5 Fun Ideas to Help You Celebrate The 100th Day of School

By Elizabeth Lee , Jan 14th 2016

Congrats, you and your students are 100 days smarter!

The 100th Day of School is right around the corner. Are you ready to celebrate with your classroom? We're sharing some of our favorite celebration ideas to help you and your kids ring in your 100th day together.
1. Count to 100 in as many ways as possible.


First and foremost, use the number 100 in as many ways as you can! You can incorporate the number in almost any subject, from math to physical education.

From left to right:

- Make a "100s Day Trail Mix" with Under the Alphabet Tree.
- Get active with the "100th Day Fitness Fun" worksheet.


2. Get creative! Ask your students: what will you be like when you're 100?


Have your students dress up like they are 100 years old. Then, have them write a story about what they think they'll be doing when they are 100 years old! This is such a fun way to get their imagination flowing.

From left to right:

- If your students need a prompt, grab this fill-in-the-blank "If I Were...100" worksheet.
- Get inspired by Eberhart's Explorer's 100th day dress-up.


3. Remind your students that they're 100 days smarter!

- Get creative with your very own "Smarties" pun.


4. Assign a 100-day project.

- Ask your students to incorporate 100 of something on a canvas for a fun mixed media art project.


5. Read a book that celebrates 100!


Reading a book that celebrates 100 is a great way to encourage literacy and language development.
