Monday Math Literature Volume 19

Missed last week's post?  Check it out here!

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 way to get more ideas about celebrating 100 days no matter which grade you teach.  You might find so many ideas that you need to spend a week celebrating the 100th day.  Remember how much kids love learning with themes?  Here is your chance for a very fun, very math based theme.

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.  
This is another great read aloud for a wide range of grades.  This is a story about Graham, a boy who is not excited about the 100th day until he realizes his birthday will fall on the same day.  It always happens that someones birthday is on the 100th day and this book is a great way to celebrate that.  
Head over to Volume 20 where I have reviewed some of my favorite counting books.
