## It's Time To Celebrate: More 100 Day Activities

1-2-3 Come Celebrate 100 Day With Me

Even though 100 Day was like a party for my Y5's,  we still covered all of our subject areas and standards.  I spent countless hours designing things that would fit the various subjects throughout our day using that particular theme.

With that in mind, I wanted to design some other activities besides all of the math extensions that go on for 100 Day, so I thought up an "It's Time To Celebrate" game, which reinforces time to the hour.  (CCSS 1.MD.3)

Students choose a partner or work in groups of 3-4 taking turns rolling one dice.  Whatever number they roll, they trace the digital time and then write that number on their analog clock.

After they have filled in numbers 1-6 (times to the hour) they roll 2 dice and add them together to get numbers 7-12.  The first one to complete their "It's Time To Celebrate" recording sheet, is the winner and receives a certificate of praise.

For your writing block, or Daily 5 time, use these 4 different 100-Day writing prompts.  To help get your students started, I designed them with a graphic organizer format.

Run off copies of each prompt and give students a choice.  Mount completed work on a variety of colors of construction paper for an easy 100-Day bulletin board.

That's it for today.  Feel free to PIN away.  My "Pin it" button is on the menu bar.

## 100 Day Puzzles

1-2-3 Come Put Together Some 100-Day Puzzles With Me

It's been a busy day, so I only had time to design a special request.  Audra, from Pennsylvania, as well as Kimberly from Arizona, asked if I could make some 10-piece number puzzles to help their Y5's and K's celebrate 100-Day. Both teachers plan to use them as a whole-group activity.

These puzzles help students learn to count backwards from 10 to 0,  forwards from 1-10, or skip count by 10's to 100

Since these are for a 100 Day celebration, I decided to make 7 of the 9 puzzles with numbers that skip count to 100 by 10's

You can laminate and use the puzzles as an independent 100-Day center or run off copies for each child to take one home for more practice.

They also make an interesting piece of art when the pieces are glued to a sheet of construction paper with a little space between each piece.

Students can make a 100-Day puzzle flip book by stapling the mixed up pieces to the top of the numbered grid. Children flip through 'til they find the puzzle they are working on, and continue flipping until they have found all of the pieces necessary to complete the picture.

The packet includes 3 pictureless templates to help younger children complete a puzzle, or to use to make the flip books.  Click on the link to view/download the 100 Day Puzzle Packet.

Happy, Happy, Hundredth Day!"

## 100 Charts and 100 Day Activities

1-2-3 Come Do A Few More 100 Day Activities With Me.

Are you looking for some 100 Charts?  You've come to the right place.  I have two packets available.  There's a dozen fill-in-the-missing number 100 charts packet, + a packet with fill-in-all-of-the-missing even or odd numbers 100 charts, an empty 100 grid chart, so your students can fill it in, a traceable number 100 chart for younger kiddo's, as well as a filled-in 100 chart, that you can use to play games with.

Click on the links for the Missing Number 100 Charts and/or the 100 Charts For 100 Day packet. Now for some activities to do with the 100 charts:

Make the filled-in 100 chart into puzzles.  to be fair, make sure that all of the puzzles have the same amount of pieces. I suggest 6-10 depending on your students' ability.

If you want to use these each year, laminate a class set.  Normally, we didn't have more than 25 in Y5's and K, so I always laminated things in groups of 30, that way if one got damaged or pieces got lost, it was nice to have extra's.

Challenge your students to be the first one to put their puzzle together.  To easily organize and find the proper pieces for the appropriate puzzle, print the 100 chart on 30 different colors of paper. (To get 30 colors, I used a variety of shades of standard colors: lime green, turquoise, hunter, emerald, etc. ) Laminate and trim into a variety of different shaped puzzle pieces.

Keep each puzzle in its own Baggy.  To make putting their puzzle together a bit easier, print off the filled-in 100-grid on white card stock and laminate.  If you want to make the puzzle making a bit harder for older students, give them a blank 100-chart. Students place their puzzle pieces on the grid.

Roll 100 is another activity that you can do with a 100 chart.  Run off a filled-in 100 chart for each student.   Children choose a partner or play in groups of 3-4. Students roll 3-5 dice (depending on how much time you have) and add them up.  They X off that many squares on their 100 chart. The first one to X-off their entire grid, is the winner.

100 Chart Speed! Run off the empty 100 chart.  Say, "Ready; set; write to 100!" Students fill in their empty 100 chart as quickly as possible.  The first one done is the winner.  Can they do it in less than 100 seconds?

Give students a filled-in 100 chart and have them design a picture by coloring in numbered boxes. They can then make a number code for students to follow, so that they can color in the mystery picture

I've made one for a heart, (It's in the 100 Day With Ants packet.) as well as one that reveals the number 100. Click on the link for the Mystery Picture For 100 Day.

Using a traceable number 100 chart, have students trace the skip counted numbers in a different color, so that they can easily see how to skip count to 100 by 2's, 5's, or 10's.  Click on the link to view/download the 100 Chart Activity Packet For 100-Day.

I have an older traceable 100 day chart packet, that I did years ago, before I had all of the software programs and fonts that I use today.  I think your kiddo's might enjoy making the Gabby Apple "craftivity."  Gabby will help your students count to 100 as they trace the numbers.  Add some wiggle eyes for that finishing touch.

Do you need a 100-Day crown for your kiddo's to make, but would like it to involve some sort of standard?  How about shapes and graphing?  Students choose 8 crayons to color the various 2D shapes on their 100 number.

Children use the same color for the same shape.  ie all of the squares are yellow.  They also color the shapes on their graph those matching colors. Students count each type of shape on their 100 number and then X-off that many squares on their graph.

Have students write the total number of each shape on the left of their graph, and then add the numbers, for a grand total of how many shapes were part of the 100 picture.

Did they count the number 1 rectangle and the 4 ovals that made up the zeros? Which shape had the most?  Which had the least?

When they have completed this activity, students cut out their 100 number, being careful to keep it in one piece.  It's a good idea to demonstrate this, and then give children a reminder as you're cutting out your sample.  Students choose their favorite color of construction paper and glue their number to it.

They trim once more and glue their 100 to the front of a paper headband, or bulletin board boarder.  Wrap around child's head and then staple. My Y5's LOVED crowns.  We'd get in a line and march around the room to get the wiggles out, while singing "Happy 100 Day To Us" to the tune of Happy Birthday. (Happy 100 day to us.  Happy 100 Day to us.  Happy 100, Happy 100, Happy 100 Day to us!"   Click on the link to view/download the 100-Day, shape graphing activity packet.

Tally marks are also another fun way to have students count to 100,  and then afterwards, skip count by 5's to 100.  I made two "Tally Ho!"  worksheets that students can choose from.  Click on the link for the 100 Tally Ho Tally Mark packet.

Finally, besides all of the math activities associated with 100-Day, I thought it would be interesting for you kiddo's to do some word activities as well.

Using the letters in one hundred, challenge your students to make a list of as many words as they can think of before the timer rings in 100 seconds.

I've included my alphabetical list of 105 words.  You can share them with your students and encourage your kiddo's to look up any words that they don't know.  This is a wonderful Daily 5 activity.

I did some research to see what are the longest recorded words, and included my discoveries in this packet.   Did you know there's a word with 100 letters in it?  Surprisingly, that's not even the longest one!    Click on the link to view/download the 100-Day Word Challenge.

1-2-3 Count To 100 With Me!

If you haven’t celebrated 100-Day yet, I think you’ll like this quick, easy and fun way for your students to count to 100.

Run off the star badge template on yellow construction paper, (when you color it, the colors still show up pretty good.)  Run off the star ribbons on white construction paper.

If you want to give their badges a bit more pizzazz and strength, run off the larger background star on a complimentary construction paper color.

Students cut out the pieces and glue them together.  The diagonal lines on the ribbons will help.

Simply rub glue on them, and then press to the back of the star.

Students count the stars as they count up to 99.  Did they count the big star? That will make 100!

Use safety pins to pin them on your star students, who’ve survived 100 days of school!

Be sure and make one for yourself, so that you have a sample!  You are a star too!  Click on the link to view/download the 100-Day Star Badge.  If you're looking for a few links, to other fun things, to help you celebrate 100-Day, you'll want to check out this fun "Find The Missing Animals" game.

Students are asked to click on different number spaces in the 100 grid, when they click on the correct number space, an animal appears and goes into their "found" column.

Also, Joan Holub, who wrote 100 Days Of School for Scholastic, asked educators for their favorite 100-Day ideas.  She's published a list of 300 ! Click on the link to view 300 ideas for 100 Day.

Whatever you’re doing for your 100th Day, I hope it’s simply sparkling! Thanks for visiting today.  Feel free to PIN anything that you think others may find helpful.

## 100-Day Writing Prompt Quilts

98, 99, Hooray! It's 100-Day!

Are you looking for a fun, quick and easy writing prompt for 100 Day?

How about a poster?  Simply run them off and have students fill in their answers. Add a photograph for pizzazz and mount on construction paper.

What an awesome 100-Day bulletin board these will make. Click on the link to view/download the 100-Day Writing Prompt Poster.

After I had designed the poster, my thoughts some how drifted to making a 100-Day quilt.  I decided to expand the above writing prompts and dreamed up this equally easy quilt-square template.

There are several different things you can do with this 100-Day quilt template. Run off the larger quilt square on a variety of colored construction paper.

Divide 100 by the number of students you have in your class to see how many quilt squares each person gets.

If this is an odd number you can do the remaining ones, or ask the principal, secretary or another staff member, that the children know, to do 1 too.

Run the writing prompt quilt squares off on white construction paper.

Cut them apart, toss them in a container and have each child pick out X number of squares to complete.

In order to practice another Common Core State Standard, I purposely left off end punctuation.

Remind students to add the end punctuation after they have filled in the blanks.

It would be a good idea to review the period and exclamation point with them.

When you show students your sample, be sure and explain that their answers can be funny, but that they should make sense.

For example, it’s obvious that you can’t fit 100 dinosaurs in a lunch box, but you wouldn’t even put 1 in a lunch box. They need to think of things that are appropriate, things that they normally would find in a room, locker, yard, etc.

In the blank spaces, they need to draw, use stickers, pictures from a magazine, a photograph or clip art, to illustrate their square.

Students choose whatever colored squares they want to glue their writing prompt squares on.

Assemble the quilt squares on the wall, bulletin board or pieces of tag board and display.

Assembling the quilt squares is a nice way to practice a color pattern. Another thing you can do is have each student do the entire quilt-block template.

It only took me 15 minutes to find all of the clip art and do the sample, so this is not a huge homework assignment.

Parents can interview younger children, and fill in the blanks with their answers.

You can have each child be responsible for their own background, to glue their answer quilt to, suggesting to parents in a note home, that they choose a large square sheet of fun-colored or patterned piece of scrapbook paper.

To expedite things, you could also simply buy a nice variety of sheets and let your students choose one.  Along with their writing prompt quilt, give them each a !00 Day header strip for them to glue at the top of their quilt.

Hole punch each side and string with yarn.  Add student photographs to make their quilts even more of a keepsake and add pizzazz to your display.

Be sure and make a quilt yourself. So you have an example to share with your students.   If you don’t have the time, I’ve included my completed template for you to fill in and add a backing.  My final quilt is a little fancier.

I cut a 3rd size square template and chose 3 different patterns of scrapbook paper.   After you have glued all of the squares together, students glue them on a large sheet of colored construction paper of their choice.

Whatever quilt you decide on, I know your students will enjoy making them, and your display will be awesome!
