It's the 100th Day Y'all!

Today was our 100th Day of School!! I had to share our 100th Day idea! Our Kinder team does a 100th Day Carnival! This is our 2nd year of doing a carnival and after the huge success of last year it will be an annual event!

So I bet you are wondering... what is the 100th Day Carnival all about?

We block off the Kinder hallway for 2 hours for our Carnival. (We are lucky enough to all be on the same hallway.) Each teacher has 3 math related games for students to play. Each child gets a 100s chart. (I put a string on mine for students to wear around their neck.) Each game is worth 5 spaces on the 100s chart (kind of like tickets.) When students visit the booths they have to color in 5 squares on the 100s chart. We have crayons/markers at each booth/station for them to color in their hundreds chart. We have parent volunteers that run the booths so that teachers can circulate in the hallway to help with behavior and to keep booths moving.

Games include:
*Face painting- 100s of course
*Fishing for numbers
*Duck Pond (adding numbers together)
*Cookie Walk (like a cake walk)
*Estimation Station (students estimate candy in jars- pick winner at end)
*Hula hoop to 100
*Dance to 100 rap
*Pin the buttons on the Snowman
*Ring Toss
...and this year we added a POPCORN MACHINE!!! :) (We had 2 great dad's that did an AwEsOmE job running it!!)

I forgot my camera today, so I used my iPhone to take some pictures. They are not that great, but you get the idea! :)
