Hey, hey! I hope you’ve had a wonderful week.
Today, I am sharing a weekly recap of the activities, books, ideas, etc. that I’ve shared on Instagram this week. I’ll do a little recap every week and send it out on Friday mornings. Do you remember Five for Fridays? Y’all, I LOVED reading those! These recaps will be very similar. If you’re a subscriber then you’ll get this delivered straight to your inbox on Friday mornings. There will be links (under the pics) to where you can find anything that I share. My plan is to include FREEBIES in these recaps, too! I hope that these weekly recaps will be resourceful and helpful to you when planning.
This week’s recap is all about the 100th Day of School! Let’s get started!
This STEM activity makes me giggle every single time. It is PRECIOUS and turns out so cute! This activity is from my 100th Day STEM here.
This is a great read aloud for the 100th Day of School and it’s pretty perfect for hitting that problem and solution standard. After reading, students could make a paper airplane with the problem / solution from the story using a t-chart and fly them around the room or outside for fun! The book is available on Amazon (affiliate link here), but you could also check your school and local library.
Can you make a cake with candles and play dough that has multiple levels and doesn’t fall down? This is another 100th Day STEM activity available in my STEM pack, here. It’s challenging, but lots of fun.
…and another fun STEM activity – available here.
Here’s a few tips I shared on Instagram when setting up the 100th Day STEM stations:
-store materials and STEM challenge sheet in a bin of some sort (laminate the challenge sheet)
-establish expectations & rules ahead of time
-discuss the challenge for each station before students start rotating (give examples if needed)
-send home the editable parent/guardian letter to ask for donations of materials…the teacher budget is real, y’all!
-have extra materials on hand if needed
-group students with those that you know they will work best with
-plan enough time for students to dissemble, clean up, and complete their journal reflection page before rotating to the next station
100th Day Worries is another fun read aloud. If your class brings in a collection of 100 items, this one is great! (affiliate link)
100th Day bucket lists! These could be completed in a writing station. You’ll just need cotton balls for this.
Window art! These are super simple to make and can be displayed on your classroom window or send them home with students to display on their window at home. These are FREE, HERE. All you’ll need is contact paper and tissue paper. The directions are included in the free download 🙂
Math hativity! For this activity, students color the pictures that show 100 and glue it to their hat. Hello math standards! This is FREE, HERE.
100th Day printables! If you’re looking for a print and go type of activity for the 100th day…these are just that. Print and go! You can find them here!
Here are a few other 100th Day read alouds just incase you are needing/wanting more! Again, I’m sure some of these will be at your local or school library, but here are links to Amazon if you’re wanting to grab them for your personal library! (all contain affiliate links)
Jake’s 100th Day of School / 100 Snowmen / 100 Days of School (Math is Fun) / 100th Day Worries / 100 Days of Cool / The Night Before the 100th Day of School / Centipede’s 100 Shoes / 100 School Days
And that, my friends, is a wrap for the first Weekly Recap! Again, I hope that these recaps will be helpful to you.
