100th day of School: Homeschool Resources



We made it to 100 days of home school  bliss!  Well, not so sure about the bliss, but my son had a great expectation waiting for today.  I gave him homework the night before. His assignment was to find something in the house that would fit in a zip lock bag and was to count exactly 100 of the item. He was free to roam the house for ideas.  He did it in secret and could not wait to show me his first homework project. He hid his bag in a shoe box and brought a bag of 100 q-tips.

 We've had a countdown on the wall of our home school corner counting each day of school. This helped with his math and we followed the calendar each day to help with his anxiety over which day of the week it was.  I researched pinterest and found some great resources for free.

Teachers pay teachers.com is a great resource for home school teachers. I pinned it on my board if you want the link.  The whole kit was a free download and provided so much to do that we didn't get it all done today.  Of course, we could have finished if we didn't have a toddler to deal with and her little escapades today and myself getting a stress/allergy headache!

My son LOVES Cars and these popped up on our local online garage sale.  These were priced at 100 pennies each. He used some of his birthday money and saved several 100 pennies buying them 2nd hand.  He said he loved scratches and dents. He said it they would get scratches anyway and was thrilled to find these!

Make sure you give yourself plenty of time to plan and research. I have a board on my pinterest where I post my finds so I can easily access them. Less stress for me!  Happy 100th day of teaching!  Reward yourself with some Ghiradelli Chocolate or a Nap! You deserve it!
