100th Day of School
: Motivate and inspire your students as they celebrate being in school for 100 days. This is a 'Kids Connecting to Quotes" pack where every quote has to do with the number 100. This pack uses the same format as my Quote of the Week Pack, which can be found HERE
For this 100th day of school school quote reflections pack, students are presented with 7 different quotes. For each quote, students read it, think about it, write what they think it means, and then they write how they can apply it to their life. This is a 2 page activity sheet, printing on the front and back if you choose to use all 7 quotes. You could just use the front if you are limited on time.

I have also included all 7 quotes on an 8.5 x 11 (portrait view) sheet with a colorful background. You can project these as you discuss or even hang them on a bulletin board along with the activity sheets the kids complete. In addition, the posters are great to refer to for the last half of the year.
My thinking with this activity is for students to complete it individually and then come back to the group to discuss it with the class or a small group. Of course, you could have the kids partner up or work in small groups. Simply have them complete it however you would like.
There is no answer key because students are writing the meanings in their own words. As long as they can defend how they determined the meaning, then it should be correct.
I don't really see this as a graded activity, it's more to be used to build morale/character and provide something for your students to reflect on as they progress into the second half of the school year. Hopefully these quotes will give them something positive to think about. In addition, you can refer back to these quotes if needed.
For example, one of the quotes is "“You will never achieve 100% if ninety-nine percent is okay.” (by Will Smith). Later on in the year, if a student is not putting forth 100% effort, this might be a quote you bring up again to the class.
Be creative! Feel free to use these in your classroom however you would like.
