Let’s Celebrate the 100th Day of School!

To celebrate the day, and get some great counting experience, the first grade students had a homework project to make something that 100 things on it. No two projects are ever alike. We hope you will watch our movie of a selection of the projects made.




 We also like to support 100th day in the library by reading favorite 100th day books.

chickenMy personal favorite is The Wolf’s Chicken Stew by Keiko Kasza. Wolf is hungry and wants to eat some chicken stew. However, first he wants to fatten up the chicken by bringing 100 pancakes, donuts and a 100 pound cake secretly to their door. Find out what happens when he finally meets the chicken family!

bindergartenIn the book Miss Bindergarten Celebrates the 100th Day of Kindergarten by Joseph Slate, all the kindergarten must bring “100 of some wonderful, one-hundred-full thing!” Similar to what our students do at school, the kindergarteners bring a selection of 100 things from 100 toy cars, to 100 play dinosaurs and 100 ants!




readerThe Scholastic Reader, The 100th Day of School by Angela Shelf Medearis is a leveled book appropriate for young readers to read independently.





Jessica is a worrier and worries about everything, including what she is going to bring for her 100th day school project. All the other kids know wexactly what they are going to bring, but not Jessica. Find out what she finally figures out in the book, 100th Day Worries by Margery Cuyler.worries

  1. Dear First Graders,
    We love how creative your projects are this year. We liked the Washington Monument project and all the others too!
    We remember doing this project in 1st grade too. Some of us made 100 shrink-e-dinks, 100 cheerios, 100 cereal pices, 100 coco puffs, 100 stickers,
    100 marshmallows, 100 toothpicks in a tower and 100 small paper airplanes.
    As you see, that’s why we liked 100 th day too!

  2. Dear First Graders,
    I really enjoyed watching your Animoto of all your 100th day projects. Great job, everyone. We will celebrate the 100th Day of School tomorrow. I teach a grade one also and our projects are due tomorrow. I can’t wait to see what all my students made.

  5. Mrs. Hembree and students,

    Congratulations on making it through the first 100 days of school! We just had our 100th day last week. It’s such an exciting day. I love how you shared some books that students could read on that day.

    Thanks for sharing my blog with students. I’m really excited to tell my students that other classes are watching the videos we made to learn about math!
