100th Day Linky Party

Over at Teacher Blog Addict they are celebrating blogging for 100 days!
They are asking: How do you celebrate the 100th day of school with your class?
Here's a few that we do in our classrooms:
1) 100 years old portrait! I give students a paper shaped in an oval for the face and have them draw what they will look like when they are 100 years old. After they finish drawing their face I have them squish the oval and when they open it up it is a wrinkly looking face. They then glue the face on a paper and draw their body under it (it looks like caricature). Then they write what they will do when they 100 years old. They love it! Wish I had pictures...will take this year.

2) We count object by tens to get to 100.

3)Fruit Loop Necklace I give students a laminated 100 chart and give them fruit loops. I tell them each row of 10 needs to be a color and then when they fill up their board they string it altogether for a 100's day necklace!

4) 100s chart game with money.  This game is very similar to the one 3rd Grade Grideiron (Click HERE to check her game out) posted but with a money spin. Pairs of students get a  laminated100 chart (or two if you want each student to have their own...the game lasts long that way) and a dice with pictures of the coins. Students take turns rolling the coin dice and put an X on the hundreds chart for the value. For example if a student rolls a quarter they will mark 25 number boxes. They keep going until they reach 100!

5) We read lots of stories about the 100th day of school. Here are some favorites:
