Last week, we had a truly special day in our kindergarten classroom – it was the 100th day of school! Each year, I am reminded of how quickly the days go by, and how much learning takes place in such a short amount of time.
To celebrate, we engaged in a variety of activities to recognize this special occasion. The first and most important activity was the Hundredth Day Crown! The kids loved creating their own paper crown with numbers from 1 to 100 as decorations. Once their crowns were complete, the students proudly showed them off to their classmates.
Another fun activity was the Hundred Day Roll & Color Activity. On this worksheet, kids used their math skills to color the 100th day coloring sheet according to the numbers rolled. It’s a great way to practice counting to 100 and work on basic math facts.
Yet another activity we did on the hundredth day of school was a Hundreds Sorting Activity. During this activity, the kids sorted and counted up to one hundred with various objects objects that they brought in to share! Whether it’s counting by twos, threes, or tens, it is an excellent opportunity to practice counting and sorting skills.
Finally, we completed the day with a read aloud: The Night Before the 100th Day of School. We then completed an If I Had $100 writing activity. On this worksheet, the kids used their imagination to list all the things they would do with $100. We then shared our ideas in a class discussion, which is always a highlight of the day.
All in all, it’s a fun and exciting day for everyone in the kindergarten classroom! Celebrating the hundredth day of school reminds us of how far we’ve come and how much progress we’ve made as a class.
