100 days of school

decorate a letter. You may want to draw a pencil line to divide the
letters so that one group does not decorate all the letters).

Counting to the 100th or 101st day of school
Starting at on the first day of school, we put a
"spot" on the wall (we happen to be counting to 101st day
of school to have a black & white party) then each day after we
put a new spot up. Every "5" is black and the children clap
when we are counting and land on the black spot. After counting to
the last spot, we count only the 5's...this helps the children learn
to count by one's, five's and ten's.
On the 101'st day of school, everything we do is
black and white...and in the amount of 101. Snack, balloon bottom
popping, crazy hats that have 101 items on them, 101 gems on a large
101...and of course, watching the moving 101 Dalmations! Happy

Have older children help blow up 100 balloons. Place the balloons in the gym and have the young children pop them as you time how long it takes.
Cut out 100 dots and write a number 1-100 on each
circle. Place the dots on the floor with the number side turned down.
Play music and have the children move around from dot to dot. When
the music stops, the child standing on a dot with 100 on the underneath
side wins. Gather up the dots and have the children turn around and
hide their face's before the dots are put down again.
100 Day Neckaces with Circles
Need: Cereal for stringing and yarn
Lay out a paper with 10 circles (poster board thickness) with a hole in them. Children count out and place 10 pieces of ceral on each circle. Children lace each set of 10 cereals place a circle between each set. If they forget to put the circle on the string they can start over. When done ask what is a quick way to count to 100. Using the necklace have the child count to 100 by 10s. Tie a knot in the string and wear the necklace home. After necklaces are completed wash hands, pass out snack, and have snack time.
100 Day Necklaces
Need: Fruit Loops and yarn
Have students count out sets of 10 FruitLoops.
For example 10 purple, 10 orange, etc. Once they have 10 sets start
lacing them to make a 100 Day Necklace. I usually start a few days
before the 100 day so we can finish them. Contributed By: Lisa
Need: balloons, string, permanent marker and a
lot of air!
Have parents or older students help you blow up
100 balloons. They can be of any shape, size and color.
1) Number the balloons from 1-100 and play a game
catching the balloons and naming their numbers.
2) Make a graph chart and sort the balloons by
either shape, color, size, etc.

let them go. You may want to add a message to the end of the balloon
string for the person who may find it. Contributed By: Karen S.
