100th Day Fun!

We had a wild 100th Day! Our morning was spent on a hidden picture 100 Chart from Katie @ Little Warriors - my students loved it! I adapted it to be more appropriate to our grade level by calling out the numbers by tens and ones - so 68 was 6 tens and eight ones. They were a bit thrown at first but soon caught on. It was such a hit that I will be creating more for them! We also counted to 100 using this video that my kiddos love because at the end it shows 1,000 all the way to 1 billion! I really tricked them by asking what number was in the one's place while I had the video paused on 1,000,000,000, so now I know we still need a bit of work on that concept!
 We had to fit in a timed math test and a visit to the library before lunch too! In the afternoon we had a power outage - at one point there was talk about sending the kids home! We just rolled with it by opening our blinds and leaving our bathroom door open a crack while using it (it was pitch black inside it since there's no window) but we were having way too much fun to let a little lack of electricity send us home! Here's how we spent most of the afternoon:

Each group was 4-5 students and had a leader that moderated the group to ensure cooperation. I purposefully chose my peacekeepers for this task as I knew they could successfully negotiate any quarrels among their teammates. Each group had to trace and cut out the shapes for their project, making sure to keep count. We got a little overzealous on some, and had to remove a few pieces, but that was just another chance to use our subtraction skills! I think our finished projects turned out wonderfully!

 I took a stroll down the hallway to see what the other 1st grade classes had done, and saw that one of my teammates had her students do the 100 object homework project. She had about 70% participation which is fabulous for our school! Here are my 3 favorite projects:

I have another observation next week and I am going to be preparing for it this weekend, so be on the lookout for some freebies! And finally, one of my favorites moments of the day:

Student A: "Who wants to be dumb?" (being silly at lunch time).
Student B: "Not me! I want to be as smart as I can be!"
Student C: "I want to be the smartest man in the whole world!"

Ahh, you gotta love it when they want to learn!
