Hooray, hooray! It's 100th Day! Today we had our much anticipated 100th Day of Kindergarten! My Kinders and I were so excited to come to school today. Our day was filled with all things 100 - everything from counting to crafts. I took lots of pictures, of course. I wish I had permission to show the kiddos' faces because the look of excitement and delight as they worked *quietly* in the six different 100-themed stations. Yes, they worked quietly! There was happy chatter around the room, but no crazy noise. I was tired at the end of the day, but very happy - this has got to be my best 100th Day ever!

Kinder Bakery - working in small groups, the kids counted out 100 sprinkles to create one of a kind cupcakes with the help of a mom. They filled out a "recipe" card (see below).
I got the idea for these counting mats from Pinterest. They are laminated so that I can keep them from year to year. (I made a class set because I thought they would be helpful when we study numbers to 100.) The kids brought 100 small items from home, and with the help of a mom, they counted them by tens.
I didn't take a close-up, but the little slips of paper seen in many photos are the kids' schedules. When they visited a station, they got a sticker. Click *here* for a copy.
100 Stamp Books. Using 10 ten frames and 10 different rubber stamps, they kids had fun creating a unique book to practice counting by tens to 100.
Secret code. This is an older resource shared by one of my fabulous teaching partners, so I don't have a link. Kinders filled in numbers on a 100s chart to reveal a hidden picture.
As an optional activity, students & parents were invited to send me a photo of a collection of 100 items that were too big to fit into a zipper bag. Several students did so, and we enjoyed a fun slide show as we ate our 100 item snack. One little girl's collection was so creative, I asked her mom for permission to share it on my blog. Happily, she has allowed me to share this fun collection.
Hooray for 100th Day! What did your class do?
