Hundredth Day Heroes and a Super Sale!

What a fun 100th day we had this year! I decided to change things up by surprising my firsties with a super-hero themed bash, and it was sooo much fun! I had them dress up in their 100 year old costumes like I have always done in the past, but this year, they received a letter from Zero the Hero explaining that they were not really 100 year old ladies and gentlemen--they were Hundredth Day Heroes in disguise!  You should have heard the gasps when we read those words--gotta love first graders!

Here is what the letter looked like...


Anyways, Zero the Hero (Head Superhero, of course) gave the students several tasks to complete in order to Defeat Dr. Double Digit and save the number 100!  They were all contained in specially-labeled envelopes, and the kids really enjoyed opening up each one to see what their next task was. The activities included creating Superhero Capes with 100 designs on them, making a Superhero Snack Mix, hunting for Hershey's Kisses during a Super-Sweet Search, building Power Towers, and more!  Here are a few pics...


 

 
At the end of the day, my students received a second letter from Zero the Hero congratulating them on their hard work in Defeating Dr. Double Digit, and they were rewarded with Pinterest-inspired Tootsie Pop Superheroes!


It was definitely an exciting day, and it was nice to have a new twist on some of my favorite 100th day activities!  I've put all of the activities and templates into a kit, so if you'd like to have a Superhero themed 100th day, you can too!  You can find it by clicking the picture below to head directly to my TPT store!

 
Speaking of TPT, this weekend definitely deserves a triple yay status! Friday ended up being a snow day for me--the only one we've had this year, it is Super-bowl weekend, and Super Sale weekend on TeachersPayTeachers! If you're interested in snagging some goodies (including my new Hundredth Day Heroes Kit) at a HUGE 28% off, just shop at your favorite stores and enter the code SUPER during checkout! I've been filling up my cart already!
