Hopefully we will all have a smooth transition back to school in January!
In my classroom, the th day is quite an event.
It is a day filled with activities all centered on the guest of honor: From the very first day of school, our class began keeping track of the number of days we have been in school.
As part of our morning calendar routine, we add one popsicle stick to our hundreds pocket chart, then count our sticks.
Blue sticks are equal to 10, and red sticks are equal to 1. This daily routine is setting the foundation for learning place value. On our hundreds chart, we move the clip over one number each day. Then the helper of the day uses the special pointer to lead the class in counting. As we approach the end of the chart, the students realize that we are getting very close to the hundredth day of school.
Somewhere around day 80, we begin counting how many days we have left until the big day.
Before the Big Day To prepare for our festivities, I ask a few of my faithful parent volunteers to assist at our stations during the day. This year we will rotate through six stations, completing the following: You will need one small, resealable zipper storage bag and enough of the following items for each student: To help the kids count their cereal necklace pieces correctly, give each student a hundreds chart to place each piece of cereal on.
Once all squares have been filled in, students can begin stringing their necklace. The same concept can be applied to their trail mix snack. The Family Project Two weeks prior to the target date, I send home a family homework project.
With the help of family members, students are to create a display using items. I am always amazed at the creativity and effort that goes into these projects. The feedback from families is tremendous.
These are a few examples of some of the remarkable projects I have received in the past. I am including a copy of my th day homework assignmentwhich is in English and Spanish. I have taken star die cuts and programmed them with numbers 1 through Before students arrive, I will hide these stars throughout the classroom.
Students will be given a hundreds chart; as they find the stars, they can color in the corresponding number on their charts. While students are busy rushing about in search of numbers, I will be setting up stations and briefing the parent volunteers.
After a majority of the numbers have been spotted, we will commence with our stations. To bring our festivities to an end, we will share our th day homework projects while we snack on our trail mix.
To commemorate the day, I'll also have a few extra special gifts for my students: I used a button-maker machine to create buttons for each student.
I also found bookmarks and stickers and some special pencils that I will give out at the end of the day. Bounce a ball times.This resource is perfect for the th day. My kiddos are so excited for the th day and we will be doing many many activities, including writing.

One thing, to be honest, I was slightly dreading the start of the day. With this continuum in mind, I reflected back on my literacy instruction and what I would need to change in it.
I needed less time drilling letters and sounds- even if all of my students were actively engaged in the games, activities, and songs I was using to teach the letters, I realized I needed to have less of a focus on individual sounds and more of the same types of activities related to.
th Day of School February 1, With all the random crazy weather days we’ve had this year, I know many teacher friends who have yet to celebrate the th day.
