25 Mar The 100th Day of School
“Hip-Hip Hooray! We’ve reached 100 Days!”
The hundredth day of school is one of my favorites. It’s a day where we go ALL-OUT doing lots of fun things related to the number 100. I think I have as much fun as the kids do. I’m also wishing right now that I had taken more pictures on this day but I will share the few I do have and explain the rest to you. 🙂
The 100th Day Hat
On the hundredth day of school I prep the room by rearranging the tables and chairs before the students arrive. This little change up makes for a more dramatic entrance as the students come in.
When the student’s arrive, they first color their 100th day hat. Below is a video demonstration of our 100th day hat.
The 100th Day Banner
As they finish their hats, students can then transition to helping with coloring our “100th Days Brighter” banner. I make this banner from butcher paper and my printable template found in my “Everything You Need for the 100th Day of School” bundle here.
The 100th Day Poem
Following that, we then transition to our literacy block, I incorporate activities that include the theme of the 100th day.
One of those activities is the 100th day poem that we read together with hand motions. The students then glue this poem into their poetry journals and we go on a sight word hunt to find words we know in the poem (read more about poetry journals here).
The 100th Day Write the Room
Another fun literacy activity I incorporate is Write the Room where the students go looking for 100 words around the room to write down on thier word list. Do they ever actually find and write 100 words… NO! But it sure is fun trying. I set a time for 10-15 minutes and let them find as many words around the room as they can. After the timer goes off, we see who found the most words and then I challenge them to finish at home if want to.
The 100th Day Gumball Bingo daubers
During math, I set bingo daubers around the room on tables. I explain that they are going to count to 100 but we are going to change colors for every 10 that we stamp. I like to have us count all together and then I say “switch!” when it’s time to go to the next color and they rotate around the tables.
Here is an example of the printable below.
The 100th Day Exercises
This activity will make everyone laugh as you work through each of these exercises! We complete 10 exercises for 10 reps and then check it off the list.
The 100th Day MAth Snack
On the 10th day, we also have loads of fun counting 100 yummy snacks. We do this by collecting 10 pieces of each snack on our snack mats. We skip count by 10s to make sure they have one hundred pieces. Tip: Prior to the 100th day, have parents sign up to send in a snack to share for this activity.
We use a graphic organizer we use to help count our snacks.
The 100th Day science Water drops
For our science time we predict how full a cup would be if it had 100 drops of water in it. Then we count 100 drops to see if our prediction was accurate or needs to be adjusted. Last, we write about it!
The 100th day of school can be a fun and educational day the the student will remember.
