Happy 100th Day of School!

It is one of my favorite days of the school year: the 100th day! This day was jam-packed with activities and fun. First, students were invited to dress up like they might look when they are 100 years old.


When students entered the classroom, their first job was to try and find 100 chocolate kisses that I had hidden around the room and place them on a 100 grid.

By lunch, there were just four chocolate kisses that were left to be discovered!

 Hidden in between some books.

Next up, students completed eight activities that explored the theme of one hundred days of school.

Students stacked 100 cups. Watch this fun time-lapse video.

Students created something using 100 LEGO bricks.


Students made a bead necklace using ten beads of ten different colors.

How many licks does it take to finish a lollipop? 100 (or more!) Students recorded each lick and then counted by tens.


Next, students linked number cards from one to 100 in order.


Students used 100 marshmallows to build a structure.


Here, students stamp 100 gumballs….ten gumballs in ten colors!


Finally, students read a decodable reader called “When I am 100…” and practiced spelling the high-frequency word when.

Students also were invited to create a collection of 100 items. Look at these fun collections!

Even the teachers got into the 100th-day spirit!

We ended the day with a parade around the classrooms to see all the different collections, and we enjoyed 100 cupcakes!

But the best part of the 100th day of school is celebrating the special friendships we have made this year!

See you tomorrow for day 101!

100 Days Smarter!


Happy 100th day of school! We had a fun-filled learning day which began with students arriving to school dressed up like they might look when they are 100.




Of course, Ms. Horibe and I had to get in on the fun!

During reading centers, students tried to write 100 words that rhyme. Another activity had students fill in the blank regarding 100 items…read on to see what some students said:

After lunch, we made 100th day trail mix. Yum!


The day ended with a 100th day parade, where we visited each classroom to explore the different collections.





Then, students were treated to 100 cupcakes!


I can’t wait to see what fun the 101st day of school brings!
