First, I used last year's idea and scattered the numbers 1-100, written on apple Post-Its, all over the walls of our main floor. The twist this year is that the numbers from 51-100 were written as math problems for Harry to solve, to make it a little more difficult. With the help of their (stuffed) friends Hedwig and Scabbers, Harry and Ron made it through with flying colors!
Then it was time for 100-shaped breakfast items: eggs, pancakes, and ham!
Ron and Harry counted out 100 popcorn kernels:
And the popcorn became a part of our 100 pieces of snacks, which everyone counted out on their own:
Then it was estimation time! The question the boys pondered was which one of the three containers of candy had 100 total pieces:
I gave them the technique of counting out 10 of each and using that as the basis for their estimation:
(And yes....they did get to sample some of the goodies after the counting was done!)
Next, a quick probability exercise: what happens when you flip a coin 100 times?
An art project: what can you create out of 100 dots of paint?
Harry walked 100 steps from home...
...then drew a picture of himself at age 100 while Ron built a ship out of 100 Lego pieces:
Lastly, our celebration cupcakes: 10 cupcakes each with 10 sprinkles on top!
And that was our 100 Day Celebration! Lastly, on an unrelated note, I read The Grouchy Ladybug with the Ron and Dobby, and they painted these cute rocks to commemorate the story:
Weren't they adorable? =) Hope you had a wonderful week! We start Spring Break next week, hooray!
