As you can see by the pictures below, our one hundredth day was a busy one. We answered most of the questions the students had and a few more that they thought of throughout the day.
As the students were working, they tweeted out each “story” of one hundred using the hash tag #100storiesof100″ (the students actually made that hash tag up themselves). We knew we wouldn’t be able to get one hundred tweets from just our class, but with the help of our friends in other classes who were also celebrating the one hundredth day of school this week, we were actually able to collect 112 student tweets. I have put these tweets (minus retweets and teacher organizational tweets) into a Storify.
The students were excited to get 100 tweets and poured over the tweets during their independent reading time. There is nothing like meaningful text to inspire children to read! Here are a couple of sample tweets from the day.
