Hip Hip Hooray It's Our 100th Day!

100 Men
This is our sign we hang on the door.
The 100th Day of School is a huge milestone in kindergarten for the students and the teacher.  We spend a whole week getting ready for this celebration.  We start off the week by having each student make a 100 Man.  They count his body by 10's and when he is all complete he makes 100.  You can find him in our Winter Pack.

Each student also makes a 100th Day of School Book.  In the book, they are learning what is equal to 100 cents, making a personal connection by drawing 100 things they could eat and what they will look like when they are 100 years old.  These books are so much fun and because the text is predictable, the students can't wait to take them home and read them to their families.
This is what I will look like when I am 100!
I can eat 100...

Our 100th Day Celebration would not be complete without reading Miss Bindergarten Celebrates the 100th Day of Kindergarten by Joseph Slate and Ashley Wolff.  When we are done with the story, each student sorts their own bag of 100 items just like in the story.  Click here to get this free sorting mat. 
Sorting the 100 items each student brought in from home.

100th Day Snack
Our last and final 100th Day activity is making our 100 item snack.  Each student gets to count out 10 Froot Loops, 10 chocolate chips, 10 raisins, 10 pretzel sticks, 10 pieces of popcorn, 10 marshmallows, 10 M & M's, 10 goldfish, 10 teddy grahams and 10 Kix.  We have them put it all in a Ziploc bag with a tag that explains what the snack contains.
