100th Day of School

Updated on January 3, 2014

Activities for the 100th Day of School

Young children are learning to count and measure time. One of the ways we can help them is by keeping track of the days that pass from the first day of school until we reach the magic number 100.

Here you will find activities for learning to count to 100 as well as 100th day of school celebration ideas. Keep track of the number of days of school during calendar time. Daily practice in counting will help children understand the meaning of 100.

100th Day of School Celebration - Skip Counting to 100

The Hundredth day of School Celebration is the culmination of the Skip Counting activities for the year. Children are also able to think back on just how long 100 days are and to experience time in a meaningful way. I like to talk with them about all the things they remember doing in the process to learn skip counting during the past 100 days.

Now that the children can skip count by all or most of the numbers from 1 to 12 it is surely time to celebrate. The following books show how some classes celebrate. Be sure to leave a note below letting us all know how you celebrate.

Schools usually count only the days in school. Homeschoolers often count all the days and every day is a day of learning for homeschoolers. Because of this, the 100th day of school may fall in mid-February for school children but could be celebrated any time of the year for homeschoolers.

Counting to 100 Song

Visit the zoo while counting from 1 to 100. This video teaches the number to 100 with both objects and numerals. It repeats the numbers after every fifth number while writing in the numerals. Your children will be attracted to the beautiul color illustrations of zoo animals while being attracted to the numerals when popping onto the screen in time to the music.

Be sure to take lots of pictures as you count down to the 100th day of school so that you can share your activities with other classrooms or other homeschoolers. Wizzley is a fun, free and easy to use site for publishing articles about the ways you have counted down the days to the 100th day of school. How about writing 100 articles for Wizzley?

Come write about celebrating the 100th Day of School on Wizzley, a fun and easy place to express your opinion:

      I think my grandson took in 100 tic tacs. Knowing him, he probably ate them all himself!

      I probably have already commented before. When my son had this is public school he went easy on me...just took 100 toothpicks. I don't remember what my oldest daughter did, but my middle daughter wanted to take 100 My Little Ponies....which she did! We bought them all over the place, some new, some at yard sales, and some at the flea market. Just the other day my mom asked me whatever happened to them. I don't really know, but we did have them for years later.

      My grandson has done 100 animals using his small plastic animal collection. I love to see these projects. Some are so very clever.
