100th school day activities 2013
We started the day by walking in place 100 steps, then read Psalm 100. We moved on to a breakfast of oranges, toast and just 100 cereals each. Then I had each child pick up and put away 20 items for a total of 100 items picked up. Kayson's 20, however, consisted of picking up small toys from the Easter hunt and putting them back in his baggie and it was shortly redumped! :-/ Then we read Psalm 119:100, which prompted a brief discussion on what precepts were. Kirsten was sharing the recliner with Keegan when Kayson crawled in her lap and she got the idea that they could rock 100 times, so in climbed Chris and Cayden and they all rocked 100 times! On to writing 100 in shaving cream, then the boys played in it before cleaning it all up, they were even sliding in it bc we did it on the floor, which elicited a lot of be carefuls from me! Cayden had shaving cream from head to toe! :) Handed them all papers and told them to write their names as many times as they could in 100 seconds. I watched the clock. Kirsten wrote hers 25 times, Chris 29, Cayden 7 and started an eighth, Keegan said he wrote his 6 (lol, he just drew a picture, really) and we counted 5 scribbles on Kayson's page. :) Then came 100 jumping jacks, you should of seen us trying to do them and count and stay together! Lunch consisted of mac and cheese, Spam and 100 sunflower kernals each. After lunch we made people 100s. First Cayden was the 1, Kirsten and Kayson made 1 zero, Chris and Keegan the other. Second, Cayden was 1, Kirsten and Chris by themselves were the two zeros. Third, Chris was the 1, while Cayden and Keegan were the zeros. Then we put 100 paperclips together and saw how far they stretched and I made them into a 100. That was neat. Now they are stretched atop our schoolhouse shelf. Then we counted to 100 by 2s, 5s, 10s, 20s, and 25s. Then we counted and lined up 100 pennies. Then I got 100 kisses, 20 from each child! :-* At this point the next few activities were quiet ones and it was rest time so we gathered on our (mama and Daddy's) big bed and listened to the 100th song on my itouch. I had everyone close their eyes and lay very still for 100 seconds. :) long enough for Kayson to fall asleep for his nap! Then we looked at the first 100 photos on the ipad, my itouch and iphone for a total of 300 pics. That was fun bc some of the pics were from around 2 years ago! We got up after that, except a still sleeping Kayson and picked up 100 more items. Then it was time for the 100 lego build. I handed each child a gal baggie with 100 legos and told them to build something. They worked really hard on that! :) Came up with some great and very creative things. Kirsten made a playground, complete with a working swing and armed security! Chris made an inventor's house and could tell me in detail what each invention did. Cayden and Keegan did not use all their legos but they still worked very hard! Kayson sure had fun checking everything out after his nap! Even slid his fingers down Kirsten's slide! He wanted to move Keegan's closer to the others and was so careful picking it up and walking with it, not sure I knew he could be that careful! lol Our last 100 day activity was snack, a vienna sausage for a one and 2 potato chips for zeros. They liked that! lol I think the day was a fun, successful day and I am worn out! We did a lot!
