Today was Garrett's 100th day of kindergarten. All morning until lunch time the kindergarten classes rotated to different rooms doing fun activities to celebrate. My boyfriend and I both got to go and help out. It was a very fun morning for everyone.
Garrett and I talked about the 100th day and making something cool for it, and he wanted to make a gigantic snake. So we decided to make the snake in the shape of '100' and gave him stripes with 100 m&ms. Garrett seemed satisfied with it, and his friends all seemed to like it, so I think it was a success. The glue melted the m&m's so there was color leaking all over the project, but it wasn't too bad.
The doorway into the kindergarten hall was decorated with a super fun poster.
I got to the school late, so I missed the class doing a 100th day scavenger hunt.
The first thing I got to see was 100th day King/Queen crowns. The kids all got to decorate Steak and Shake hats with the number 100 and some various shapes and stickers.
Garrett was actually almost willing to have his picture taken for once.
After they made their crowns the teacher told them a story as they sat on the rug. They're supposed to sit 'criss-cross applesauce' but Garrett apparently decided it was time to get comfortable.
They all got to sign their names on this "I am 100 days smarter!" sheet. I love seeing all the different signatures. One little boy circled his name after writing it. Garrett for some reason started writing his sideways down the paper. One of the girls wrote hers huge taking up a big chunk of the paper.
Everyone in the kindergarten classes was given a number between 1 and 100 to decorate a couple of weeks ago. As they brought them back to school they got hung in the hallway until the entire wall was completed.
Garrett's snake was hanging up outside his classroom. He's the only one that had a creative project. Most of the others were just 100 pennies or cheerios in a plastic bag.
I'm not sure what he was saying here, but he was eating the 100 day snack he'd just made. The kids counted out 10 of 10 different things then got to sit down and eat it. 10 marshmallows, 10 pretzels, 10 m&ms, 10 cocoa puffs, 10 cheetos, 10 chocolate chips, 10 white chocolate chips, 10 fruit loops, 10 cheerios, and 10 goldfish crackers.
Then they went in the next classroom to make '100' masks.
Garrett finished his mask and just looked dreadfully bored.
Luckily for him everyone else started finishing up and they sat down to sing this 100th Day Chant. (it sounds like the seven dwarfs song)
Finally they were back in their classroom where they did 10 sets of 10 different exercises. Garrett smiled for this picture during bicep raises then decided he wasn't exercising any more and stood there completely still for the rest of the time.
All that exercising made for some hungry 6 year olds. Lunch was the next stop. Then all the helpers left and it was back to normal for the afternoon.
