- After reading many books about the 100th day of school and counting the number of school days each day, we will participate in the following activities:

- 2. Each child will make a crown that says “I am 100 Days Smarter!” (S)he will list what he/she has learned this year.
- 3. The child will write the numbers 1-100 in a 10×10 grid and then match 100 beads to the numbers. Next he/she will make a necklace.
- 4. Each child will trace his/her feet and hands and cut them out. On one poster the class will glue their hands and count by 5’s to 100. On a 2nd poster they’ll glue their feet in pairs and count the toes by 10’s.
- 5. On separate posters write the following prompts at the top: “I would like to eat 100 ____.”; “I would not like to eat 100 ___.”; “If I had 100 hands, I could ___.”; “If I had $100, I would buy ____.” Have each student add their answers to the posters.
- 6. Bring in a variety of healthy snacks – 10 different kinds. Have each child take 10 of each to make 100 snacks.
