Day Number 100

Today marked our 100th day of school for the year! It is President's Day, and the public schools are out today (including Dawson's school), but I wanted us to celebrate our accomplishment anyway. We slept in a bit and then spent the morning watching "The Prince of Egypt". We are studying Moses and the deliverance and exodus of the Israelites, so I thought the movie would be a great way to end that study. I had forgotten what a good movie it was. The kids really enjoyed it! (Eli may or may not have cried a couple of times.)

For our 100th Day celebration, I shamelessly copied all of Heidi's ideas:

The kids were greeted with whiteboard welcome sign in the dining room.

I prepared a "100" worksheet with questions for them to answer.

Then I cut out "100" on cardstock and had them get creative using the numbers to make a picture. Eli made a mine cart and Brynne made a catapult.

We did 100 exercises, put together a 100 piece puzzle, and read for 100 seconds times 10, which translated to 10,000 seconds which translated to a little over 16 minutes.

I gave the kids 100 legos to share and had them make something with them while I read our next chapter in The Spiderwick Chronicles. Eli made a "cruise plane" and Brynne made a "security camera plane for France".

It was rainy and cold so we weren't able to get out and do any of the outside activities we had planned. But, it was a fun day.
