The good folks over at Teachers Pay Teachers (hats off to Jodi in particular) have put together a nice round-up of the 100th day of school activities for the elementary grades.
The list includes everything from reading, writing, and arithmetic to STEM and art activities. And I am happy to find my 100th Day of School Collaborative Classroom Banner included among those resources to help teachers celebrate a fun milestone of their school year!
My 100th Day of School Classroom Banner is a great activity to get everyone in the class working together to celebrate their 100th day of learning. It includes 27 individual pieces, which, when combined, results in a colorful, approximately 21 in. X 63 in. banner to liven up your classroom for the occasion. The students love working on their own pieces and love the magic that happens when all the individual pieces are assembled. The process and result are a great symbol of their journey through the first 100 days of school together.
Students all enjoy coloring their own pages in their own ways. Then the pieces are all cut out, and the poster is assembled. You can tape the poster together on the back, glue it to butcher paper, or staple it right to a bulletin board.
You can get a scale of this poster when you see it on a table like this…
I’ve also included a selection of “100” Pop Art-styled coloring sheets so each student can have something to take home with them. This also works great for the early finishers of the poster – they can finish their contribution to the poster and then do their own coloring page!
It’s a lot of fun, as are all of the resources that TPT has included in its 100th Day of School Activities collection. I am sure you can find something there to get your kids excited!
As always, thanks for making art with your students!
