101st Day of School!

This summer, I stumbled upon the CUTEST idea for celebrating the 101st day of school, instead of the 100th day!  The day is based entirely on the 101 Dalmatians and even the students dress in black and white spots!  I got this wonderful idea from Mrs. Moore's Busy Bees!  My kids had so much fun and I definitely plan on making it a yearly tradition!  To add to our 101st Day fun, I created a few Dalmatian themed activities that you are welcome to download below!  :)

Book Page - I took each student's picture in front of the "dog house" bulletin board and had them write about their favorite part of the day.  We used our writing and photos to create a class book!

Dalmatian Math -  Students roll a die 101 times and tally their results.  Then, they use their data to answer questions and to create a bar graph.


Estimation Station-  Each student guessed how many dog treats were in the estimation jar.  The student with the closest estimation won a prize!
