The 100th day of school is quickly approaching! Every year, we would invite parents into the classroom and our five first-grade teachers rotated activities for an entire day to ensure their students had fun while also learning in Reading/Phonics, Writing, Math, and Science. From classic favorites like writing about what they would do if they had $100 to creating a self-portrait of themselves when they are 100 years old. I have some new fun-filled activities to make this milestone memorable for all these young learners!
Before we get started, I have all of these activities for 50% off! Get them HERE!
