Review shapes, colors and graphing, while making a 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.
A less boring way to count to 100, is to have your students choose one of these Tally Ho sheets and make 100 tally marks. When they are done, they can also skip count to 100 by 5's.
Seven 100 charts perfect for your 100-Day games & activities. Includes a blank 100 grid for students to fill in, a filled-in 100 chart to make puzzles and "mystery" pictures, a chart, where the "skip count by 5's numbers" are in red, a 100 chart, where the "skip count by 10's numbers" are in blue, a traceable 100 chart, a "What's Missing?" fill in the even numbers 100 chart, as well as a "What's Missing?" fill in the odd numbers chart.
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 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. Click on the link to view/download Celebrating 100 Day With Ants.
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.
I designed a 100 Days Smarter Smartie certificate that you'll find in the Hippo packet, if you decide to use Smarties as part of your 100 Day Celebration.
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.

1-2-3 Come Do Some More 100 Day Activities With Me
Some teachers have told me that they like to carry their all-year-long themes through to 100 Day. i.e. apples, owls, monsters etc. With that in mind, I designed some 100-Day themed packets that I hope you'll enjoy.
Do you need some number cards that go all the way to 100?
Click on the link for the 100 Apple number cards or the 120 owl number cards.
I've also designed some owl-themed 100-Day bookmarks. Tuck them in your students' desks, lockers or backpacks.
Use them as incentives and challenge students to collect all 4.
Keeping with the apple theme, I have a complete 100-Day Apple themed packet.
The 27-page packet includes all sorts of activities and worksheets specific to 100 Day. i.e.
Choose to have students count and color a 100 number made up of 100 apples, or a count by ten's to 100 patterning page.
I thought it would also be fun to introduce the word googol to students. Most of them will probably associate the word with the Google search engine.
A Googol is the number 1 with 100 zeros after it. When I thought about the sound of this silly word, it reminded me of aliens or monsters, so I designed a 51-page 100-Day monster-themed packet.
I created 11 googol monsters using the adorable clip art of Laura Strickland and added some wiggle eyes. The entire googol number is on their tummies. Choose one or make them all to help introduce this humongus number, then give them away as prizes.
Have fun counting to 100 by 1's, 5's or 10's with a googol monster slider.
Counting by 5's to 100 is especially fun when naming your googol monster, making 20 groups of 5 spots on it, and then coloring him.
Another 50-page 100-Day themed packet is the Hog Wild Over 100 Day one featuring pigs.
Because piggies are often banks, this packet includes lots of coin activities, like the one pictured where students can count to 100 while coloring pennies, or dabbing on 100 spots of mud to the piggy's head, with a Q-tip.
The piggy packet also has measuring activities and a slider. Choose if you want your kiddo's to count to 100 by 1's, 5's or 10's.
Students can also count by 10's with traceable piggy paddles.
Well that's it for today. Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to PIN away.
I hope you found a few new ideas that will add to the excitement of celebrating your 100th day of school. Be sure and pop in tomorrow for even more fun-themed 100 Day activities.

1-2-3 Come Do Some 100-Day Activities With Me!
Our school doesn't hit 100 Day 'til February, but if you're not from the midwest, where school doesn't start 'til after Labor Day, then you're probably coming up on your 100th day of school celebration.
This was one of my absolute favorite celebrations with my Y5's. We did all sorts of fun math activities and games all day long. Here are some of my all-time favorites, that I hope your kiddo's will enjoy as much as we did.
Start off the day by tucking a 100 Day bookmark in their desk.
If you're looking for some books to read, click on the link for 35 of my all-time favorite books for 100 Day. Because I have so many favorites, I started reading a few each day for the entire week of 100 Day.
Sorting and counting were a must for 100 Day. I had tubs of all sorts of interesting objects for my students to sort and count into 10 piles of 10. To make this easier for them, I designed some 100 Day count by 10's mats.
I've also designed some pre-100 Day challenges. Challenge your students to read 100 books as a class. Divide the number of students in your class by 100 to find out how many books each student is responsible to read, so that the class total will be 100. You can count yourself as well. Click on the link for the 100 Books for 100 Day challenge.
Another challenge starts 10 days before you celebrate 100 Day. It's a 100 words for 100 Day dictionary. Each day students write 10 vocabulary, Dolch, CVC, compound words, contractions, spelling or other words in their 100 Words for !00 Day booklet. Click on the link to view/download it.
If you need a list of contractions (72), compound words (2,756) CVC words (338) or Dolch words (pp-3rd) just click on the specific links.
My Y5's had a choice of what 100 Day class books they wanted to make. Each student was responsible to fill in their own page and then illustrate it. After students shared their page, I collected them, collated and added a cover.
Here are the prompts: If I had 100 Wishes, If I had 100 Dollars, I'd like 100 _____ in my room, but not 100 _______ because, I could eat 100 ______ but not 100 ______ because, or I'd walk 100 miles for ... Click on the link to view/download the 100 Day Class Book packet.
If you're looking for some 100 Day craftivities that make awesome 100 Day bulletin boards, click on the link to check out 10 ideas.
Another popular 100-Day craft is the 100-Day Sunshine. There are 10 strips with 10 numbers that help students count from 1 to 100.
I've also included 2 extra strips for numbers to 120 to cover the 1st grade standard. The count by 5's numbers and the count by 10's numbers are in different colors, so that students can easily skip count using their sun.
There is a plain sun template, so students can draw in their own face as well as ones that don't say Happy 100 Day, so you can use it at other times. Click on the link for the 100-Day Sunshine craftivity.
The 100-Day Quilt Writing Prompt, as well as the 100-Day Writing Prompt Poster also make excellent 100-Day bulletin boards.
There are several different quilt options.
One of my 100-Day independent centers was making a Happy 100 Day star badge.
Can you guess how many stars the students will be coloring? Yup; 100. Click on the link to grab it. Happy 100 Day Star Badge
Finally, my Y5's favorite mini booklets, were the ones we did for 100 Day. They added 10 spots to 10 things to count up to 100 by 10's, as well as added 5 dots to 20 things to count up to 100 by 5's. When they were done adding spots and dots they could color my hand drawn pictures.
The packets include regular and traceable 100 charts, worksheets + a certificate of praise. Click on the link to view/download the Count by 10's To 100 Spot Booklet and/or the Count by 5's To 100 Dot booklet.
Thanks for visiting today. It's not too cold out, so it's time to walk my poodle pup Chloe. We've both got a bit of cabin fever. Wishing you a refreshing day.
"Woo Hoo for me; woo hoo for you; we're 100 Days smarter it's now very true!" -Diane Henderson
I know that some teachers have already celebrated 100 Day, but for quite a few, that day is coming up around Valentine’s Day.
There have been many requests on the various web rings that I frequent, for some “different” ideas and themes, so I came up with Ants a few weeks ago.
Start your day by surprising your students with a 100 Day Party Smartie card on their desk.
Increase their finger dexterity and fold paper to form the number 100 and make a "growth" card comparing their weight and height from the 1st day of school to the 100th day.
I LOVE hippo’s and thought the above play on words would be appropriate. Harley and Helga were fun to draw. I hope you enjoy them. I designed the following hippo-riffic activities around them:
Trace, cut and glue the mixed up words to spell one hundred for a different kind of skill sheet.
Hippo Todd is fond of odd numbers and Steven (my son’s name,) likes even numbers. Have fun filling in the appropriate ones all the way to 100 by playing this “Speed” game.
I haven’t seen anyone make 100 tallies and that’s certainly a great way to count by 5’s. Can you accomplish this feat in 100 seconds?
Get in some estimation exercise by guessing how many candy hearts will fill up Harley’s mouth, then do some math extensions by the ton!
Make a class book, pencil topper, necklace, valentine, and two puppets—one from a lunch bag and one for your fingers.
Puppets are great for showing spatial directions, identifying body parts, counting, helping to retell a story, and even doing the Hippo Pokey with!
Click on the link to view/print the 100-Day Hippo-themed packet.
Whatever you’re doing for 100-Day, I hope it’s simply hippo-licious!

"What happens is not as important as how you react to what happens." -Thadddeus Golas
My 99 Year Old Granny
Because I always planned a zillion things for 100 Day, there just never seemed to be enough time for everything I wanted to fit in, so I decided to put a few fun things in the day before, to help build excitement. One of them was my 99-year-old granny.
I asked my Y5’s “What number comes before 100?” Some of them actually guessed correctly. I told them that my granny was 99 and asked them if they wanted her to come in and read a 100-Day story, the vote was always unanimous!
Granny is really me, dressed up in a white wig and little old lady mask. One year a room helper heard my conversation with the children and thought it was just wonderful that granny was coming. I didn’t know I sounded that convincing; too funny!
You too can easily have a granny or gramps come visit. Simply plan ahead in October when masks and wigs go on sale at huge discounted prices after Halloween.
A trip to the Goodwill for an old-fashioned dress and hat + my grandmother's cameo complete the look.
I tell my little ones that I have to go pick up granny at the home, so I’ll be gone during lunch time and a room helper will pick them up after recess and bring them to our classroom.
This gives me time to change into my costume and sit in my rocking chair. I also tell them that granny is 99 and very very old.
We discuss how old people look. So they are not scared, I tell them that some people have hurt granny’s feelings by telling her that she is so old and wrinkled that she looks like a witch and that made her cry.
We discuss that that was really mean and they would never do something like that.
This fends off any fears or comments they might have when they walk through the door and see this rather creepy creature sitting in my chair.
You can always hear a pin drop when they walk in and see me. I greet them in my old-lady voice and bid them come in with my shaky hand.
I tell them that my granddaughter, Mrs. H, will soon be back, as she had to go park the car.
“Would you like granny to read you a story?” They are wide-eyed with wonder. A few ask if it’s me, but even the doubters are happy to play along.
After the story, I ask if I can use the bathroom in their classroom. It takes a minute to take off my “stuff.”
When I come out as me, they are all talking at once, and can’t wait to tell me that granny was there and read them a story! This truly cracks me up, as even the doubters can’t wait to tell me all about it, not once wondering how Mrs. H. got in the bathroom!
A few ask me if I was really granny. I ask them what they think, but never really answer their question. They all want granny to come again, but now it’s time to transition to the next activity…
I have a tool my students have fondly nick named Mr. Cruncher Muncher.
You put a piece of paper in, they turn the crank and it comes out looking like corrugated cardboard.
I LOVE the results and the students really enjoy putting their finished cut outs in Mr. Cruncher Muncher’s “mouth".
It’s a super fine motor skill, so I use it at least once a month. We discuss how their faces will change when they are old like granny, discussing glasses, wrinkles, white or gray hair, age spots etc.
They return to their seats and cut out a large oval face, drawing what they think they will look like when they are 100.
Then they run their oval face through Mr. Cruncher Muncher to really add some 3- D wrinkles! Using scraps of white and gray construction paper they add hair. This too can be run through the rollers for more awesome effects.
Girls can fold large round white paper doilies in half and glue them to the back of their "grannies" for a nice old-fashioned collar. For an antique look, dab the edges with a damp tea bag til they have a brown tone.
For an adorable 100 Day class book, give students a color choice of background paper. Have them glue their picture on and then collate their portraits in _________________’s 2107 Class Reunion Book, when 5-year-old students will be 100-years-old! This also makes an awesome 100 Day bulletin board.
