Take yourself back to your first year at school and remember how it was to be the little fish in a big pond, scary right!
What’s really scary is how long ago that actually was :-o
As an adult looking back it might not seem like a big deal now but for your little school goers’, reaching 100 days of their first school year is something that should be celebrated in a big way!
Celebrating this milestone can be a great opportunity for both, students and teachers to recap on the year so far. It’s an exciting way to put a break on the everyday routine and shine a bright light on alternative learning.
So, now brings the question;
Start by collectively putting a list together of their favourite things. Kids have no limitations to their imagination at this young age so who knows where the list could take you - 100 Dinosaurs, 100 Butterflies, 100 soccer balls, 100 Unicorns – pick one item off their list (obviously one of the more realistic choices) and display them around the classroom. You can use this opportunity to turn this into a multitude of math lessons.
You could even ask your students to bring in 100 of something – you might want to put some restrictions on this – perhaps only what they can fit inside a book bag. 100 Cotton Balls, Paddle pop sticks, Rice Bubbles, Jelly Beans, rubber bands, coins, paperclips, feathers, a book with 100 pages- the list is endless, hopefully no student brings in 100 cockroaches (the fake ones are ok). Smarties is a great option as your 100 days smarter lol
We love this idea. Grab yourself a few packs of Heart Cutouts and hand one to each student, spend the afternoon working on their spelling and have them write what they love most about school and learning. At the end of the school year hand each student their love heart back and spend a day reflecting.
Inflate 100 balloons (with air or helium) and write numbers on them. Have the kids work together and put the balloons in chronological order. You could even hide a little something inside each balloon, a little note or a lolly perhaps and by popping the balloon a surprise is revealed.
Hide 100 Glow sticks around the classroom and make the room as dark as you can to play find the glow stick. Putting the glow sticks in hard to reach places is a great way for the kids to learn how to work together to achieve a common goal. Set a time limit of 100 seconds and if they can collect them all in time everyone gets a prize.
If you can’t get the room dark enough for the glow sticks to be seen, try fillable eggs. Put clues in each one as to where they might be able to find the next.
Grab a few puzzles with 100 pieces and in small groups have the students complete a puzzle. This is great for some quite time at the end of the day.
Now l know this sounds like torture but surely the kids have the energy right? Rather than coming up with 100 different exercises, just come up with 10 and do 10 reps of each – this will keep the kids engaged and help them in math by learning to count by tens. Plus it will tire them out for the afternoon – winning!
Have a little ceremony at the end of the day. Invite the parents in for the last half hour of the school day and award each child a little medal. It won’t cost much with our bulk pack of medals but it will make a big impact.
Did somebody say Fairy Bread? What better way to celebrate any occasion in Australia than with Fairy Bread. Shop our wide range of sprinkles and watch the kids enjoy one of Australia’s classic party foods.
This would have to be by far the cutest dress up theme for kids! It’s so funny – you’ll laugh, you’ll cry. Have each student stand up in front of the class and have them tell the class how they think life at 100 years feels like – do they have a bad back, can they not hear just right anymore - honestly it feels like this happens alot earlier than 100.
You will find some great old people dress up accessories at Shindigs, perfect for pairing with their own clothes, or what they can borrow from Grandma and Grandpa (just make sure they don’t steal their false teeth, they might need those).
