The 100th Day!!

One of the teachers in my building made this 100 sign years ago. The kids love walking through the zero. 
It sets the mood for the day!
The hats!! I got the idea from Pinterest to make the 100 days smarter.
You can download the hat sign below. 
We put up 100 flags out front of the school.
We make the principal be 100 man! He was a good sport, this is his first year at our school. The gym is full of  all the younger grades. He was running in the crowd yelling out facts about 100.

100 Smiles you see

The kid loved this station. 
You can see the recording sheet for where the ball lands.

There is a link to the signs at the end of this post.
A mom made 100 candy Sushi in honor of YOKO!

When the kids found their 100 sign that put this sticker on it.

We opened this board up to the whole school. You can constantly see older kids adding to it each day. 

 Below are some of the stations in all of the classrooms. The K/1 team use the same signs each year and work together to share supplies for each classroom. 

We have lots of parents come in and take the kids around to the stations of their choice. We start at 9 am. Go to the gym at 10:10 for the special presentation come back for a snack. 

After snack, we go back to stations until 11:30.

It is an excellent day for all! 


  1. Love these centers... do you have them as a printable? I am still celebrating with more activities...karen.strawser@sbcglobal.net

  2. Looks like a ton of fun!


  3. Would you please consider making printables with directions for each activity. These are awesome and I would love to revamp some of my activities. Thank you

  4. I love your 100th day activities! Is there anywhere that you have the recording sheets posted or would you be able to email them to me?

  6. Hi Melissa!

    I apologize that this comment is so late! I meant to follow up months ago and it must have slipped through the cracks.

    We wanted to let you know that we featured your awesome 100th Day hallway decor at our blog, Bulletin Board Ideas, as part of our "Appealing Entries for 100th Day" round-up.

    You can find the full feature here:

    As with all of our features, we were sure to give idea/photo credit, as well as a link back to your lovely blog, but we'd love for you to take a look at it. If there are any problems, we'll be certain to take the feature down immediately.

    Hope you're having a great school year!

  7. HI Melissa,

    I was wondering if you could tell me what material was used to make the large 100th day banner that the kids get to walk through?

  8. Hi. I'm loving your stations and am wanting to add the toss game to my own rotations this year (Play Target 100). Do you have directions as to how to make the target? Also, I like your center signs (the frame of "100"s with the title in the middle). Very good ideas. Just wondering if you have any resources available either in a TpT store or as a freebie. Thanks!

  9. Back again ... I'd really like to use the Play Target 100 at our next Family Night. My husband and I are trying to put together a similar target. But I'm just curious and would love a little more info: What size is your target? What did you find worked best for you? 1 student at a time or a small group? Do kids keep tallys of what they've thrown? Or add as they go? (I can't really see your recording sheet.) This looks like a great way to combine gross motor with math. Just wanting to learn from your experiences. Thanks!

  10. Hi Mrs. Yazzie, Sorry about that. I did not make the target but I can tell you that it was the size of a poster (not too big) like 22 by 27. She made it with felt and took little balls and put velcro on them to stick. The kids went to the stations in small groups but took turns one at a time. My friend who made it made a little sheet that went with it to record. She put the shapes if you look at it she has shapes with numbers. I think she put the the shape with the number and the kids checked off what the ball landed on. Or she could of put the shape and the kids recorded the number. The kids took so many throws trying to get 100. Tell me when you need it...I could email her tonight to see if she has a sheet to send me. Melissa

  11. Thank you so much for this blog post! The creativity is so impressive! I was able to find the printable signs post. Thank you so much! If you are able to get the target recording sheet with the various shapes from your friend can you also send it to me? I would so appreciate it! I look forward to seeing what else cute things your blog has to offer! vanessadewey@gmail.com

  12. I LOVE your 100th day Ideas. Ours is the day after we get back from Spring break, on the 25th! There are so many good ideas out there it's going to be SO hard to pick the ones my first graders will have the most fun with.
