100 Day...and a BIG GIVEAWAY!

Yesterday we celebrated
100 DAY


Which was something new for me...

{Our Kindergarten program is 3 full days per week, and usually in our year we have a snow day or two so we never make it to day 100.}

I had to come up with some activities for my class to do to celebrate!

This time we needed both Zero the Hero AND Zerona to help us
in our days at school count, as we needed two zeros to make 100!


I put together a little booklet of activities for the kids to do throughout the day:




a page where students make a self-portrait of what they look like on day 100
of Kindergarten


colouring page of Zero and Zerona



They had to make 10 gumballs in each gumball machine, which worked out to 100.


{Can you tell I ran out of coloured ink!?}


I made this roll-the-dice game, where students took turns to roll the dice & fill in that many spaces. The first player to get to 100 wins!






GIVEAWAY

To celebrate my first time ever having 100 days of Kindergarten,
I am having a big giveaway...

Up for grabs is a 100 pocket chart set!

It includes a 26" W x 27 1/2" H pocket chart with 100 clear pockets
&
120 double-sided cards

We're Going On A Bug Hunt...freebie!

During the month of June, our theme has been Bugs, Insects, and Creepy Crawlies.

One fun activity we did today is head outside to search for some of these little creatures. Armed with a clipboard and a crayon, we made our way outside to the schoolyard to see what we could find.

My Bug Scavenger Hunt list has an arrow pointing to each bug. To 'check them off', they colour in the arrow. I have them take turns, to avoid arguments :)




If you'd like a copy of my Bug Scavenger Hunt checklist, click on the link below.


We were fairly successful, finding most of the critters on the list!


This activity is very similar to the Spring Scavenger Hunt that we did in April.
If you'd like to see what we did during our Spring Scavenger Hunt, or to download the Spring Scavenger Hunt freebie, click on the links below.

We have just one and a half days of school left!
WOOT! WOOT!

On  Monday we will reach day 100...and I will be having a giveaway!
Stay tuned for the details...

Very Hungry Caterpillar Class Project & Colour Wheel Lesson Pics

As part of our bug unit, we read The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle, and worked on a collaborative class project:


Working in pairs, students painted glue onto a pre-cut oval.


They placed tissue paper squares onto the glue, overlapping the pieces as they went.


These ovals made up the caterpillar's body.


A red circle with red tissue paper was used for its head.

Two longer strips & blue tissue paper were used as the antennae.


It looks great in the hall outside of our classroom!


I posted here about our previous art lesson on the colour wheel.
The pictures are now hanging up on the bulletin board:

So colourful!

Math Power Towers, Worm Measuring, & More Math Work Stations

Here is our last round of Math Work stations for the year!


POWER TOWERS

This fun, hands-on activity is from Teacher Tipster.
I used Dixie cups and printed numbers onto the bottom, using a Sharpie.
 Students take turns reading the number, then stacking it into a Power Tower.


The cups are stored in a Pringles chips tube.

I created a label to go on the outside of the can:

{Of course, these could be made for math facts as well.}

I have also made a set for sight word practice...see that activity here.


UNIFIX CUBE ADDITION

Students select addition flashcards, then show the addition problems using unifix cubes.


They use 2 different colours, one for each numeral. This provides a great visual for the two numbers being added together.


Very effective, hands-on learning!

BUG PATTERNS

I have a set that includes bugs & the accompanying pattern cards. Students use the bug manipulatives to make, then extend the patterns.


WORM MEASUREMENT

This set includes worms of varying colours & lengths as well as the accompanying task cards.


What a fun way to measure...using worms :)


POCKET CHART NUMBERS

Using cards 1-30 {from my 100 chart}, students shuffle, then put the number cards in order on the pocket chart.

NUMBER CLIPS

I made this activity last summer, after discovering lots of great classroom ideas on Pinterest.

Click here for my post about these great finds.

Click here to find my Pinterest boards.


I used stickers and bristol board to create this counting/matching game.
Students use numbered clothespins to match the clothespin number with the stickers of that amount. 


BUGGY BINGO

I believe I got this from Scholastic. It is fantastic.

{Didn't mean to make a rhyme about it.}


This game is a favourite in my classroom. It is a great way to reinforce counting and matching, and it goes perfectly with our Bug Theme.


FILE FOLDER GAMES

Butterfly matching, spider counting....lots of bug activities.


OK, I'm off to write those final report cards....
