Voices: 100th Day of School Activities

As teachers, we are always looking for ways to make every day a special learning experience for our students. The number 100 has a special attraction for all of us.

Why not celebrate the100th Day of School with some activities that focus on the number 100?
There are several suggestions at the Mathwire.com web site. The 100th Day of School Activities include activities that can be used in most primary grades. Even older students will enjoy the challenge of representing the number 100 in one hundred different ways. This is a good group activity once students have had some time to think of answers on their own.

For the 100 Things We Did in School activity, one class adds one thing they did in school to their 100 Chart each day from the first day of school. Students create an ongoing memory chart they can celebrate on the 100th day and they always have a ready answer to "What did you do in school today?" Consider adding this practice to your calendar routines.

These are just a few simple ways to make the 100th day of school a special learning day.
  • How would you adapt this to your classroom?
  • What aspects of this activity work best for your grade level?
  • How will you integrate this activity into your regular curriculum lesson planning?
  • How will your students be challenged in new ways by this activity
