    I've been online and it's so overwhelming how many activities there are. Does anyone have any really good activities specifically for Kinder that works? My K team is going to do a rotation for the
    100th day. We will do the same activity with all 7 classes. Any ideas?:thanks:

    I have done the typical activities. The children bring in 100 of an item, string 100 beads, count to 100, Make a class snack with 100 cheerios, 100 raisens, 100 choco. chips.and 100 capt. crunch,. We also guess how far 100 feet would be then measure(outside) We read a lot of 100 day books and place 100 foot cutouts along the hallway (I number them) Simple but the kids love these activities!

    I fill up different sized jars with different items.....pretzles, mini marshmallows, sweet tarts, buttons, etc. One jar has exactly 100 items in it. The kids need to guess which one of the seven jars they think it is. There is a small prize for the winners.
    They also pop 100 balloons in the gym. We time it to see how long it takes and the next years classs trieds to beat the record. Oh that may not work for seven classes!!! Too much blowing up balloons! They also draw a picture of themselves now and what they think they will look like when they are 100. Those are hilarious.

    How do you manage to get 100 balloons? Do the parents bring them in?

    they are fairly cheap. We have a party store in our town that sells bags of balloons. The 7th and 8th graders in our school blows them up for us. You could have parents bring them.........and blow them up for you!

    I think I will do the balloon activity this year. Sounds like fun!


    We make 100's crowns. Cut a large piece of construction paper and have students decorate it with a hundred of something- stickers, stamps, etc. Maybe do 10 a day for 10 days...

    We do a group snack- bring in 100 of something to share and make a trail mix of sorts- like marshmallows, raisins, pretzels, m & m's, etc.

    Exercises-count by 10's (or ones if they have alot of energy that day!)

    Decorate the number 100 (written in bubble letters) with beans, pasta, etc.

    Last year I did:

    We wrote 100 words that we knew.

    We walked 100 steps.

    Did a 100 piece snack.

    Made 100 day crowns.

    If you had an air compressor and some parent volunteers you might be able to do it.

    This is my first year teaching kindergaretn so I've been asking the other teachers I teach with for some ideas. We are going to string 100 Fruit Loops and make necklaces, make 100's crowns, and make 100 Day snack. I am also going to number 100 Hershey Kisses and "hide" them around the room while they are in P.E. They will look for them around the room and we will mark off the numbers on our number chart. I'm sure we will also do some kind of sorting activity and try to see how many ways we can make 100.

    I have done the make a picture of yourself when you are 100 and do a dictation of what you will be like when you are 100. They are hilarious, the kids talking about their grandchildren and where they will live (Florida!). When I do the pictures I have tracers of a generic head and different skin colored paper. the kids trace and cut and then crumple the paper to make it wrinkled and then use different color cotton for hair. They turn out really cute.

    I like to read 100 Hundred Hungry Ants and then hide 100 die cut ants that are numbered 1 through 100 around the room. Then the kids hunt for them and then put them in order, 10 per row, on the pocket chart. We also split a paper down the center and write about 100 things that they would like and 100 things that they would not like. Some of the answers are pretty funny.

    What about doing a paper link chain with 100 links. You can see how long it is, hang it in the room.

    Ok hanvan thought of this based on something I posted.... Have kids make list or book about 100 yrs ago.

    Wouldn't be fun to see what the kids thought they did a hundred years ago... For Fun, how they travelled, wore, what jobs they had, kid's chores, what mom's and dad's did for jobs, who the president was.

    Have them draw what they think their school looked like a hundred years ago.

    I know one teacher who does what they think it will be like in 100 years.

    Well my 7-8 yr olds loved the balloon popping. We timed ourselves, and started a graph that will be used for several years. I will have my new class this coming year add their time and see if they matched last years class or beat them.

    In our building, the kindergarten classes, first grade classes, and second grade classes do a 100 day project. We ask the students to create something using 100 objects, then we set up a "museum" in the hallway. The entire school takes a walk through the "museum" sometime throughout the day.

    My class also goes outside and does 100 jumping jacks, 100 toe touches, walks 100 steps, and hops 100 times.

    Last year, I gave my students a half of a big pretzel stick and two little doughnuts and had them create the number 100 using the food.
