I know it's a bit early, but for some of you who started school in August, 100 Day will soon be here. I wanted to whip this 100 Day idea off so that it's in plenty of time for you to make these 100 Day booklets so you can start this activity 10 days BEFORE you celebrate 100 Day or 9 days if you want to write the last 10 words to = 100 words on 100 Day!
Challenge your students to try and learn 10 new words each day before the big day and by 100 Day they will have learned 100 new words! Wow.
Or... you could choose to review 10 words each day that you’ve been working on since whenever. This is great for word wall words, CVC words, or spelling words.
Run off my cover, or have students create their own “My Word Book” covers by stamping letters with your letter stamps or cutting out letters from magazines, like a ransome note and then spelling out the title on their favorite half sheet of colored construction paper.
Staple their cover along with 10 sheets of writing paper and the other ½ of their construction paper for a back, and you’ve got a nifty word book in a jiffy!
When your students have completed their 100 words for 100 Day booklets, reward their worderful word work with a special 100 Day Whiz Kid Word certificate. I have 2 to choose from. They can glue it as the last page of their booklet.

I LOVE this book. It’s a Cat in the Hat “Bright and Early” reader for the “youngest of the young.”
These stories are “brief and funny” the words are “few and easy” and have a “happy catchy rhythm”. This one rhymes. The pictures are colorful and perfect clues for your emergent readers!
Happy soon-to-be 100 Day! For more fun activities to celebrate this great day check out my FREE 100 Day bulletin board ideas and my FREE 85-page 100 Day Unit.
