Last week we hit a milestone in our homeschool - we completed our 100th day of school work! We had a mini-celebration to mark this momentous occasion! My friend Amber Jones sent me a lot of patterns and ideas to help me out!
::Since we began school, we've added a sticker to our attendance chart each day to help us count to 100. Elaine got to add the final sticker!
::100 Gumballs Craft - even the twins got in on this action, but there was quite a mess of stickers on the table!
:: Psalm 100 fill-in-the-blanks
:: We read 100 words and had 100 calorie pack snacks
:: We made 100 tally marks for math and a booklet of numbers written to 100
:: 100 glasses - they were a little big, but a fun project
:: "If I could, I would buy 100..."
:: Bucket list of things to do before turning 100
Nolan copies Elaine on almost everything. Since Elaine said she wanted to buy 100 horses, Nolan said he wanted to buy a horse for his bucket list. Elaine wants an American Girl doll before she turns 100. She just might accomplish this bucket list!!!
:: Counting 100 objects, then estimating their weight and writing the actual weight. Elaine was counting out Grandpa's "Hunting Fund" piggy bank, so she brought 100 quarters and weighed them.
:: I used an app called "Aging Booth" to take our pictures and then show what we might look like when we are 100. It was fun!
:: We had a special cake (a surprise to Elaine) at supper. It was purple (her favorite), and said "Happy 100th Day of School."
