Arrange in a curvy “snake” shape and number each segment with digits or words or both.
Cut out 100 large red, pink and purple paper hearts.
Punch a hole in the center top of each and attach a
piece of heavy thread or fishing line to each.
Have your students write a number sentence such as
“Franny has 1 (one) sister.” or “Danny stacked 30 (thirty) blocks.
on several hearts each. Hang from the ceiling or create a mobile.
100 Block Tower
Use exactly 100 blocks to build one or more towers.
Miss Bindergarten builds 3 towers: the numbers 1, 0 & 0
to build the number 100!
Some ideas for posters:
“I Could Eat 100…”
“What I Will Look Like At 100 Years Old…”
Use a stamp pad the make designs of 100 thumb or nose prints.
Miss Bindergarten pins 100 ribbon-bows on her jumper,
but you can wear them on an apron, vest or skirt.
Or use 100 buttons, stickers, googly-eyes, pom-poms,
or numbered checks.
A Little and A LOT
Compare 100 uncooked popcorn kernels with 100 popped ones,
or 100 flat balloons with 100 inflated ones,
or 100 tiny alfalfa seeds with 100 sprouted ones.
Use store bought beads or make your own from salt dough, plastic clay, dyed pasta, cereal Os or Life Saver candies.
Think of many different patterns and ways to string 100 beads. Try groups of 5, 10, 20 or 25. String in repeating sequences by color, shape or size. String in a Rainbow Pattern (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet) to match Miss Bindergarten’s rug border.
Have your students trace 100 outlines of their hands onto red paper. Cut them out and arrange in an overlapping heart-shaped wreath.
Candy Kisses Classroom Hunt
(Thanks to Bev Sirois, Windsor, CA)
Write the numbers 1 to 100 on dot stickers. Stick to the bottoms of 100 candy kisses. Hide the kisses all over the classroom. Make a number grid of 100 squares and, as the students find each kiss, place on the proper square on the chart. This is a fun matching game.
