100 Days of School

Last week my son celebrated being in kindergarten 100 days!  As a former kindergarten teacher, I know how exciting this is.  The kids and I decided to do some activities revolving around this.  Here is what we did.

* How far can you run (how many hops, jumps, etc.)  in 100 seconds?  My son made it down our block and back again.

* Make 100 snack. 10 groups of ten we like raisins, chocolate chips, cereal, pretzels, cheese crackers, peanuts, M&M’s, oyster crackers, etc.

* What will you look like in 100 years?  Apparently my son had already done this in class so Ayla made her picture.

Wrinkles, long dress, small feet and cury hair!

* If 100 balloons came over our house and popped open, what do you hope would be inside? Fun to talk about or make a book about.

* If you had $100 what would you buy?  Our house would have more Lego’s and Barbies.

* My son’s class also collected (over) 100 canned goods to donate to a local food bank (our church!)  Great way to give back.

This is a great way to incorporate math, counting, and learning in a fun everyday way.  Happy learning!
