We made it to 100 days! It took us a bit longer than most-due mainly to sickness and having Levi. We broke away from our elephant unit (which I’ll post about later) to have fun with the number 100.
We started out by taking pictures similar to our first day of school pictures. We did nice smiles and silly faces.
Next we prepared our snack-colorful fruit ring cereal necklaces-serving size: 100 rings. I had the girls make piles of 10 so we could count by 10’s to 100.
We had fun with q-tip painting, filling diamonds with 10 dots each, to add to 100. I found a similar idea on Pinterest, I just made my own sheet. The girls got a little carried away on some of their diamonds by making 11 or 12 dots, but it was fun anyway.
While searching Pinterest for other 100th Day ideas I found a website offering a free gumball machine printable. We worked together to fill it up with 100 gumballs using do-a-dot markers.
We finished our day putting together a 100-piece puzzle, being sure to count them first using our 100-chart. We had trouble putting the pieces on neatly, so it seemed we were missing a few, but this former-auditor mommy new better (I had counted them the night before). Lily woke up from her nap at this point, so she helped out too.
We’re looking forward to continuing on in our studies. Hopefully as the weather begins to warm we’ll even get to fit in a field trip here and there. I am very proud of all the progress the girls have made. When I look back on their accomplishments it makes this whole homeschooling thing seem doable. I’m pretty sure we’ll continue on into first grade with how things have gone this year!
