Bucket Fillers

This term we are looking at becoming bucket fillers.  I first saw the idea in a book by Carol McCloud but having delved more into the topic I found that Dr. Donald O. Clifton wrote a book in the 1960's titled "Dipper and Bucket".  You can find more information at this website - Bucket Fillers.
The following clipart depicts the bucket.  The original piece was created at A3 as a .png (but check your page set up before printing and change to A3 as it often defaults back to A4).  The .pdf poster prints on 4 A3 pages (again check the page set up before printing).  Click on the image to open link to the download page.
Below is the poster with a black background.

Children Posters

These children will be used as part of a Bucket Filling display I am setting up next term.  The .png files will size to A3.  I have also made them into a .pdf poster file (4 pages).  If you set the page set up to A3 the total 4 pages will size to A1 (594x841 cm).  Click on the images to open the download site.
Leave a comment if you would like these in different colours and I will try to help.

100th Day Posters

These are the posters I use to countdown the number of days until our 100th day celebration and then to see if we have 200 days in our school year.  They are laminated and then we can mark them off each day with a whiteboard marker.

Calendar Maths

We are counting down the school days until the 100th day when we will have a celebration day.  For a maths warm up we record the number on this chart and complete the activities.  The second poster is for larger numbers and I use this after the first 100 days.

100 Days of Learning

Yesterday was our 100th Day of learning at school for 2013.  We had some challenges to complete by ourselves and as a class.  We blew up over 100 balloons but when we came to count them there were only 93!  Some had gone pop!  Here we are in our 100 day smarter prince and princess crowns.
Here are some of the activities we completed.  Click on the image to open the download site.
