Do you celebrate the 100th day of school with your class? Today’s we have a fun 100th Day Read-Aloud to share with you, Miss Mingo, and the 100th Day of School. by Jamie Harper. This is a new book and has quickly become one of my favorites!
Miss Mingo and her class are celebrating the 100th day of school. The class is made up of an assortment of animals that have brought all kinds of fun items to mark the day. Things range from 100 teddy bears to the number of feet a pelican dives, to the number of spots on each side of a giraffe.
Maths becomes a part of the day when it is shown 100 can be reached with a combination of numbers such as two piles of fifty, or ten piles of ten. A highlight of the day is when the students put on their imagination hats to create something from the 100 items each of them is given.
The illustrations in the book are so bright and fun. The 100th day of school has become a day to celebrate and to have a good time, while also sneaking in lots of learning as a part of the celebration. This book captures all the glee of the party, along with the educational fun that goes on along with it.
For our snack today, we’ll be making an edible 100!
THIS ACTIVITY WORKS WELL WITH
ingredients – each student will need
1/3 of a pretzel rod – I cut each pretzel rod into thirds
2 cookies with a hole in the center -we used Girl Scout Somoa cookies (a mom has to help her daughter out by buying a few boxes right lol)
The students can make their own 100 using the food they’ve been given. The pretzel rod will be the 1 and the 2 cookies will be the zeros. You could also use mini donuts for the zeros. Another option if you want to make it healthier you could use a baby carrot as the one and 2 sliced cucumbers as the zeros.
While your students are enjoying their 100th-day snack, I made a free printable for them to work on. They will get to draw in 10 items in each of the boxes to create 100. Similar to the 100th Day read-aloud, when they made 10 piles of shells to create 100.
You can download the free printable from my TeachersPayTeachers store by clicking the green box below.
