The most recent exciting second grade adventure was the celebration of the 100th day of school! We may have done it just a few days early, but there are always inevitable schedule changes with everything that goes on at school including snow days. (By the way, this teacher is not-so-secretly hopeful for another one tomorrow. You can check out this post for what to do if you’ve got some snow days coming up.)
The 100th day of school celebration was a blast! We started off our morning dressed as old people. Why? We were 100 years old. Some people didn’t get the connection…and some students didn’t think I looked that old. And the administrator’s mother may have said I look just like her. Oops. But it was a lot of fun to attempt! I guess I really should have looked a little harder for the temporary gray hairspray.
The students also brought in 100 pieces of some type of snack to share with a friend. Say hello to sugar overload! But it worked out well and it was fun for the kids to share their treats with each other.
The other second grade teacher celebrated her 100th day of school as well. Her class decorated shirts with 100 of some item of their choice and wore it to school. There are a ton of options for this fun day.
One last activity that we got to do was a scavenger hunt. It may have been a little bit of mayhem in the classroom, but the kids loved it! I hid 100 Hershey kisses around the room. (They were labeled 1-100 to make sure we could find them all.) The students were able to find them; then we counted them all off. It was a good day for us.
I had one other 100 day craft planned, but I’ll save that for another day. Part of being a first year teacher is learning how to time your day accurately. Usually things take longer than you plan, but hey, that’s part of the fun of still learning.
I’m so excited that I’ve been able to celebrate 100 days of teaching, and I hope to have hundreds of days more in the future!
