Five days before you celebrate your 100th day of school, have students keep a journal of how they spend their time. Do it for 4 days and 4 hours for a total of 100 hours.
Give your students a certificate of praise on 100-Day. Here are 18 to choose from, including a black and white set for students to color.
100 ways to say "I love you." Have your students choose one, and find that country on the map.
Looking for some new ways to praise your students, or a sweet note to give them on 100-Day? I think you'll enjoy this list of 100 ways to praise.
1-2-3 Come Do A Few More 100 Day Activities With Me
This past week has been focused on 100 Day activities, and I think I'm finally done with my "To Do" list. Woo Hoo! I wanted to finish up with a few requests as well as some rather unusual ideas. I hope you and your kiddo's enjoy them.
Andrea will be celebrating 100 Day in February, with her preschool class in Montana, and wanted a 100 Day certificate that they could color.
Jill, over in Oregon, needed some certificates of achievement for her kinders, who can count to 100 + skip count by 5's and 10's.
Shondra, from Memphis, also teaches preschool and asked for an easy 100 Day craft.
One of my Y5's favorites, was their rip and tear 100 rainbow, which provides wonderful fine motor practice.
You could also review patterning and have students choose 2 or 3 colors to make ABAB or ABCABC etc patterns.
The results turn out really pretty and make a great bulletin board. Click on the link to grab a copy. 100 Day Rip & Tear Craftivity.
Susan, in North Dakota, asked if I had any 100 Day games that were simple and quick.
There are quite a few games in the various 100 Day packets, but I wanted to dream up something that teachers could plug in as a "just for fun" activity, if they had a few minutes.
Young or old can play "Dots and Boxes;" it's a game that was designed by Édouard Lucas, way back in 1889 . The game is great for the strategy it reinforces + younger children get practice with the square shape. I made the grid so that it has 100 boxes, perfect for your 100 Day celebration.

Run off the Happy 100 Day bookmark with 100 smilie faces on it, to use as a prize, or give everyone for participating.
A few "thinking games" would also be interesting for your students. Most of them will be pretty familiar with numeric terms such as a million, billion, and trillion, but do any of them know what comes after? I wondered about really large numbers; so I surfed the net to find out.
Interestingly, when I got past 100 decillion, spell checker started to underline these “new” words in red. I also spotted a pattern of repetitive names.
See if your students can guess what a higher number might be called. You could also have them guess how many zeros are in 100 quintillion, or have them research what the largest number is named.
Webmath was an extremely helpful site. You can type in any number, click “pronounce” and it will show you how to say that number.
This would be a great independent computer center for students. Have them type in a number and then share their findings with the class.
You could also use your smart board to show students what happens when you keep adding zeros to a number like 100. Since I wanted teachers to be able to incorporate this lesson with their 100 Day activities, I looked up things by 100s and made an anchor chart for you.

Another thing for your students to ponder, I call 100 Hours. Five days before you celebrate your 100th Day of school, ask your students if they have any idea how many hours they do certain things each day?
Most people know how much time they sleep, but are pretty amazed at how much time they really spend on the computer, phone, or watching TV.
Run off the 100 hours journal (that's 4 days and 4 hours) and have students keep track. A graphing extension is also included. After this activity, challenge students to read more, and social network less. Click on the link to view/download the 100 Hours Journal.
Finally, whenever I'm doing research, a few zillion more questions and ideas pop into my brain. I wondered how you say 100 in a different language. Over an hour later, I had a nice list of 20 ways to say the number.
I made a 100 Around The World poster and also put it in bookmark form, as something to share with your students. For a social studies extension, have children choose one and find that country on the map. Click on the link to view/download 100 Around The World.
Since many teachers will be celebrating their 100th day of school close to Valentine's Day, I thought these would be nice additions. Click on the links to grab your copies.
Thanks for visiting today. I hope you found a few things to add to your 100 Day celebrations.

"We've been working in our classroom, for 100 days. We've been working in our classroom, and deserve some praise. Rising early in the morning, bring our books and pencils too. Every day we come to our school, we learn something new." -To the tune of "I've Been Working On The Railroad"
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.
"Woo hoo for me; woo hoo for you! We're 100 Day's smarter it's true!"
Reinforce time to the hour with this fun digital and analog clock game for 100 Day. Students take turns rolling one dice to get numbers 1-6 for those times, and then roll 2 dice and add them together to get numbers 7-12.
