100th Day

One of my favorite days of the school year is the 100th day!  Here are a few things we do in my classroom for the 100th day.

A 100th Day Tie FREEBIE.  Students draw 100 lines or polkadots on their tie.  These look absolutely adorable with our collared shirt school uniforms.

A 100 cup structure.  I gave the students a few different sized cups.  I can't recall where the large red cups and the mini-white cups came from, but the mini red cups can be found at Dollar Tree.  My students last year loved this so much  that I left it out as a play center the entire rest of the year.  

100th Day Hat- the students will place 10 stickers on a strip of paper and make 10 strips.  They will attach the strips to a sentence strip and have the strips dangle from the hat. 

Hundreds Chart Floor Puzzle- by Totally Sweet Math Centers by Tabitha. I LOVE this center!  The students get so much out of it and they love it!  Students are able to use their knowledge of number sense to put the pieces together.  If you notice the strategy in this picture, putting the tens place together as a guide.  What smart kids!

When I Am 100 Mini-Book- by Maria Manore Gavin.  Students read this predictable text and glue the word when into the booklet.  

What Does it Weigh?  Before the 100th day, ask parents to send in bags of 100 items.  Give the students a balance scale and have them compare the weights of the different items.  

What kinds of things do you do for the 100th day?
