Well today, here at our homeschool we celebrated our 100th day of school this year. This is our third year homeschooling and we’ve never done anything for it before, so I thought we would do something fun and different.
So of course we started the day with breakfast, this was simply oval pancakes and a piece of banana. After breakfast we headed upstairs and made these fun 100th day glasses. Afterwards, we got to work on 100 piece puzzles. I did our memory work and Read-alouds during this time. Unfortunately the puzzles turned out to be 94 piece and 99 piece 🙂 Then it was time for our 100 piece snack! (10 carrots in hummus, 10 tomatoes, 10 apple slices, 10 cheese slices, 10 crackers, 10 animal crackers, 10 cocoa almonds, 10 cashews, 10 pepperonis, and 10 cubes of watermelon. Yummy! Then it was time for some math, I hid 100 smarties in a big bowl of puffed millet. The first task was finding the pieces, then we placed them on the 100 ‘ s chart, counting by 1 ‘ s and 10’s. After that, they divided the smarties in half, and graphed them by color. I finally let them eat them, while they worked on this worksheet. This was by far my favorite thing we did today. First the kids wrote about what they will be like when they are 100 years old, then they created their “old” selves. This was such a great project idea. Sorry for the sideways picture, I’ll fix it later. Then we counted out exactly 100 lego pieces for each kid and they created something. The boy created a TV news studio, and the girl made a surf shop. This was fun too. We ended the day with some excercise, 10 of each kind. 10 jumping jacks, sit ups, hopping on one foot etc.
The kids had lots of fun today, so I wanted to share the day. All the activities took a lot longer than I expected. I wanted to make a special 100th day cake or cookie. But by the time we finished everything else it was past 4pm. Guess time really does fly when your having fun!
