100 Days

Well we finally made it to the 100 Day mark.  I can't believe how quickly this year is flying by.  Several of my centers this week were 100 day projects.  The kiddos made a dalmation using 10 sets of 10 to make 100 dots.  They loved this activity.  Usually the glue creates a sticky mess but they did a great job this time.  I have a parent take home a hole punch and black construction paper to prepare for this one.
100 Day Dalmation.

Then we rolled a die 100 times.  I've done this activity many times and often get "I'm done" after they have played for 5 minutes.   Since ya'll know what a long attention span little firsties have...we take breaks and come back to this through out the day. I actually did it in the afternoon and had it waiting for them the next morning. 

Then we made GORP.  Granola, Oats, Raisins and Peanuts...or if you're from the south...Good Ol Raisins and Peanuts.  I borrowed the big bowl from a kindergarten teacher.  This thing is gigantic ya'll.  We borrow it from her all the time.  The kiddos know exactly where to go when you say "Go get Mrs. B's big pink bowl. 

Our goodies didn't include the peanuts but we did have; goldfish, fruitloops, cheerios, M&M's, popcorn, raisins, and pretzels.

Then they sorted by tens.  Some made neat little piles.   Some rows of 10.  And some just made a messy mish mosh of piles, but understood the concept so all was good in the world. 

 Then the best part we ate our snack.  Everytime you feed them it never fails you always hear "You're the best teacher ever".  Love little firsties.
