During our reading centers, each child received 4 or 5 squares of paper. They were to write one word per paper, which would give us 100 words when finished. They glued papers to a couple sheets of poster board. I loved that it was fun and bright.
We have been learning about how things move with this little book, so I wanted to incorporate this into our 100th Day. We went to the gym and participated in 6 different activities for 100 seconds spent on each activity. After completing each activity, groups decided whether they pushed, pulled or both at the station. They had a clipboard with a recording sheet that they took to each station.

We built with 100 cups and made 100 art using a black 1 and two 0s.

We have been working on handwriting, so students practiced today in 10 frames. Each letter was practiced 5-10 times in the 10 frame. They ended up writing 100 letters neatly. It was a fun way to practice on the 100th Day.
I cut apart a 100 chart and students put them back together again. I had 5 at the station and each was a different color to make it easier to sort the pieces. We also worked to write our numbers to 100 on adding machine tape.
