"Super" Fun, New Twist on an Old 100th Day of School Project {A freebie, too!}

My students love superheroes this year, so I'm always trying to incorporate them whenever I can into things we do in the classroom to keep their motivational levels working at optimal levels!
We usually do some sort of 100th day collection, or 100th day project, but I just didn't want to do the same old thing this year, hence the reason I created the Superhero 100th Day Cape Family Project.  If my kids are half as excited as I am to share this project with them, I'm golden!  But, knowing my students, they are going to go ga ga over this!  I can just see it now. I had my own kindergartner be my model and when I was explaining the project to him, his eyes just kept getting bigger and bigger and then he said,


 "You mean I could be a superhero at school all day long?"
Why, yes, my boy, that is exactly what I mean and thank you for giving me the reaction I expected from a typical, superhero loving boy!  Ha ha, that's my boy, he picks things up quick. 
So, since I can do nothing in my life simple, this project has become, well, a project for me, too. 
 
Get some plastic party cloths at the dollar store and cut them into 2x3 rectangles. (You can get 8+ out of each cloth which makes for a very cheap, yet EXCITING project).
 
Print off the letter below that I have provided as a FREEBIE:

 
Bag the cape and letter up for students to take their cape home protected in a sandwich sized ziplock bag.  If you get the whole kit, you can add parent tips, a superhero ten frame to help students organize, AND a cute label to the front that even has a spot for you to write the due date.
 
Here is my sample that I made. It has exactly 1oo letters on it- go ahead count them! :)
I will be adding these boas as a decorative addition...only because I got a huge pile of them and have been dying to figure out a fun use for them!  You can actually just tie the plastic around your students' necks as pictured in the top picture of my sweet boy!  If you decide to get all fancy like I am with your capes, I can tell you I just used clear shipping tape to affix the boas to the top!
If you are like me and don't ever want (well, actually, can't) do anything simple..you can grab this kit kit that includes all of the materials you would need to implement the 100th Day of School Superhero Cape Project (well, except for the actual capes!) tomorrow. It has letters to parents, tips for both teachers and parents, labels to send home, reminder notices, planning pages for students, writing activities for students, a superhero ten frame to help students organize their project and more! This will be a 100th Day your students won't soon forget if you let them create and wear a cape just like a superhero at school! This project takes a new twist on an old project and your students will love sharing their capes the whole day as they walk around school with 100 objects on their back! Be sure to buy additional licenses so that your whole school can participate in the project together (or at least your whole grade level-each class could create different colored capes to represent their class).
Let your students be superheroes for a day!
 Click below for more information.
If you do this project, be sure to send your pictures along to me!  I would love to add a page of pictures of samples for teachers to send home to the parents as well.  I think that doing that for the Disguise the Turkey and GBM Family projects really inspired tons more creativity than usual.  Thank you!

  3. So cute! Found a typo though... mid-way through, "own" should be "home"!

  6. This is great! Our 100th day isn't until next week so this is totally doable.

    I did want to let you know that there are 2 little mistakes on the freebie letter. I know you would want to fix. The first is that there is an = sign up in the title where is says Let's make a one-of-a-kind... the equal sign is between the words one and of. The second is here - (Feel free to make a cape out of another material you have at own if you want to). I think it should say home not own.
    You are so creative and this activity does really capture the imaginations of our little boys especially. Thanks for thinking of them! (I'm sure your little guy tells you this often, but if not know that he is blessed by your creativity.)
