Hundred’s Day is a BIG deal in our class.
How great is it that we can turn a number into a cause for celebration, right?
It’s such great review, and students are completely engaged and excited to show their skills. For this reason, we usually end up extending the fun into Hundred’s WEEK! There’s just too much learning to pack into one day.
Here are some of the things we do:
We review counting to 100 by making giant collaborative hundred’s charts together.
This so great for teamwork, and it is great assessment for me!
*Hint: If students are using felt pens to alternate colors (for odd/even), have some white squares to glue over top of any mistakes so they don’t have to start all over again!
Hundred’s Chart Strategy Games
We use our Hundred’s Chart to play a number of different “games”. Here are a few:
100 Cats Poster
Here’s a poster we made together to celebrate hundreds day. It’s called “100 Cats and 1 Mouse”.
To make it, each students drew 3 or 4 different cats to glue on a blank poster. Then, I made one tiny mouse to hide amongst the cats (while students were out for lunch). When they came back, they had so much fun searching for the mouse, and then inviting anyone who walked by the class to find the mouse, too.
We eventually put it out in the hallway so we could listen to people talking about it. ( You can grab a free template to make this poster with your students HERE. Enjoy!
