# 100th Day of School

## Overview

Students will bee able to celebrate the 100th day of school by bringing in a project representing it. They will also fill out a chart that has 100 blank squares for them to fill in.

# 1st grade 100th day of school activities

Students will complete a chart where they will count to 100. This will be an activity that they will know how to do, because it will be something that they will be woking on in math previously. We will work on this acitvity during our math time. They will be able to ask for help if they need it.

The next thing that they will do is come to school with something that they created at home to represent the 100th day of school. I will show them some examples that they can do along with sending home a paper to their parents with examples listed along with other criteria about the project.

# Additional Activities

Two of the center activities I've used the last few years on the 100th day of school are Race to 100 and 100 Grid Number Puzzles.__Race to 100__

Materials: 2 dice, 200+ craft sticks, 20 rubber bands, sentence frame

Players: 2 or more

1. Players take turns. For each turn, a player rolls the dice and picks up the appropriate number of craft sticks.

2. Every time a player has 10 sticks, s/he bundles them with a rubber band. When a player has 10 bundles of 10 sticks each, s/he puts a rubber band around them to make a large bundle of 100. After each turn the player must say, "I have __ tens and __ ones. I have ___ sticks in all" (I have this sentence frame written on a card).

3. The game ends when one player reaches 100. Each player then counts his/her total number of craft sticks and records the number.__100 Grid Number Puzzles:__ Ahead of time photocopy some completed 0-100 number grids on card and laminate. I try to copy each one on a different colored card to make it easier to manage at clean-up time. Cut up the grids in different ways. Students work in the center with a partner to put a puzzle back together. This activity creates lots of good talk as partners discuss where the pieces should go. It is also a good indicator of student's understanding of place value!

The 100th Day crown is another activity kids can make using two dice per student (if helpful) to make their sets of 10.
