100th day ideas!

I am reposting this from last year, to share a couple of 100th Day ideas from kindergarten last year.  I absolutely loved these capes that the students decorated at home with their parents.  I got this awesome idea from Mrs. Miner's kindergarten.  I bought some plastic tablecloths and cut them into the correct size, then sent home with instructions for each parent.  They had to decorate their capes with 100 things.  Here is a reminder note you can edit.  However, one crafty parent realized that cutting an old Tshirt into a cape shape was easier and more durable than the plastic (you can get two capes from each shirt, using the front and back).  So you may consider doing this, instead. The kindergartners wore their capes and we counted to 100 using Harry's Kindergarten Counting Superheroes song!

It would be really fun to use the Superhero ComicMaker app ($1.99) to create some 100th day math stories and post to Seesaw!
We also planned out how to make 10 groups of 10 toppings on our "hundredth day pizza"!  The kids are making some yummy looking paper toppings.  :)  This could be recorded digitally on an interactive whiteboard using Mimio Notebook or Promethean ActivInsipire, or a tool like Popplet.

You could also use this Google Drawing to have students make a digital pizza.  They'll drag 100 ingredients onto the pizza.  Click the image to make a copy that you can use.

The kindergartners enjoyed this video about Counting to 100 by JoJo's Circus.

We also played "Guess My Number" using the free app Counting Board on our iPads.  You can use this app to have students play any game you typically play on a 100 board.  They love this app, and once they learned a few different games to play on it, they would sometimes pair up on their own with one student being the "teacher" and the other being the "guesser" and play!  Teach them to take screenshots of their work, and they can post to Seesaw and use the typing and microphone tools to explain their work.  (Have I mentioned lately how much I love Seesaw?)

Another tool I loved to use for teaching number concepts is the interactive 100 chart from We would often project this to our interactive whiteboard and play Guess My Number and other hundred chart games using our interactive board. has some other fun 100 day games, as well.  I've listed those below.


If you haven't before, this would be a great time to check out the Unite for Literacy site.  Tons of great free books, like this one:
