100 Day Party

Well most traditional Kindergarten's celebrate 100 days in school. Well I have fond memories of fun parties when I was a classroom teacher. So Josie and I threw a party for her! She invited a few neighbors and had a blast. We measured 100 inches on the sidewalk and they created creatures that same length. We also measured 100 feet. We decorated paper glasses in the shape of 100. We followed clues written on 100 dollar bill copies. They went all over the yard to find a box of 100 jellybeans. They played hide and seek, had a bike parade and played basketball. Many ideas stemmed from her and she led them. I saw her confidence build as she was the youngest kid, but allowed to be the leader! It was a simple party, followed by some 100 day books, and 100 day soup! Which she and her brother said was the best! I love days where learning can occur through play! Lots of math, cooperation, P.E., reading, art!
