Most schools have activities to celebrate the 100th day of school.
April 10th is the 100th day of 2011 so here are some easy ways to celebrate the 100th day of the year.
If you have very young children, 100 things might be too much for them but instead of 100, you can try 10, and then when you get 10 groups of 10 things you can show them what 100 is!
I have included a 100 square chart for any activities you might want to do with 100 items. You can print it out as many times as you wish.
Say 100 words
See how many times you can write your name until you have 100 letters
Make a chart with squares that show 100, then put 1 cheerio in each square.
Name 100 people that you know.
Name 100 songs or books that you like.
Name 100 animals.
Name 100 things you like to do
Name 100 different kinds of food
Use your dolls to help and count 100 fingers and toes
Count 100 cars
Count 100 stairs
Count 100 claps
Count to 100 tiles or bricks
Jump 100 times
Take 100 steps *talk about how far 100 steps will take you and then see how close you are to being right.
Tired of counting? Have a snack
See what you can use to make 100 :
How about 1 graham cracker quarter and 2 ritz crackers.
(some people might like to use 2 double stuffed oreos!)
Lunch time? Count out 100 noodles!
Using your imagination you can incorporate 100 into most activities you do today and your charge or your child won’t even know that they are learning math concepts!
