This is one of my favorite days of the year.
It is perfect for having fun in 100 ways by maintaining curriculum rigor.
Here is a list of my favorite read aloud for before and during the 100th day.
I also include comprehension activities for the stories:
Jake's 100th Day
100th Day Worries
The Night Before...
Here are two samples...
Math is perfect for this special day...
And yes there is lots and lots of writing...
Each year I divide the class into teams and we see who can make the most words. Can they make 100?
I have a book the students can make at the end of the day or the next day sharing all the things they did.
To share with you what my class does I included a written description:
100 Day T Shirts...Students make shirts with 100 items on them.
We take pictures, write, and parade with our 100 Day hats!
We estimate and prepare a craft sharing happy about the 100th Day!
There is a letter for parents explaining AND reminders.
To build the excitement about this special day I keep a countdown on the door.
There is one for you in the packet.
And we can't forget activities related to 100 cents...
A game for partners...
and read the clue, color the number, what do you make?
The freebie which is also included in the packet is all about spinning for 100!
