100th Day Celebration

      100th Day of School
   Sometime in February we reach the 100th Day of School.  Only 80 days are left.  But it's also a great opportunity for us to review many math skills along with a few others.  We wrote stories, sang songs, did centers, read books, and counted, counted, counted! 
We read books about counting to 100.  Then we practice doing it ourselves.
We counted by 2s, 4s, 5s, 10s, 20s, 25s, and 50s.  We started talking about multiplying!
The winner of Chutes and Ladders is the first to get to 100.  The boys in the background stamp 100 math facts to be completed.
We brought 2 groups of 100 from home.  The one group of items we counted with, then glued to paper and hung in the hall.  The other group of 100 was food.  When we had our party with the other 2nd grades, we counted by 100s as we added the treats together in a big bag.  At the end, we divided up over 6,000 pieces of snacks!
At recess we bounced a ball 100 times, hopped on one foot 100 times, jumped rope 100 times, and tried (with much difficulty) to do 100 jumping jacks.
If your family would like to have fun with 100 too, listed below are some books you might enjoy.
