There are so many great ideas out there for the 100th Day of School.  Only primary teachers know that this is a BIG DEAL!

100 Days Smarter Activities:  Books

Here are a few of my 100th Day of School books (I know… hoarder… right?)  Some of these books are great for your emergent readers and some are great for a whole class read-aloud.

100 Days Smarter Activities: Additional Activities

We do a lot of counting on the 100th Day of School!  I had my class use the 100’s chart to keep track!

We also do compare amounts.   Students could use the 100’s chart or the could organize their counting with this counting mat.  Then they complete the response page.

Students also compare the weights to two cups filled with various items (in the amount of 100… naturally!)

The ever fun… Write to 100!  You can add a die to make it a partner activity.

    I LOVE your new HTML way to post! It's much easier, especially if I'm reading your blog on my phone. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Mrs. Saoud February 9 at 3:57 pm

    What I Have Learned

    How do you clean the stamps? Are the kids repsonsible for cleaning them off in some way, or do they just stay inked all the time? I'm getting ready to set up stamping in my room and I'm trying to think through the logistics! I love to see all your ideas!

    • Deedee February 9 at 9:53 pm

      Hi Amy. I don't clean the stamps. I just leave them messy ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Logistics hints: I took the lids off the stamping containers. I used to leave them on, but when the kids would open them all of the stamps would bounce out. I also check the stamping station after each rotation at first to make sure the stamps were put away correctly. I still check them when a few of my sweeties go there… ha! I also talk to them about getting ink on their hands. I tell them it will happen and they can wash their hands when they are done… BUT I don't want to have them get ink on their hands on purpose (and I tell them that I can TELL if they do it on purpose [insert evil eye].

      I hope that helps.

    Love the cute monster! Thank you for the tip on the hyperlinks. I hope to get back to linking up with you for Peek at My Week in the next week or two. We are getting ready to start our RtI second cycle so I will be linking up my RtI plans again. Thank you for doing the Peek at My Week!

    Do you go over your morning work every day?

    • Deedee February 9 at 11:55 pm

      No, most of the activities are super familiar to the students, so I don't need to teach them what to do. When they ask me, "What does the sentence say?" I usually say, " What do you think it says?" They almost always can figure it out. Same thing with some of the other sheets. They are familiar tasks, so I just say, "What do you think you need to do?" When they tell me, I just smile at them… and off they go!

    HMTL Map looks awesome! I am going to explore with that this week and maybe by next Sunday my problem of lack of links in my PDF will be solved!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks so much for sharing!! Also, your new blog design is SOOOOO cute!

    I love your plans, and can't wait to figure out how to do this as well! It would make it so easy when I go to look at this year's plans next year too! Then I would know exactly what TPT resource I used and everything!

    Thanks for the awesome linky too!!

    I L.O.V.E. your new plans and your new blogover! You taught me to do visual plans in the first place, so now, you'll have to show us all how to do your new way to post!
    Thanks for hosting,

    Deedee, I love your new blogover! It is so cute! I have taught/used MWS for the last 3-4 years. The success my students have shown is amazing so I REALLY want to venture out and try LWS. I have just never found a good way to make it work. I'd love for some pointers of good units for start up and even a reference post if you've had one. Thanks for your help!!

    Deedee, thank you for sharing your "Peek at my Week"! I love your link-up! I am considering linking up and sharing my week, but as I look at yours and other wonderful bloggers, it looks somewhat tedious… although inspiring and fun! About how long does it take for you to complete your "Peek at my Week" each week?! I'd love some input! Also, my students also love stamps! I can't seem to keep the ink pads from drying up… do you also have the same problem? Any tips or best places to buy ink pads for cheap?! Thanks a bunch!

      I have used the same scented pad since the beginning of the year. My poor children probably think I only have one color! It is called "Scented Stamp Pad" [catchy name] and it is made by Educational Insights. I am 99% sure I bought them from Amazon (since I buy almost everything from Amazon).

  • Christen Sistare February 12 at 1:28 am

    Would you mind sharing how you are using Deanna Jump's pack in Reading Workshop? Are you reading a text & modeling how to do the response and then have them do it?

    • Deedee February 12 at 2:11 am

      Sure! Right now we are reading informational texts. Since we are learning about weather, I read a Scholastic Vocabulary book called "Weather." We then looked at some of the features of informational texts and put them in our notebook. As time progresses, I will use the notebooks as a way to respond to literature and informational texts. The lend themselves to virtually any book.
