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.

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!
