Hundredth Day Fun!


Today was the hundredth day of school. For the first time, I tried to make it as much like a party as academically possible.
We started our day with interactive number lines. Students were all given different numbers to begin with and then were to add or subtract one hundred or ten from their starting numbers.




Next we had several centers that they played based on one hundred. They had to build a cup tower out of one hundred cups. Each group was trying to build the tallest tower. As you will see the final pictures show the group that achieved their goal.







We also bundled straws into groups of ten to then group into hundreds.

The students built towers out of toilet paper rolls also.


They put one hundred gummy bears into a cup using only a straw.


They wrote 100 adjectives on balloons. They learned to use thesaurus.com.




They also wrote 100 verbs on our super hero capes. Because they are, after all, Heroes!

Kahoot!

How to Make a Gorgeous Kahoot! And How to Collect Data!



     Some of you know that you can search for already made Kahoots for your students. Some of you are saying, I don't have time to make a Kahoot! I have a compulsion to make all things my students do. I truly do not have time for that. BUT, when you make something with technology, you have it for years. So, I enjoy being a Kahoot nerd and making my own Kahoots. If you are deciding right about now that you will never want t make a Kahoot, please feel free to use the ones I make. I would love it actually. You can find them all easily right here. If you love using easy data, the last two slides talk about how to get data from Kahoots. So here we go!


     First of all. If you go to create a Kahoot, you go to create.kahoot.it. When you play you go to Kahoot.it. If your students want to use the ghost feature they should be signed up. We are a BYOD school and I have learned over the years it really saves time and confusion if you go ahead ad sign the kiddos up for the things you want them to do. Simply let the parents know which apps they need to install on their devices.


Back on Task! Here is a Quick and Pretty Kahoot!
