1-2-3 Come Do Some More 100 Day Activities With Me!
Yesterday's blog article was getting a bit long, so I didn't get to finish sharing my other 100-Day themed packets with you, so here's the rest.
Do you read the book One Hundred Hungry Ants for 100 day? It's a cute read aloud that my Y5's enjoyed. Because of the popularity of that book, I decided to make some 100-Day activities with an ant theme to help wish you a "f-ANT-tastic" 100 Day.

Another favorite of my Y5's was the song The Ants Go Marching. Click on the link to show the sweet cartoon of this song on YouTube.
Do your students have "ants in their pants?" For an interesting way to count to 100 by 10's, have them make 10 groups of 10 ant "patches" on their scrapbook-paper blue jeans.
When they have completed their 100-Day work, they'll be real "smartie pants." As an incentive, have them work towards earning a pack of Smartie candies.
They'll also have fun de-coding an importANT message to reveal a mystery picture that turns out to be a heart. Click on the link to view/download the 100 Day With Ants packet.
Another popular book with elementary children is The Very Hungry Caterpillar. The gist of the story is that the caterpillar eats a variety of goofy things, like an ice cream cone, before he "falls asleep" in his chrysalis.
I thought it would be fun for your kiddo's to choose ten foods (there are 60+ picture choices) that they wanted their caterpillar to eat, and then glue the food-circles on their construction paper caterpillar. If the caterpillar eats 10 of each one of those items, he will have eaten 100 things!
The packet also includes an easy reader that reviews time to the hour. (CCSS: 1.MD.3) Click on the link to view/download The Very Hungry Caterpillar 100 Day Activities.
Counting to 100 isn't quite so tedious when you count 100 toppings on a pizza.
Since pizza is a favorite food of children, I decided to create some 100-Day pizza-themed activities.
The packet includes an easy reader, where students circle the capital letters, and add end punctuation.
They trace and write the words and numbers and then cut & glue the appropriate picture to their page.
The booklet also reviews shapes, and includes a pizza "craftivity" (pictured) + graphing extensions. Click on the link to view/download the 100-Day Pizza packet.
Finally, my personal favorite is the Hip-Hippo-Ray It's 100 Day packet.
I LOVE drawing these pudgy "little" guys and hope your kiddo's will enjoy them too.
The packet is chock full of all sorts of 100 Day craftivities.
They can make a hippo paper bag or finger puppet, a 100 Day necklace, and do a variety of other fun 100 Day worksheets, like this Odd Todd hippo number game. Click on the link to view/download the 100 Day Hippo-themed packet.
Thanks for visiting today. I hope you can stop by tomorrow when I finish up with 100 Day activities and post a few more FREEBIES. Feel free to PIN away.
