When is your 100th day of school? This can be tricky for half-day preschool programs! If your students come to school twice a week during the school year, they will NEVER have a 100th day in school! If they come three times a week during the school year, your 100th day will be at the end of the school year!
So, what do YOU do? You could include both classes in ONE count where you count every school day toward the 100 days, which puts our 100th day sometime in January, depending upon days you may be closed for holidays, school breaks and inclement weather.
This 100th Day of School Preschool Theme page includes preschool lesson plans, activities and Interest Learning Center ideas for your Preschool Classroom!
Writing Activity Ideas for Your 100th Day of School Theme!
Make Preschool Money!
Make copies of a money template or make your own!
Have the children cut out rectangles and practice making "100" on the money and printing their names.
Provide small pictures of them from your computer for them to glue onto "their" money!
Materials needed: Black paper, white crayon or chalk, glue, brush, glitter, shallow trays.
Have the child print the number 100 on their paper (write the number lightly for those who need to trace it).
Have them then paint over their number 100 with a paint brush and glue.
Have them place their paper in a shallow tray and cover the glue number with glitter, let dry.
While drying, encourage them to draw a picture of what they would buy if they had 100 dollars! Write what they say on their paper or let them write their story as best they can (be sure to write i down somewhere also so that you have it to refer back to!
Miscellaneous Activities for Your 100th Day of School Theme!
Community 100 Collection
How about collecting 100 of something that a local community resource could use? Perhaps 100 cans of food for the food pantry, 100 packages (all together) of diapers and wipes for the local women's shelter, etc.
At the beginning of this theme (or the week before), send a note home letting families know of your upcoming 100th Day of School Theme.
Ask parents to work with their child to come up with an idea of 100 of something they can bring to school! It could be 100 pieces of junk mail, pennies, popcorn kernels, etc.
This is an opportunity for families to help their child with rote counting to 100! They may not realize how much 100 is, but this will help!
Display their items at a table or your Discovery/Science table with a sign that says "How much is 100?"
