100th Day of School

Our Kinders were so excited to celebrate the 100th Day of School.  We spent the entire day doing fun-filled activities.  Here are just a few:

  • Letting students play "teacher", leading us in counting to 100 by 1's, 5's, and 10's.
  • Making 100's Day hats 
  • Reading number stories in between every activity
  • Moving to 100 - every set of 10 is a new movement (jumping jacks, clapping, stomping, etc.)
  • 100's Day Fruit Loop necklaces 
    100 Fruit loops
  • Presenting their 100's day homework projects 
    Family project:  Use 100 objects to create a poster

  • Finding the missing number

  • "If I had $100 I would buy..." - writing and illustrating what they would buy if they had 100 dollars. 
  • 100's Day Centers: 10 stickers, 10 green bingo dotters, 10 red bingo dotters, 10 cheerios, 10 beads, 10 white paint polka dots, 10 green paint polka dots, 10 rainbow name writing, 10 shapes, and 10 macaroni noodles. 
  • 100's Day Trail Mix - a class favorite!!  Parents were so generous to donate items such as chocolate chips, pretzels, skittles, popcorn, raisins, cheeze-its, fruit loops, m&m's, and fruit snacks.  In the years past, I would set out 10 plates of different items, and each student would come up to get 10 pieces off each plate - coming out to be 100 pieces of trail mix.  This year, we didn't have enough time to do it like that.  So, we mixed the 10 different items all together into a large bowl - which the kids found so funny :-).  I gave each kid a baggy with his/her name on it, and a numbered sticker 1-25.  When I called their number, they got to come up and get a cup full of mix and pour it into their baggy.  They LOVED it.  While getting packed up for the day, the kids got to sit at their tables and enjoy their snacks.  I will probably do it this way next year, too!
