1-2-3 Come Do Some 100 Day Activities With Me
When I celebrate 100 Days of school, I set up a variety of centers for my students.
I like to involve a bit of art into at least one of their lessons, so I designed this “Cool To Be 100 Days Smarter” ice cream scoop craft, which involves counting as well as a bit of writing.
Completed projects make an interesting and colorful bulletin board.
I’ve included several poster options for the center of your display.
Take a look at the PREVIEW for lots of samples.
The craft is very versatile with lots of options.
There are 3 types of ice cream scoops, with 7 bases ( cones, cups, bowls) to choose from.
Pick your favorites or give children a choice, to add more variety to your bulletin board.
Students can also add sprinkles, caramel, cherry or chocolate syrup, plus a cherry for the top.
Going along with the 100-Day theme, there are 10 scoops, which can be skip counted by 10s, or halved and counted by 5s.
Children can also write numbers 1-10 on the 1st scoop, finishing with numbers 90-100 on the last scoop.
Although scoops look nice plopped in a straight line, suggest making a tilting ice cream cone, or perhaps one with 3 scoops then 2, then the other 5 on top of the double scoop.
Patterns come with & without numbers, so students can write in their own.
To add to the counting fun, there’s even a scoop with 100 sprinkles on it, (6 groups of 15 + 1 group of 10) which can be “hinged” to the top scoop with a piece of Scotch tape, then flipped up to reveal a student’s favorite flavor of ice cream, or another writing prompt you deem appropriate.
Besides the ice cream craft, I’ve also included a writing prompt activity, where students compile a list of interesting and fun things that they've learned in 100 days of school.
I've also included counting worksheets, where children trace and write the numbers by ones, fives and tens.
A "Happy 100 Day" color-me poster, as well as some mini-game cards you can program however you want, make for interesting centers as well.
There are several bookmarks and a certificate of praise you can give your students at the end of your 100th Day of fun. Both patterns come in color as well as black and white.
For your special snack that day, for continued math fun, why not provide ice cream with 10 different topping options.
Today's featured FREEBIE also has a 100 Day theme. It's an old fashioned game called "Dots & Boxes" that's a perfect partner center to practice a variety of math skills, plus strategy.
The object of the game is to be the last person to connect the last line that will complete a box.
When you complete a box, you get to write your initial in it. I made the grid with 100 boxes.
Well that's it for today. It continues to snow here in Michigan, which is lovely, but no sunshine and the wind makes it quite bitter outside.
To say I'm longing for spring and super-sick of the cold, is an understatement for sure.
However, to be alive and healthy is certainly a blessing. Wishing you a warm and wonderful day.

1-2-3 Come Do Some 100 Day Money Activities With Me
For those of you who haven't celebrated 100 Day yet, the "Making Cents on 100 Day" packet includes some different and interesting activities for your celebration, that involve money.
Even tho' I designed the packet to go along with my 100 Day activities, they easily fit your lessons about coins, and would be appropriate anytime.
The activities are simple enough for kinders, but can be challenging enough for older kiddos as well. Simply pick which activities are most appropriate then "print & go".
The packet reinforces addition, counting, data analysis, comparison, greater & less than, coin identification, graphing, & tally marks.
Students work independently on their worksheets, or can partner up to complete one as well.
I've also included a writing prompt that relates, plus some "funny money" and a "We're 100 Days Smarter!" poster for your bulletin board display.
The "Building Vocabulary With Dollar & 100 Dollar Words" is also a super-fun, money-themed activity appropriate for 100 Day or any other time.
I did a ton of work on this packet to make it easy-peasy for you!
The Dollar Word packet reinforces addition, critical thinking, strategy, cooperative learning, counting, plus greater & less than.
There are also teachable moments for reviewing prefixes, suffixes, plurals & parts of speech, as part of the strategy of finding a dollar word.
Keep things simple for younger students, raise the bar and include more for older kiddos.
Using calculators for checking, provides added practice and enables younger students to take part in these activities.
Dollar words are great anytime for building vocabulary and practicing math skills, as well as an interesting Daily-5 word work activity.
Because words are worth 100 points (pennies for dollar words, or dollars, for one hundred dollar words) it’s perfect for your 100-Day celebration too.
Each letter is given a point value. Introduce the lesson by having students find out the value of their name. (A worksheet is provided).
Afterwards, challenge students to try and find words whose total equals 100.
Beforehand, discuss some strategy: Can you make it plural to gain easy, additional points? How ‘bout a prefix or suffix?
Have students keep track of their efforts, so even if they don’t find a dollar word, they can share the word with their highest total.
Students can work individually, with a partner, or in small groups.
I’ve included cute, one and one hundred dollar bill templates for children to record their dollar word on.
They can draw a picture of themselves or glue on a photo to the front. Run these off on light green paper. Students fold over & glue together.
There’s a balloon option, with 2 sizes as well.
The packet also includes an alphabetical list of 740 “dollar” words; a dollar word dictionary for students to record their results; worksheets; 60, dollar word clue cards for playing a Dollar Word riddle game, with an answer key, and 2 recording sheets; as well as a letter value bookmark, plus mini-certificates of praise.
Today's featured FREEBIE is a sweet "Shapely Snow Angel" packet that includes an emergent reader, craftivity, plus graphing extentions that reinforce 2D shapes. I hope you find it useful.
Well that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by.
The wind is howling outside my window, so it's time to toss another log on the fire and grab a cup of tea. Wishing you a warm and cozy day.

1-2-3 Come Do Some 100 Day Activities With Me
Living in the midwest, we don't start school 'til after Labor Day, so our 100th Day of school celebration doesn't hit 'til sometime in February.
Today's blog features four of my favorite 100 Day activities.
First up is the skip count by 10s emergent reader, which features 43 Dolch sight words!
On 100 Day, I have my kiddos count to 100 in a variety of ways. With that in mind, I designed this packet to give you a few interesting activities for practicing skip counting by 10s, that are sure to be fun for your students.
This is a mini, 4-on-a-page booklet, which they trim, collate and staple together.
Children read the sentence, and dot 10 spots on the picture.
To include a lot of sight words as well as practice following directions, some spots are big, others little, and a few are a specific color.
However, you can also do this booklet with PK, non-readers as well. Simply read each page and have students “monkey-see, monkey-do” what you’ve done in your sample.
Afterwards, read the booklet as a whole group, then count the spots by 10s, to come up with 100 “spots and dots”.
The packet also includes 4 “slider” craftivities, featuring one for boys and one for girls. There is a 100 Day option, as well as one for any time, with a 2-on-a-page pattern, plus one with 4-on-a-page.
I designed sliders as a quick, easy, and fun way to practice a variety of standards, as well as whole group assess.
Because children see the numbers “slide” by as they count, this is especially helpful for visual learners.
I often have my students trace the numbers to show an AB-AB or ABC-ABC color pattern.
There are 4 worksheets, plus a certificate of praise as well.
The skip counting to 100 by 5s emergent reader matches the format of the first one.
Here children read the sentence, and dot 5 spots on each picture instead of 10.
This booklet features over 70 Dolch sight words, but again, is easy enough for a PK student, when you make the booklet as a whole group activity.
All of the pictures for both books are different.
My students enjoy doing both throughout the week, then we graph which one was their favorite.
Finally, if you're looking for a writing prompt with a creative twist, then I think you'll enjoy the 100 Day Writing Prompt Quilt Packet.
There are two ways to use the quilt patterns.
Make a whole-group classroom quilt, where each students contributes 1-3 squares, or give each child a copy of the quilt and have them make their own 100 Day quilt poster.
For the classroom quilt idea, run off X amount of copies of the pattern (there are 12 squares on it) for however many squares you want your students to contribute, then cut them up and toss them in a container for children to pick.
They fill in the two blanks, add end punctuation to complete the sentence, then draw or glue on clip art pictures that match.
Provide a variety of scrapbook squares to glue their completed quilt square(s) on, then arrange them on a piece of tag board or bulletin board paper, to make a big classroom quilt.
Even PK kiddos can make a square by dictating their answers, then drawing a picture.
Since the pattern only has 12 squares on it, and the prompts are super-fun to answer, the quilt is also do-able as a personal, 100-Day quilt "poster", which students mount on large, square sheets of scrapbook paper.
It only took me 15 minutes to make my sample, so this is a great homework assignment too.
If you don't want to do crafty, but need a super-fun 100 Day writing prompt, I've got you covered.
I know your students will really enjoy not only completing, but sharing this "fill-in-the-blank", "Print & Go" writing activity.
There's a colorful version, as well as a black & white option. Students add end punctuation where appropriate.
Afterwards, "popcorn" around the room, and have students share a portion of their work, (fun way to get to know more about your students), then mount on construction paper and display on a "100 Days Smarter" bulletin board.
PK kiddos can also do this as a homework assignment, so they can dictate what they want their parents to fill in.
Today's featured FREEBIE is an "Oldie 100-Day Pennant" craftivity.
Challenge your students to think about how they might look if they live to be 100. Have them draw a self-portrait or use an aging app to create a photograph.
Suggestions and links for apps are included, as well as templates for an "Oldie 100-Day Pennant Banner."
Well that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you found something useful here, that will add even more fun to your 100 Day celebration.
Speaking of celebrations, I have to get going on making some special things for my mom's 90th birthday bash this weekend. We are planning a surprise party and I have much to do.
Wishing you a productive and energizing day, brimming with warm fuzzy moments.

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.

1-2-3 Come Do Some 100 Day Activities With Me
It's that time of year when we're getting close to the 100th Day of school. This was one of my personal favorite celebration days. Over the years I had collected so many super-fun math and writing activities, that I decided to have a 100-Day celebration week, so I could get it all in!
Today I'm featuring some of my favorites, which have been up-dated this past week. The 100 Day, "Flip a strip" booklet is a quick, easy & fun 100 Day "print & go" activity that your kiddos are sure to enjoy.
Children can do this independently during your 100 Day celebration, or as a whole group; read the simple sentences, students then take a moment to complete the task. When the booklet is completed, go back and skip count by 10s to count the 100 things.
You can also send this home a few days prior, to be completed and then returned on 100 Day. The booklet can simply be the "strips" or add a bit more pizzazz and have students staple it to the "color me" base.
100 Day just isn't complete without a celebratory crown. I've included six in the 100 Day Craftivity Crowns packet. All involve a bit of counting practice.
Look closely at the pictures and you will see how students made 20 groups of 5 on the “100 Day Rocks!” crown, as well as 10 groups of 10 on the heart crown.
The crown with the circle "jewels" on it, has 104 circles and includes a guess-timation math activity.
My personal favorite is the “100 Days Smarter” pencil crown, where students write things that they’ve learned in the past 100 days, that they are especially proud of.
Choose one, or give children a choice.
You could also make a sample of the “jeweled” crown, adding extra pizzazz with flat-backed rhinestones attached with glue dots.
Pass the sample around and give children 10 seconds to look it over, “guess-timating” how many circles (jewels) are on the crown, then complete the worksheet.
The child with the correct guess, or the one closest to that number is the winner of the “special” crown.
Finally, the 100+ One Hundred-Day Number Puzzles, are also easy-peasy and a ton of fun. I’ve included a huge variety that count by 1s to 10, count backwards from 10 to 1, as well as skip count by 2s, 3s, 5s & 10s.
There are 112 in all. Some are vertical, while others are horizontal and feature a nice assortment of themes.
Pick and choose your favorites to make a collection of choices for your students.
Print, laminate & trim the full color options and use as an independent math center.
Use the black & white ones, so that students can color & cut up their own puzzle.
For an interesting “craftivity” have students glue their puzzle to a sheet of construction paper.
Remind them to leave a little bit of a gap between each numbered strip, to create an especially cool mosaic effect. Completed projects make a cute bulletin board.
I’ve included a “We are 100 days smarter!” poster puzzle, to use as the center of your display, along with a “My students are 100 days smarter! They know how to . . .” writing prompt poster, that you fill in with what you’ve taught your kiddos.
To mix math with literacy, have students complete the “Proud to be 100 days smarter!” writing prompt and glue it to the back of their puzzle, then suspend from the ceiling.
Besides the full-size puzzles, I’ve also designed a set of “Happy 100 Day!” 4-on-a-page mini puzzles, as an inexpensive little surprise for your students.
They feature a vibrant, rainbow-colored 100, with 2 options: numbers 1-10, as well as skip counting by 10s to 100.
Print, trim, and put in a Snack Baggie, then attach the “Here is a little something to do because I’m simply so proud of you!” header.
Today's featured FREEBIE is also a quick, easy & fun "print & go" activity. The "Dots 'n Boxes" game was first published in 1889 by Édouard Lucas.
I thought it would make a quick, easy and fun game of strategy for students to play anytime, but specifically for 100 Day, as I made a 100-box grid.
Children choose a partner and take turns connecting 2 dots by making a line between them.
The object of the game is to be the last person to connect the last line that will complete a box. When you complete a box, you get to write your initial in it.
When all 100 boxes have been made, students count up how many they have with their initial in them. The one with the most boxes is the winner.
Well that's it for today. I hope you found something useful here to make your 100-Day celebration especially fun.

1-2-3 Come Play Some Educational 100 Day Games With Me
If you're like me, then you enjoy using games to reinforce and practice a variety of standards. The "Dots 'n Boxes" game is perfect for 100 Day, as it's simple, quick and fun for your students, and when completed, will reveal 100 boxes!
Children choose a partner and take turns connecting two dots with a line. The object of the game is to complete a box by drawing the last line, which will enclose the box.
Students then put their initial inside. Once all 100 boxes are made, the child with the most boxes is the winner. Click on the link for the Dots 'n Boxes 100 Day game.
Another 100 Day game reinforces digital and analog. Students take turns rolling one dice to get numbers 1-6 for those times, and then roll 2 dice, adding them together, to get numbers 7-12.
Whatever number they roll they trace that digital time, and write in that number in the appropriate section of their analog clock. The first one to complete their "It's Time To Celebrate" paper, is the winner. A certificate of praise is also included.
Puzzle Games: Help students learn to count backwards from 10 to 0, forwards from 1-10, or skip count by 10s to 100 with these 9 sweet 100 Day number puzzles.
You can laminate and use them as an independent 100-Day center, or run off copies for each child to take one home for more practice.
The packet includes 3 picture-less templates to help younger children put the pieces in the correct order.
The 100s chart also offers a variety of game options. Children can find the mystery picture hidden in the 100s chart by coloring in the appropriate numbers to reveal the number 100.
There's also a mystery picture, which reveals a heart.
You can find this 100s chart in my Celebrating 100 Days With an Ant Theme packet. (Particularly perfect, if you read 100 Hungry Ants on your 100th Day of school, or your 100th day falls close to Valentine's Day. )
For more 100 chart fun, there are seven 100 charts in my 100 chart packet, which includes a blank 100 chart for students to fill in, a 100 chart, where the "skip count by 5s numbers" are in red, a 100 chart, where the "skip count by 10s numbers" are in blue, a traceable 100 chart for little ones, a "What's Missing?" fill-in-the-even numbers 100 chart, as well as a "What's Missing?" fill-in-the-odd-numbers 100 chart. For more fill-in-the-blank 100 chart templates, click on the link for my monthly packet.
The filled-in 100 chart is perfect for making puzzles, or designing your own "mystery" pictures. To easily make 100 chart puzzles, simply print off the 100 chart on a variety of colors of construction paper; laminate and then trim each color into a different puzzle. I keep each one in a Zip Lock Baggie.
To help younger students, who are just learning to count to 100, print off a class set of the 100 chart on white card stock and laminate, so that students can tehn place their puzzle pieces on the grid.
Another 100 Day game that you can play with the filled-in 100 chart, is "Race to 100". Students pick a partner and take turns rolling the dice. They add the numbers together, then color in that many boxes on their worksheet. The first one to fill in the entire chart, is the winner. If you're pressed for time, have students use only one, 100 chart-worksheet. Each child uses their own color crayon to fill in their boxes. When the grid is complete, each child counts their boxes; the student with the most, is the winner.
Finally, besides all of those math activities, add some 100 Day Word fun to your celebration. Using the letters in the words one hundred, challenge your students to list as many words as they can think of, before 100 seconds is up and the timer rings. Who thought of the most words? Who had the longest word?
I've included my list of 105 words that I thought of. After students share their lists, share yours and have students look up any words that they don't know.
I also did a bit of research about the longest recorded words, and included my discoveries. I even found a word with 100 letters in it! Why not give students some computer time to see what they come up with, or assign this as a homework assignment to be shared on your 100th Day of school.
Thanks for visiting. I hope you found some useful 100 Day ideas that will help get your kiddos excited about this special day of learning. To see the other blog articles I posted this week with more 100 Day activities, simply scroll down.
I'm watching my grandchildren today, so I've hit the floor running. There's nothing quite like reliving your childhood by playing games, reading stories, and making crafty memories with your children's children. Wishing you a magical, love-filled day.

1-2-3 Come Do Some 100 Day Craftivities With Me
There is only so much one can accomplish in a day, and so many super-fun 100 Day ideas, that I decided long ago to do 100-Day activities over several days, culminating with an extra-special celebration on our 100th day of school.
With that in mind, I designed a variety of quick, easy and fun activities for you to choose from. They make terrific whole group activities, as well as independent centers. Today I'm featuring a few of our most downloaded 100-Day craftivities. I hope you like them.
After my students complete their "table top" worksheets, they can visit the 100 Day "centers". I set these up on wooden TV trays, where students can collect the materials they need and return to their desks to complete them.
Run these "I'm 100 Days Smarter, and That's Something to Smile About!" 100-Day smilie-face bookmarks off, on a variety of pastel-colored construction paper. Each child chooses one, then counts by 1s to 100, as they fill them in. When everyone is done, count the rows by 5s to also reach 100. The master template has 5 bookmarks on a page for quick printing.
If you're looking for some 100 Day certificates to pass out to your kiddos, click on the link for 18. They are in black & white and full color.
Again, I give my students a choice of which one they want to color, and use the full color ones as awards for some of our games.
My Y5's loved making and wearing crowns, so our day wouldn't have been complete without some for our 100th day of school celebration.
These three 100 Day crowns, helped reinforce counting and were set up as a center.
Look closely at the pictures and you will see how students made 20 groups of 5 on the 100 Day Rocks crown, as well as 10 groups of 10 on the heart crown.
The crown with the circle "jewels" on it, has 104 circles and includes a guess-timation activity.
Another crown option, reviews shapes,colors and graphing, while making a "shapely" crown for 100 Day.
There is a black and white set, 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 creative crown.
Another of their favorite activities, was our "Oldies Banner". Challenge your students to think about how they might look if they live to be 100, then have them draw a self-portrait or use an aging app to create a photograph.
Suggestions and links for apps are included, as well as templates for an "Oldie 100-Day Pennant Banner."
You can also "reinforce" the number 100 with this 100 Day banner craftivity. Reinforcement hole stickers are inexpensive and come in packs of a 1,000 for less than $2.
You can get plain white ones or ones in bright or neon colors. Simply run the banner template off on a variety of colors of construction paper. Add school photographs for that finishing touch. Have students trim and then hang your banner from the ceiling against a wall.
Each month I also did a "rip & tear" craftivity. For February, it was the number 100 for our 100th Day of school celebration.
Ripping & tearing is a great fine motor skill. Simply cut construction paper strips, in a variety of colors.
I made mine an inch wide. Students can choose two colors if you want them to do an ABAB pattern, or lots of colors as this child did in the pictured sample.
I had my Y5's rip up piles of each color, and then using a glue stick, they rubbed the numbers and stuck the torn pieces of paper to them. Completed projects make a wonderful 100 Day bulletin board.
Finally, since the full color 100 Day puzzles were such a huge hit, I thought I'd make some 100 Day number puzzles in black and white, so that your students can choose one and color their own.
There are 15 puzzles, which help students practice counting from 1-10, count backwards from 10 to 1, as well as skip count by 10s to 100.
Treat them as an independent puzzle-center activity, or do as a whole group activity. For an interesting 100 Day bulletin board, have students glue their puzzle pieces onto a sheet of construction paper. For an awesome mosaic effect, have children leave a little space in-between each piece.
For more 100 Day ideas and activities, scroll down to take a look at all of the other 100 Day FREEBIES featured in last week's blog articles. You can also click on the link to pop over to the 100 Day Celebration section of TeachWithMe to see all of the activities I have for 100 Day. In case you're new here, everything on my site is free.
For even more 100 Day ideas and FREEBIES, check out my Pinterest postings. I have a board specifically for 100 Day activities.
Thanks for visiting today. Even though my mind is buzzing with crafty things I still want to make, it's the weekend, so it's time for a break to chill and take a much-needed rest from work that's mostly play for me. Wishing you a relaxing day.

If you're looking for a fun way to count up to 100 Day and cover a few more standards along the way, I think you'll enjoy this shape train.
This Little Piggy Went To Market, and This Little Piggy Went To School For 100-Day!
What started out to be a few simple piggy bank worksheets, to help students count coins to 100, turned into a whopping 50-page 100-Day Piggy Packet.
You don't have to use it just for 100-Day, reviewing these "hog wild" counting skills, throughout the year, is important no matter what the day, and it's nice to have a variety of tricks in your bag of how to do that in an interesting way.
After all, counting to 100 can get quite boring for some little ones, and extremely frustrating for those kiddo's whose light bulbs haven't lit up yet. With that in mind, I designed the Q-tip mud craftivity to the right. Students dab brown paint on the 10 groups of 10 dots on the dirty piggy. For less mess, children could use a brown crayon to color in the dots.
This unique packet will help you with Common Core State Standards: K.CC.1, K.CC.3, K.CC.4a, K.CC.4b, K.CC.4c, K.CC.5, K.OA.1, K.CC.6, 1.NBT.1 The packet is chock full of all kinds of goodies to help you celebrate 100-Day, or simply use as math centers.
The packet includes:

Happy 100-Day With a 100-Topping Pizza!
If you're like my school, you'll be celebrating 100-Day in February.
I LOVE that day! It's such a fantastic opportunity to do so many math things. I also liked to have my Y5's count to 100 in a variety of different ways.
100-Day Pizza is a non-boring way to do that. Our pre-school has a pizza-themed day and the children love it, so I thought it would be fun to design a pizza with 100 toppings.
If your kiddo's are learning to skip count by 10's to 100 then use that pizza template. If you're also counting to 100 by 5's, you may want to give your students a choice.
I designed this packet so that you could cover quite a few Common Core State Standards: RF.K1a, RF.K1c, RF.K3c, L.K.2a, L.K.2b, RF.1.1a, L.1.2b, K.G.2, K.CC.1, K.OA.1
Remember to remind students that they are reading from left to right and top-down. Have them note the spaces between words, circle the capital letters and add the end punctuation.
There's opportunities in the booklet to skip count by 2's, 3's, 5's and 10's.
Besides the easy reader booklet that contains quite a few sight and Dolch words, I've also included a pizza craftivity, 2 graphing extensions, a shape sorting mat, pizza patterning page and a count the pizza slices by 5's worksheet.
The 100-Day pizza, has 100 toppings! Students can arrange them by 10 groups of 10, or 20 groups of 5, depending on how you want them to count to 100.
These 100 topping pizzas review 2D-shapes as well as colors, and make a terrific 100-Day bulletin board.
