100th Day Comes & Goes Fast, Let's Make Memories that Last Linky Party

I cannot believe that it is almost the 100th day of my first year of teaching first grade!  I am thinking this calls for a BIG celebration.  I've done lots of the same activities year after year because I always have new students, but this year is different since I have most of the same students I had last year.  I am looking for some new, exciting, unique ideas.  Do you have any for me?

I am doing the 100 Day Capes (see the freebie in the link up!) of course, but EduKate has also inspired me to do this utilizing the Aging Booth app:
No bias of course, but aren't they just the cutest little. old men you've ever seen?  Just because its the 100th day of school, we can't veer TOO far from the everyday curriculum, so we will be doing a constructed response based on their pictures of themselves as 100 year olds:  How will you be different than you are now when you are 100 years old.  I am going to use this as the springboard for introducing how to come up with a "gist" for constructed responses...believe it or not, some of them just might be ready...we will see!
If you link up, please be sure to grab the 100 days pic at the top of this post and link back to this specific post (for those who don't know, you can make sure you are at the specific post by clicking on the title of this post).  I can't wait to see what you have in store for my readers and me!

Get Ready for a Super Hero Themed 100th Day of School Right Here with freebies}!

If you've followed me at all over the course of the past few years, you know I LOVE to incorporate my students' pictures into their learning as much as possible.  So, I decided to add a photo project craftivity with one of my students' favorite activities of the year: The 100th Day Super Hero Cape Family Project.  If you haven't heard of it, go to this post to find out more about it.
Here are some pictures of students who celebrated their 100th day of school from around the country.  Thanks again to my readers for sharing their great photos!

Plus, go check out my friend Marsha, at Differentiated Kindergarten, who wrote an amazing 100th Day post that just happened to include, yup, you guessed it, 100th Day SuperHero Capes! Looks like tons of fun!

 Grab the free letter here to do this project on your own (The link is the preview of the product!):
Or, make your life easier by grabbing my ready to go kit that includes everything you need (well, except for the capes) to easily implement this project in your classroom.  You could even hand over the kit that includes details and hints to a classroom volunteer to help you get it all ready!  And, remember, it also includes the cutest (no bias, of course!) 100th Day Super Hero Craftivity pattern to hang in your classroom and write about!
 Check out what TpT users are saying:

Martin Luther King, Jr. Guided Drawing Freebie Plus Other Activities

 What do you do in your classroom to honor Martin Luther King, Jr?  We don't do a lot, but I feel that what we do do is very powerful and gives students a great foundation for who MLK is and what he stood for.  Here is a link to an explanation of my activities here.

The egg activity is explained here.  The gist is that my teaching partner and I each have an egg (one is brown, one is white) and we try to persuade that our egg is better.  In the end, no matter who was more convincing, the children find out that the eggs are exactly the same on the inside!  They love it and it really hits home with them.
One last thing!  My students LOVED this rap video that helps explain who Martin is pretty well!
