I know it seems way to early in the school year to be talking about this, but the 100th day of school will be here before you know it. I was planning with a brand new teacher the other day and she was looking for fun and creative ways to celebrate the 100th day and to add some more math into the day. I shared some of my favorite books for the 100th day with her and now I want to share them with you as well.
First, here is the book that many of my ideas have come from on how to celebrate the 100th day. I do teach math 6 times per day to 6 different grade levels so I need a lot of ideas.
|This is a great book to use during read aloud time around the 100th day. It tells a story of Jessica who is asked to bring in 100 objects to celebrate the 100th day. It is a very sweet story and a lot of fun to read.|
|This is a rhyming book about different ways to make 100. This can be read during read aloud time or as part as math class. It is also a fun book for kids to put in the book boxes to read to themselves.|
|This is a story of a class that collects a penny per day. It focuses a lot on the groups of 10 that can be found in 100. It makes a great read aloud for K and 1.|
|For your Fancy Nancy loving kids, here is a great level 1 book that kids can read themselves|
|This story is modeled on the Night Before Christmas poem which makes it a lot of fun for kids and adults alike. This is probably my favorite book to read aloud and I often read it to several grades each year.|
|This is a level 2 hello reader and another great one for kids to read to themselves. The focus this time is on the different ways you can count to 100.|
Head over to Volume 20 where I have reviewed some of my favorite counting books.
