Transformation for the 100th Day

Leading up to the 100th day of school, we count by 1's to 100. But something else that we do as a grade level is on every 10th day of school, Zero the Hero comes to visit! She does a quick get together lesson in our collaborative area as we count to 100! The students LOVE having Zero the Hero come to school. They have been so excited counting to today...the 100th day of school!

When our students arrived to school today they noticed our rooms, hallways and collaborative area were transformed into a spy scene. They soon discovered that they had to save Zero the Hero so we could celebrate the 100th day of school! This idea came from Hope King and Kinderbrations 100s Day Resource.

We have 5 kindergarten classrooms, so each classroom became a rotation that our students rotated throughout the day. Rotations included: 100th Day snack, Bowling, Spying Sight Words, STEM projects and games with 100 items.

In my classroom, students had a mission to identify sight words. They had to get a piece of "evidence" of the evidence bag, use a magnifying glass and then determine the sight word that was listed. (I typed the sight words in 5 pt font) Once they could read the sight word they had to then find the matching letter and write the sight word on the recording sheet.

They wrote with highlighters which really showed up under the black light, wore glow in the dark necklaces and glow in the dark glasses. They had SO much fun!  This idea was inspired by Kinderbrations 100s Day Resource. We wanted to add more literacy activities into our rotations so I created this sight word activity. It was a hit with our students!

 Then every couple of rotations, we met back at Spy Headquarters where we received another clue to help us save 100s day! The students had to do various activities to gain another clue! The clues came from  Kinderbrations 100s Day Resource.

Then once our students solved the clue, we found Zero the Hero and she even brought us some treats! This is the 2nd year that we saved Zero the Here and it has been by far one of my favorite ways to celebrate the 100th day of school! Do you celebrate the 100th Day of School?
