100th Day of School Story Books

The 100th Day of School has a great roster of story books to read.
On the 100th Day of School we talk about the importance of the day, read a short book about the 100th Day, and we make our 100th Day Masks.
My kids don’t just color their masks.  I challenge them to mark off 5 equal areas on each numeral, and draw 5 groups of 6 objects on each—plus 3 more on the zeros and 4 more on the one.  

Early finishers can help the kids who need it, or they can go to one of my 100th Day centers.  

Don’t forget to set out a 100th Day book basket with all the usual suspects, some of which are listed below.  And, add a task for each book, to keep kids enthralled.


Read Aloud Books for the 100th Day of School:

1)      I’ll Teach My Dog 100 Words by Michael Frith

·         List your 100 favorite words

2)      Miss Bindergarten Celebrates the 100th Day of School, by Joseph Slate

·         How could you celebrate the 100th Day?

3)      100th Day Worries, by Margery Culver

·         What would you love to collect 100 of?  Draw it and tell why.

4)      One Hundred Hungry Ants, by Elinor J. Pinczes

·         Write you own book of animals: One Hundred Hungry ______

5)      The Wolf’s Chicken Stew, by Keiko Kasza

·         List 100 things you could put in a stew

Since we've been in school for 100 days and read 100 books, I like to have kids cut 100 tiny book covers (from those Scholastic Book Club glossy cover pages).  My kids help me glue them to a large chart sheet and we write the numbers 1 - 100.

If you’d like the template for the 100th Day Super Hero Mask, as well as super-creative activities in math, reading, writing, social studies and science (which, of course, you can enjoy all year), along with a Counting MP3, please stop by and take a look.

I’m wishing you a wonderful and memorable 100th Day of school!
