Is your 100th day almost here or already come and gone? Either way, this post is for you. I like to celebrate the 100th day of school, but a lot of activities counting to 100 can be too young for 2nd and 3rd graders. So instead of counting to 100, I came up with some 100th day activities based around 100! We did some fun things with reading, writing, and math that included, of course, some serious 100th day swag!
100th Day Activities for Math
As I said before, I wanted to have my students work with some activities based around hundreds so I made these word problem cards for students to use known strategies to subtract from 100. I set these games up as stations and students rotated through all the various activities.
Another math activity my class really enjoyed was finding the value of a pizza. They used a key to add the values of the ingredients then find the total value of the whole pizza!
To add even more novelty, I had my class cut apart the boxes on their recording sheet then staple on this cover to make a booklet.
Before I Am 100
Since we’re working hard this time of year on identifying parts of speech, we made these fun Before I Am 100 flip books.
We also made individual booklets with these easy labels. Students folded a piece of construction paper in half, glued on the label, and wrote 100 words inside each book. These made for a fun thing to keep in their desks and add to as they finished other work throughout the week.
100th Day Self Portraits
What would a 100th Day celebration be without imagining yourself at 100 years old?
There are so many opportunities for building some fun vocabulary with this project! Read all about our 100th day writing and how we made these centenarian self portraits (and grab the FREE class book while you’re there!).
Celebrate with Swag!
Of course I couldn’t let the 100th day go by without handing out some serious swag! I gave my students water bottles, bracelets, brag tags book marks and certificates. Celebratory swag is my favorite!
These are but a few of the fun 100th day activities we did to celebrate the fact that we’re more than halfway there! You can find the math games, ELA booklets, the writing project with self portrait templates, and lots of additional printables in this 100th Day Activities for 2nd & 3rd Grade. Plus it’s loaded with all the BONUS swag too!
