To finished up our celebration of making it to 100 days of school we also read the book “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle.  We then created a very hungry caterpillar that is 100 circles long.  Students were separated into groups and they were given a set of 10 circles that they had to put in numerical order.  Then we put the groups of circles in the correct sequence.

Today we celebrated the 100th day of school and what an exciting day it was.  We started off by working out to our favorite Count to 100 song “Count to 100 Everyday” by Jack Hartmann.

Afterwards we reviewed our place value that we’ve been working on all year during calendar time by playing Starfall’s Place Value Game.  We worked together as a class and counted all the way to 100 by groups of 10’s and by 1’s.

Then we read 100th day interactive book also from Starfall and then we brainstormed things we could count in the classroom that would equal 100.  Students partnered up and found many things such as library books and writing paper.  Then we talked about things we could count in our homes that would equal 100.  We counted out 100 Fruit Loops as part of our snack and made 100 Fruit Loop necklaces.

Finally we finished up the day by making 100 day glasses and eating the left over Fruit Loops.  It was a fun and successful day, happy 100th day of school only 82 more left to go!

Today we celebrated our 100th day of school!  We started by rereading “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” by Eric Carle and then created a list of things that the very hungry caterpillar could eat 100 of.  We then created a caterpillar that is 100 circles long.  The class was put into small groups where the groups made a set of 10 circles and wrote numbers on them.
