100th Day Celebrations!

. . . 98, 99, 100!! YEAH! The big day is here! It has been such good practice counting to finally reach 100 . Every morning we would add a straw to our “How Many Days at School?” Ones bucket. Every time we reached 10 straws we would put an elastic around them and put them in the Tens bucket. Now that we have 10 groups of 10 we put an elastic around all of the groups and put them in the Hundreds bucket. A daily lesson on place value, counting by 10′s, and number sense.

To celebrate, we did many 100 activities. This is the banner that welcomed the students to start off our exciting day:

 

Happy 100 Day!

 

First we made “I am 100 Days Smarter” hats. I PRE CUT 10 strips of different coloured paper PRE GLUED them to a headband. (Find a good show on TV the night before and get gluing! My shows were Whitney and Criminal Minds!)  We kept the headbands flat, while we added 10 stickers to each strip of paper.  Once finished, they curled the strips by rolling the strip on a marker. An adult wrapped the headband around their head to measure, and stapled it to their size. They looked SO AWESOME!!

Once finished their hats, they moved to the next activity. Bingo dabbing 100 dots onto a page, divided into 10 sections. A great exercise in counting.

Our Grade 5 Math Buddies came to help us with our Roll to 100 Game. Each pair got a 100 chart and once dice.  Their job was to roll the dice, identify that number, and colour in that many squares, starting at 1 and working their way to 100.  Before they started they were to estimate how many rolls it would take to colour in 100 squares.  This was a fun partner game. It involves estimation, subatization, counting and exposure to the 100′s chart.

After Recess, we were hungry! So, we made a special 100 day trail mix. I put one plate of one small food (i.e.: marshmallows, Fruit Loops, Goldfish etc.) on each table and the kids would put 10 pieces of that food on their own 100′s chart. We started at 1 with Fruit Loops and ended at 10, then I got a new food, marshmallows. They started at 11 and ended at 20 with the marshmallows, and so on. They LOVED doing this, and most of them gobbled up all 100 pieces once we were done. Kudos to the kids for not eating any of it until I said it was okay! A tempting little activity!!

Thank you to the parents that helped supply the bags and boxes of food for this special snack.

What a successful 100′s day!
