I started the school year with great intentions of tracking exactly how many “school days” we had completed so that we too could have one of those cool “100th day” celebrations I had heard about. Our state does not require a particular number of school days nor are we required to track or report “attendance” in our homeschool, so it was purely my own motivation driving me. Obviously it was not a large amount of motivation, because my cute checklist fell out of use around day 20!
I had my planner out today to count how many weeks we had left before we take a summer break (we’ll do some school over the summer, but a much lighter load), and how this corresponded to the number of lessons we have left in RightStart Math level C. (I think we’ll have somewhere between 10 and 20 lessons left in the level by the end of May).
On a whim, I decided to look at the calendar and attempt to count how many days of school we have completed. While I am not 100% sure of my accuracy, I think today actually marked our 100th day. Whoops!
Not being one to want to miss out on a celebration, I think we’ll have a slightly belated “100th day” celebration next week and celebrate “Leap Day” (aka February 29th) as well.
There are so many ways to celebrate 100 days — many of them involving math of course! Here’s one link I liked with many, many ideas!
I also created a board on pinterest with some of the links and ideas I have found so far for celebrating both 100 days and Leap Day.
Do you celebrate 100 days of your homeschool year? Are you going to do anything special for Leap Day next week?
Hi Kirsten! We’ve never celebrated the 100th day of school before — but I’m considering doing that this year, as an exciting milestone for my sons. We’re around day 80, so I have a few more days to think about it!! Did you decide what you’re going to do?
No, I’m still mulling over ideas…I’ll probably procrastinate and figure it out on Sunday night…or the night before. 🙂
[…] We celebrated Leap Day with a “fun school” day. Despite my previous aspirations, we did not do a 100 days celebration as well. Between the amount of time I was able to find to […]
