Day 100- Again...

By my count, we are really one Day 104, but today was our 100th day celebration!

To ensure maximum celebration time, first grade decided to swap math and small group reading time. So, we did our small groups in the morning and saved math for the afternoon.

So, here are pictures from literacy centers:

 Word Wall/ Noun Town

 Poetry/ Fluency, Spelling texters

Their 100th day writing activity was a My 100 Day Book. Students were to create a picture of themselves in 100 years. We took it a step further and wrote about what they did in their very long lives. We made a list of different occupations to choose from, but one occupation made my soldiers laugh. I told them I wanted to be a performer when I grew up. 
Soldier- Mrs. Delk, what does performer mean?

 Me- Like on Broadway. I want to sing and dance, and everyone would want to come see me! I'd be famous!

 Different soldier- Mrs. Delk, you can't do that! You're already grown up!

 Me- Don't talk to me. You're totally killing the dream. 

 Yet another soldier- Mrs. Delk, don't listen. I think you can do your dream.
I always knew I liked that kid! :)

Well, my soldiers had a good time writing and drawing about their future professions, and no one killed anyone's dreams.

Our 100th Day fun officially began after lunch, during our rescheduled math time. It worked out well that we had already been practicing grouping numbers up to 100. This activity was great practice!

I'm also impressed with what everyone brought in to sort. Most brought in cereal or candy of some sort, but one soldier brought crayons, and another brought beans. I brought mini marshmallows and stickers for anyone who needed any extra. It was a wide assortment of goods!

We started by sorting what we brought into groups of 10. We had to make sure we had a perfect 100!

 After sorting we had a 10s swap! We went around the room trading a set of 10 for a friend's set of 10. The candy was a popular item, even after I explained that we wouldn't be eating it. After a few rounds of swapping, it was time to glue! And remember, EVERYTHING has to be glued, otherwise it wouldn't be 100!

The end results were colorful, and tasty (looking)!

Students also used  number grid to see how many times their name would fit inside, and they followed directions in coloring a number grid to find the hidden picture. I'm not going to give way the picture answer, but if your child is in love with 'furious fowl' then you should check out {THIS} site!

This is from one of the blogs that I follow. You can find their link on the right side of this page. 1+1+1=1.

All in all, it was a fun filled, educational day!

Great creativity, Soldier!
