3 Ways to Celebrate the 100th Day of School + FREEBIE

Celebrating the 100th day of school for both teachers and students is a big deal!

We celebrate 100 days of…

  • success with writing
  • reading improvement
  • making friends
  • counting
  • losing teeth
  • having fun while learning
  • birthdays
  • sharing ideas
  • learning math concepts
  • getting along
  • sight word automaticity
  • and so much more!

Count the days of school on a number line.

A couple of weeks before the 100th day, you may want to announce to the class that the big day is approaching. Young learners tend to be very visual, so put a star on the class number line to show where 100 is. A clip or clothespin is perfect for marking the current day and then move the clip every day. Students get so excited when they see how close they are to the 100th day!

Count the number of school days on your Classroom Number Line, and mark the 100th Day with a star!

Send home a 100th day of school project assignment.

Then send home a 100th day project assignment that is to be brought in on the 100th day of school. We have made an editable in PowerPoint parent letter for you that you can download at the bottom of this post!

Here are some very creative project examples our students made over the years:

Counting pizza toppings by 10!
Counting apple buttons by tens on tree branches!
Counting bunches of balloons by 10!
100 balloons!
100 laces on a baseball by 2’s!

On the 100th day of school, students can take turns presenting their projects before posting them in the hall for all to see.

Do 100’s day classroom rotations!

Students love going room to room within your team level doing different 100th day activities with each teacher! (Teachers love it too because you only have one activity to plan for!)

Each teacher simply plans a fun activity that reinforces the concept of 100. (Or just provide various activities throughout the day in your own room.)

ALL of the activities below and MORE are included in our 100 Days Smarter Activity Pack!
