Day of Prep!

Today was our 100th day of Prep!!! 
So I'm linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for a 100th day style Five for Friday.

1. 100 Creations
 The students had the option of bringing in a project made from 100 of "something". We had some incredibly creative ideas! One girl had sat up "all night long" (so she said), to cut out 100 paper people chains. That's dedication!

100 pictures, 100 petals, 100 paper punches, 100 paddle pop sticks, 100 Cheerios (to make an abacus), and 100 pieces of Lego.

2. 100 Year Olds
 I originally saw this idea from Howywood Kindergarten
First, they finished the sentence, "When I'm 100 years old...", then they crumpled up paper and flattened it to make a wrinkled face, added a semi circle for a shirt and then added details on the face using felt pens. I used white paint for the hair instead of cotton wool (because I had none!).

3. 100 Activities
 We practised counting in 10's up to 100 and then made ice-creams to go along with it. 
We also counted out 100 beads and timed each other to see who could do it the quickest.

4. 100 Songs 
 We sang lots of songs about the number 100. Thanks to GoNoodle's new feature where you can add your own YouTube clips, I had a few counting to 100 songs ready to go! And, because they were getting points to sing them, they were more than happy to count to 100 so many times!

5. 100th Day Party!!!
You can't have a 100th day without a party. We had SO.MUCH.FOOD! Seriously, I had trouble fitting it all on the tables. The kids kept coming back for seconds and thirds...until I shut the door and made them go run around outside and use up all that new sugary energy they had obtained from mountains of cupcakes and chocolate biscuits.
What a day!

Till next time, 
Stay joyful!
