I know that some teachers have already celebrated 100 Day, but for quite a few, that day is coming up around Valentine’s Day.
There have been many requests on the various web rings that I frequent, for some “different” ideas and themes, so I came up with Ants a few weeks ago.
Start your day by surprising your students with a 100 Day Party Smartie card on their desk.
Increase their finger dexterity and fold paper to form the number 100 and make a "growth" card comparing their weight and height from the 1st day of school to the 100th day.
I LOVE hippo’s and thought the above play on words would be appropriate. Harley and Helga were fun to draw. I hope you enjoy them. I designed the following hippo-riffic activities around them:
Trace, cut and glue the mixed up words to spell one hundred for a different kind of skill sheet.
Hippo Todd is fond of odd numbers and Steven (my son’s name,) likes even numbers. Have fun filling in the appropriate ones all the way to 100 by playing this “Speed” game.
I haven’t seen anyone make 100 tallies and that’s certainly a great way to count by 5’s. Can you accomplish this feat in 100 seconds?
Get in some estimation exercise by guessing how many candy hearts will fill up Harley’s mouth, then do some math extensions by the ton!
Make a class book, pencil topper, necklace, valentine, and two puppets—one from a lunch bag and one for your fingers.
Puppets are great for showing spatial directions, identifying body parts, counting, helping to retell a story, and even doing the Hippo Pokey with!

Whatever you’re doing for 100-Day, I hope it’s simply hippo-licious!
