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.

100 day crafts, 100 day activities, 100 Day writing prompts, 100 Day bulletin boards, 100 Day bookmarks, 100 Day centers, 100 Day certificates, 100 Day GamesI 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.

100 day crafts, 100 day activities, 100 Day writing prompts, 100 Day bulletin boards, 100 Day bookmarks, 100 Day centers, 100 Day certificates, 100 Day GamesCompleted 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.

100 day crafts, 100 day activities, 100 Day writing prompts, 100 Day bulletin boards, 100 Day bookmarks, 100 Day centers, 100 Day certificates, 100 Day GamesThe 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.

100 day crafts, 100 day activities, 100 Day writing prompts, 100 Day bulletin boards, 100 Day bookmarks, 100 Day centers, 100 Day certificates, 100 Day GamesGoing 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.

100 day crafts, 100 day activities, 100 Day writing prompts, 100 Day bulletin boards, 100 Day bookmarks, 100 Day centers, 100 Day certificates, 100 Day GamesTo 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.

For your special snack that day, for continued math fun, why not provide ice cream with 10 different topping options.

100 day game dots and boxes, 100 day center activityToday'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.

These 100 Day puzzles are a quick, easy and fun way to help students count and sequence numbers 1-10, count backwards from 10 to 1, as well as skip count by 10s to 100.

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.

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.

1-2-3 Come Add To 100 With Me

I must confess I'm a flitter.  I endeavor to try and stay focused 'til I complete a task, but this proves rather difficult when I'm doing research on the Internet. 

dollar words, 100 dollar words, how much is your name worth worksheet, 100 point words, dollar word clues, list of dollar words,dollar word game, dollar word list, 740 list of dollar words, 100 day games, 100 day centers, 100 day activities, 100 day ideas 100 day lessons, 100 day math activities, counting to 100 activities, addition games, addition activities, 100 dollar point grid, One thing leads to another, and pretty soon I find it's late afternoon and I haven't accomplished a thing.  I've enjoyed learning all sorts of trivia, and have added to my already too full list of things I want to design, but I've gotten off the beaten track.   Anyone out there do something similar while planning a lesson?

dollar words, 100 dollar words, how much is your name worth worksheet, 100 point words, dollar word clues, list of dollar words,dollar word game, dollar word list, 740 list of dollar words, 100 day games, 100 day centers, 100 day activities, 100 day ideas 100 day lessons, 100 day math activities, counting to 100 activities, addition games, addition activities, 100 dollar point grid, The result of my craziness, has come up with something I think your students will enjoy, and works well for a 100 Day celebration too. 

I stumbled upon several math sites that asked students, "How much is your name worth?" 

In order for children to calculate this, each letter is assigned a value according to its position in the alphabet.  i.e., The letter A is worth 1, B is worth 2, all the way up to the letter Z, which is worth 26.  

I've included a bookmark key you can run off and give each student, that will make things easier, as well as a valuation worksheet you can also use.

So that younger students don't get confused, I made the numbers in red, green, and blue so that they stand out.

After students get the hang of this concept by adding up their name, challenge them to find a word that is worth 100.  So that I could find a few words, without having to rack my brain, I Googled words worth 100

To my surprise, this led to the term "Dollar" words.  Quite a few teachers all over the planet seem to be challenging their kiddo's to find the value of words.

cov dollar words packetInstead, do this activity in class.  You want your students to practice all sorts of standards, as they think up words and add up numbers. 

You also want them to have the joy of discovering their own 100-point word, which can be pretty exciting. Click on the link to view/download the 100 Dollar Word packet.

After your students have worked on this assignment in class, you can share 2 word calculation sites that I found: Balmoral Software and Math Lair. I think it would be fun for them to practice their keyboarding skills, typing in a variety of words, names and numbers to see their values.

I'm not sure who came up with the original idea, as there is a plethora of sites, activities, and information about calculating the value of names, words, etc.  The "game" was also listed in several math-activity books like Math For Smarty Pants by Marilyn Burns.

In his defense, Hemingway shot back: "Poor Faulkner. Does he really think big emotions come from big words? He thinks I don't know the ten-dollar words. I know them all right, but there are older and simpler and better words, and those are the ones I use."

One of the reasons I think this is such a tremendous activity, is because it is a great mental workout, which involves all sorts of other things besides counting and addition.  Students need to come up with a strategy, which involves critical thinking.

So that older students get the much-needed addition practice in, have them figure out their word, and then check it with a calculator.  After they have done a specific amount of "ciphering" allow them to use the calculators, so that they are able to practice more problems.

With so many students working on so many words, teachers may find it difficult to give students immediate feedback, which speeds up the learning process.  However, allowing students to use calculators, to check their answers that they have come up with by themselves, solves the problem and guarantees correct results. 

For many younger students, using a calculator is a first-time experience and makes the entire process less frustrating and more fun.  The use of a dictionary helps build vocabulary, reinforces spelling and gives them all sorts of dictionary-skill practice, such as alphabetizing.  You could also introduce your students to a thesaurus if you haven't already done so.

Besides problem-solving math, you can also review parts of speech.  Which words are nouns, verbs, or adjectives?  Did you come up with any compound words?

prefix suffix posterSo that this activity is not overwhelming for your struggling students, break things down.   Are you studying prefixes and suffixes?  Have students make a list of them and give them a value.  

A root word may not add up to 100, but how does adding a prefix or suffix help? For example, adding ed to a verb increases its value by 9.  Adding ing to a verb increases its value by 30 and reduces the target value for the root verb to 70.

The strategy then, is  breaking down a large problem into smaller ones that are more easily solved.

Are you stuck at 99? Can you add an S to make the word pluralAdding S to a word increases its value by 19 and reduces the target value for the root word to 81, offering you a teachable moment to review the concept of singular and plural.

After students have worked on this 100-Day word challenge for the allotted time, give them some help, by suggesting clues for the different "dollar words." For example, "Something you'll find in all bathrooms is this plural dollar word."  Answer: toilets

There are a variety of lists out there with more, but mine is alphabetized, checked, student-appropriate, spelled correctly, does not contain proper names and lists only real words.

Print off my clues and have each student choose one, or have children work in groups with the same clue, to see who can figure it out first.

What was the shortest dollar word?  I've included a worksheet for that.  There is one that features the dollar bill if you are doing Dollar words, as well as one with a 100-dollar bill at the top, if you're using this for a 100-Day activity.

Honduras, Milwaukee, and Tallahatchie were all 100-point places that I found.  Kristin, Henrietta, Paulette and Suzanne, were 100-point names, and Wednesday is the day of the week that is worth 100.

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. 

100 day activities, 100 day lessons, ideas for 100 day, 100 day games, 100 day centers, math games, time games, telling time to the hour activities, analog time, digital time, 100 day bulletin boards, 100 day writing prompts, 100 day crafts, 100 day certificates, 100 day snacksWith 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.

presidents day clipBecause Presidents' Day is in February, and presidents are often featured on our currency, I taught a themed-unit on money at this time.   Identifying coins and knowing their values, was a Y5 report card standard

Our 100-Day also fell in February, so I liked to give my students some 100-Day coin ativities, to practice and reinforce the monetary concepts I was trying to teach them.

(Play on the word sense intended.)  There's a fun variety of different activities included.

As a motivational incentive, I showed them the play money I had run off on light green paper.  I've included a template in the Making Cents packet, so you can make some for your kiddo's too.  Trust me, they will get very excited over this!

My Y5's earned bills through out the day for completing tasks, winning/participating in timed-tasks etc.  At the end of the day, students could trade one of their bills for one of their friends. 

Hopefully they had earned enough of their own, to collect one from each classmate.  I never had a child who hadn't earned enough, as my Y5's really enjoyed our 100-Day activities. Everyone stayed focused and on-task.

(Dots, X's, stickers, etc.) Click on the link to view/download the 100 Day coloring page.

If you didn't see the 100 Day crown that incorporated 100 shapes (click on the link to grab it.) In the 100-Day Crown packet, I've included 3 simpler crowns.

Since quite a few people celebrate 100 Day in February, I designed a heart-shaped crown.  Run off on a variety of colors of construction paper.  Students trim.  Using 10 different colored markers, children make 10 groups of 10 dots, inside the 100 number; trim and glue to the center of the heart. 

Staple the heart to a sentence strip or bulletin board boarder to make an easy 100 Day crown. If your kiddo's are in PK, you can skip the counting by 10's to 100 dot portion, and simply have them color the number. 

100 Rocks! is another easy crown to make.  Since it has 5 balls on the top of the points, have students make twenty groups of 5 dots inside the crown, and then skip count to 100 by 5's.  I grouped my dots to look like the 5 on a dice pattern.  Run off on construction paper, trim and glue or staple to a paper headband.

I purposely did not make 100, as I discovered that no matter what "guessing" activity I gave my Y5's, they were always guessing the number 100, simply because it was 100 Day. 

I've included a guess-timation page, where students write down how many circles they think are on the crown and then compare their answer to the correct one.  This is a nice review of the math terms greater than, less than and equal to. 

Buy a pack of 475 Avery mini-colored dot-stickers for less than $2, and have your kiddo's get some fine motor practice in, while they peel and press the dots on the circles of their crown.  Flat-backed rhinestones are also fun, and add that finishing touch.  Click on the link to view/download the 100 Day Crown packet.

Before hand, we discussed how a person ages, and things that were typical of the aging process.  i.e. hair turning gray and white, wrinkles, sagging skin, the need to wear glasses etc. I reminded them of what "granny" had looked like the day before.

This was really me dressed up to the hilt to look like an old woman for story time.  Click on the link to check out the details of this fun activity.

When they were done, they ran their portrait through the "cruncher muncher."

This is a roller tool that crinkles paper to look like corrugated cardboard.  The result was a nice "wrinkled" appearance which you can see in the sample photo.  100 day activities, 100 day coloring pages, ideas for 100 day, 100 day crafts, 100 day bulletin boards, 100 day banners, greater than and less than activities, guesstimation activities, 100 day games, 100 day centers, aging a photo apps, when I'm 100 what will I look like, 100 day crowns, counting to 100, skip counting by 10's skip counting by 5s, activities for skip counting to 100, The completed pictures made an adorable 100 Day bulletin board

This year I thought it would be fun to make the self-portraits smaller and have students draw themselves inside an oval.  When they are done, they choose a colored pennant and glue their photo in place.

I've included templates for the first and last pennants, as well as one for the boys, plus one for the girls.   Make sure to make one of yourself. Click on the link to view/download the Oldies One Hundred Day Banner.

Since there were more positive reviews about Oldify, I downloaded that.  It has the added bonus of being able to record your voice.  The eyes blink, the mouth moves and your photo appears a bit "real".

There are quite a few free "age me" apps, but "you get what you pay for" seems to ring pretty true here.  Instead of, or in addition to, having students draw themselves at the ripe old age of 100, you can take a head shot of each of your students, age them with the app and then print them off.

These would look awesome on the Oldies Banner.

A simpler banner, involves reinforcement holes. Since they are pretty inexpensive, (you can buy a pack of 924 for less than $2) I liked to use them quite a bit with my Y5's.  Peeling and pressing them on something, was great fine motor skill practice.

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

100 day activities, 100 day centers, 100 day puzzles, skip counting by 10's, skip counting activities, 100 day games, happy 100 day, 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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.
