A Fabulous 100th Day of School


My class celebrated the 100th Day of School this week and it was a blast! The highlight of our celebration featured the fashions of 100 objects.
That's right... all students in the class created a special t-shirt for the occasion and proudly wore 100 objects on their shirt. Some students used markers or paint to create 100 images, others glued 100 objects onto their shirts... no matter the decoration, everyone was incredibly proud to show off their creations.

I was able to snap a few photos along the way... we had everything from fuzzy balls to puppy prints, smiley faces, sports equipment, and even a monster with 100 google eyes!

The t-shirts were great and so thrilling for the students to share. 
But we didn't stop there...
 Each student also created a special hat for the 100th Day of School
The best part? Decorating the hat with 100 stickers!

Once each child was properly outfitted in 100th Day attire, we had a FASHION SHOW! 

The students created a walkway through the center of the classroom and proudly showed off their fabulous ensembles. Project Runway has nothing on these kids. Tim Gunn should have been there to see it... nobody can "make it work" like these kids!

I have received DOZENS of requests from teachers asking me to share my parent note which explains the t-shirt project to them. You can download a free editable template for this in my TpT store. The file also includes an information card that students complete at home and you can read during the fashion show.

One of my students is known as our resident "animal expert." He proudly displayed his shirt with 100 animals. It was revealed during the fashion show that his favorite animal is the skunk and he challenged the other students to find it on his shirt.
 The class LOVED hunting for the skunk picture!

    1. I'm sure he would be very willing to sign his mom up to make animal shirts for everyone... his mom would probably be less-than-thrilled :)

  4. I love the 100th day shirts! Did you send a note home with directions? Would it be possible to get a copy of that?

  5. Our school does this too. My daughter did 100 finger prints, she got teachers, and friends to paint their finger and put it on her shirt. It was a huge undertaking but she had so much fun asking everyone. Now, my son and I are trying to figure out what he's going to do! Thanks for the great ideas!
