Throughout the school year there are some common and not so common days to celebrate in your classroom with your students. This page is a work in progress.
Our goal is to list and provide resources for special days that teachers can celebrate in the classroom. If you know of any days we are missing, please comment below and we will be sure to add the day. We also welcome guest blogs about days and lessons.
We will list the special days by month. Some days like the 100th day of school will be celebrated on different days depending on the start of the school year. These days are for the year 2013.
We hope you enjoy!

Celebrating learning is great any day, but the 100th day of the school year is a great event to embrace. With the internet there are so many great resources to help a teacher plan for this wonderful day.
Here is a great activity from a 1st grade teaching team to celebrate the 1ooth day of the school year.
We also have found some great links for many different grade levels to help teachers plan to make the 100th day of school one to enjoy and remember. Hopefully you find them useful!

100th Day of School
We celebrate our 100th day of school on Wednesday, February 6, (unless we have a snow day). We will be celebrating this day with many activities involving concepts if zero, tens and of course 100.
Each child should do one or both of the following:

  • Each child should bring in a collection of 100 things. (I will have 100 pennies.)
  • Bring in something about 100 years old.

We hope you all have fun with these activities.
It is FREE for parents to search for a teacher in their area. Please help us find ONE MORE teacher who tutors!
