100 Days of School

This week, we celebrated the 100th day of school. Since I have a resource room, I don't have a lot of time to do extra things due to my crazy schedule. But I am so glad I made time to do this super fun activity with my students.

Are you looking for a fun activity to celebrate 100 days of school? This idea will have your students writing, reading, using technology, and laughing.

We started off discussing what we will look like and act like when we are 100 years old. I took pictures of my students and used the app Aging Booth to "time travel" to our picture when we were 100 years old.

My kids were laughing so hard at these pictures.

We talked about what our lives would be like when we were 100 years old and what kind of person we thought we would be. Fall Into First has a great writing activity that we did. I gave my students the same writing template to help them make grammatically correct sentences (a huge project in my room).

This is probably my favorite bulletin board of the whole year.

We've been working really hard on reading what we write and fluency. To help tie this project into this two objectives, I used another app on Day 2 called ChatterPix.

With ChatterPix, you can upload any photo and record voice to it. By drawing a simple line on the photo, you make a "mouth" that speaks your recording.

On ChatterPix, you can only record 30 seconds of video. This was super great for me, because my students need to practice their fluency. We did a practice run reading our writing while I timed with my stopwatch timer on my phone. I wouldn't let students attempt recording until they could read their writing in less than 30 seconds. 

Here's one of my favorite videos that totally cracked me up!

After we made our videos, we uploaded them to our online portfolios at SeeSaw.

My parents always leave the sweetest comments to our SeeSaw uploads.

This 100 Day of School activity will be a favorite every year now! It was totally worth the effort, and we have laughed so much the last two days.
