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 Counting.

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.

DVD Review

Rosemary Wells' "Emily's First 100 Days of School" the DVD features illustrated examples of each number, a constant crawl at the bottom (like the headline news crawl) showing the number drawn as well as spelled out. After every ten numbers is "BNN: Bunny News Network!" a short break that divides the numbers into sets of ten.

A great story to get excited about numbers.

100 Steps

How far is 100 steps? Take the children outside and pace off together 100 steps.

100 Day Neckaces with Circles
Need: Cereal for stringing and yarn

Cereal Necklace 100Lay out a paper with 10 circles (poster board thickness) with a hole in them. Children count out and place 10 pieces of cereal 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 Beans In A Jar

Set out three jars (a, b, and c) with beans in them. Only one jar has 100 beans. The children estimate which jar has 100. At the end reveal the jar with 100 beans.

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.

100 Balloons
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.

) Use helium balloons and bring them outside and 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.
