1-2-3 Come Do Some More 100 Day Activities With Me
Counting to 100 on 100 Day is obvious, but simply counting can be a bit tedious. With that in mind, I designed some quick, easy and fun activities to count your way through 100 Day.
I designed 100 Day "Funshine" specifically for a 100 Day celebration, however, you can use it anytime of the year, as I've included 4, different center suns.
The 10 strips of sunshine "rays" have 10 numbers on them. The counting by 5s and 10s are in red & blue, so children can visually see the patterns as they skip count.
For 1st grade standards, there are 2 additional "rays" for counting to 120.
Another "Print & Go" craftivity that's an interesting way to count to 100, is the 100 Day Star Student Badge featuring 100 stars!
Simply run the star pattern off on yellow construction paper, and the "ribbon" template off on white.
Students trim and glue their "Star Student" badge together, then count the 99 little stars as they color them.
To make sure they've done that, have students jot down how many stars are on the big star (40) and how many are on the ribbons (30) for the left one, and (29) on the right, with the big yellow star of their badge, making the 100th star.
Another counting option, that also reinforces colors, graphing, plus 2D shapes while counting 100 of them, is the Shapin' Up On 100 Day "Graphtivity".
There are black & white pattern pages, as well as a color set for teachers.
I've also included a blank 100, if you want your students to draw, dot or sticker, 10 different items (10 times each) inside the numbers, to make their own creation.
Completed projects make a sweet 100 Day crown. Simply attach to a sentence strip or piece of bulletin board border.
The worksheet can also stand alone, if your kiddos aren't into crowns.
Finally, Practice skip counting by 10s to 100, with these quilt block bookmarks.
I've included a blank template, where students write in the numbers, as well as one with the skip counted numbers filled in, in both black line & full color.
Choose which one you want your children to have, then for some non-standard, units of measurement practice, have kiddos use their bookmarks to fill in the measurement worksheet.
Today's featured FREEBIE is a Rip and Tear 100 Craftivity.
Ripping and tearing paper is a great fine motor skill that strengthens finger and hand muscles.
Completed projects make an awesome bulletin board too. I've included a "Happy 100 Day" poster for the center of your display.
Simply run off the 100 pattern and give children a variety of colorful paper strips to choose from.
Children can choose 2 colors and create an AB-AB pattern, or 3 for an ABC-ABC one, or skip patterning and have them make a rainbow 100.
Well that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by.
I hope you found something useful here to make your 100 Day celebration extra special. Wishing you a fun-fulled day.
