Surfing the Net with Kids FREE Newsletter
#1. January 26, 2011
The topic of today’s newsletter (as you probably already know from the subject line!) is One Hundred Days of School. In addition to my usual site reviews on the subject (where I review my five favorite 100 days of school websites) I have started a brand new website on the topic!
Here’s where I need your help. Do you have a favorite classroom activity that you’ve used to celebrate one hundred days of school? Do you have a few minutes to tell me about it? I’d love to hear from you. Ideas, activities, lesson plans can be submitted for publication (under your byline, of course) on the new site here:
Or, if your activity is already published on the Internet, you can submit a site review, with a short annotation and a link to the page, here:
Thanks! I look forward to seeing your ideas.
See ya on the Net,
Barbara J. Feldman

P.S. The new site is still under construction, but it does have some printable coloring pages, a few dot-to-dot puzzles, and a video gallery. You can see it here: http://www.surfnetkids.com/100schooldays
#2. One Hundred Days of School
by Barbara J. Feldman
One Hundred Days of School Printable (** for premium members only)
Depending on your school calendar, your one-hundredth day of school is probably coming up soon. Many teachers use it as an opportunity to teach lower elementary grades number sense, or just for the fun of it. Explore these websites for online and offline activities, all about the number “100.”
Enchanted Learning: One Hundredth Day of School
Enchanted Learning has an awesome collection of project ideas for the celebration of one hundred days of school, such as Name 100 Animals, Write Your Name for 100 Seconds, Name 100 Countries or Collect 100 Cans for Charity. Some of the printable worksheets, including the cute One Hundred Days of School printable book, are only available to paid members, but there are still plenty of free resources here.
Little Giraffes Teaching Ideas: 100th Day of School
Kindergarten teacher Mrs. Flanagan has so many fun hundredth-day-of-school activities that her class celebrates for a whole week. I like her collection because she includes photos of the activities, although not much in the way of annotation. “We estimated how many paper clips we could drop in a full glass of water before the water spilled over. Can you believe the water didn’t spill over, even after we put 100 clips in it?” For more one-hundredth day activity ideas, follow the links to A to Z Teacher Stuff in the header of the page.
Mrs. Meacham’s Classroom Snapshots: 100th Day of School
Mrs. Meacham is an elementary school teacher in Wisconsin, who enjoys creating websites in her free time. Here she shares some of the activities that she’s done in her classroom for the hundredth day of school. “100 Words: Students get a clip board and a pencil and roam the room to find and write down 100 words. No duplicate words are allowed.” For most activities, Meacham includes printable worksheets, although a few of the links are broken. My favorite click is the printable six-page activity book, “My 100th Day of School Book.”
