100’s Day

To make life simpler for all of our Kindergarten teacher’s sanity, my team this year decided that we would each set up two activities in our classroom and rotate our kids around.  Here are the activities for tomorrow.  We are doing this in two parts so that the 1/2 day students are able to participate in at least one of the two sessions.

room #1 something out of Mailbox magazine dealing with 100’s day and busses?  Not sure, it’s not my room! 🙂

room #2 (my room) AM: 100’s day trail mix  ( I made 11×17 sheets of construction paper with 10, 10 grids on them and as the children pick from the 10 different foods available to them, they put them on one of the grids)  Their whole sheet has to be full before they can get the OK to dump it into a bag.

10 foods:


fruit loops


chocolate chips

butterscotch chips

round pretzels

folded pretzels




PM: we will string 100 fruit loops or cheerios on a string, and then make necklaces

room #3 AM stamping to 100 with stamps on paper

PM: making things from 100 somethings (legos, blocks, etc.)

room #4 AM: 100’s day headbands

PM: a 100’s day booklet, I think

In the morning, we are all having our children write to 100 and we also have a level D reader from Reading A-Z.com that we downloaded for 100’s day that we will be sharing with them.

We will also be reading several 100’s day books including Miss Bindergarten’s 100th Day of Kindergarten, The 100th Day, 100 Angry Ants, 100 Days of School, Emily’s 100th Day

What do you do to celebrate the 100th Day?  Does anyone celebrate the 101st day?  I’ve watched 101 Dalmatians with my kids some years as a treat.

Next week, we will be celebrating Chinese New Year and learning about Giant Pandas–it will be fun! 🙂

  1. Oooh… the 100th day comes early for you! It’s not until sometime in early February here (depending on snow days between now and then)! I’ve got a post focusing on this with a few different books coming up next week… I believe on Thursday… check it out, maybe they’re be some ideas for you for next year or better yet… if you want, I can pass along the post as an email tonight.
