100th day Party!!!

April 10th is the 100th day of the year, which mostly is an excuse to have a party around here.  Can you believe we are already 100 days into this year?  Don't worry, if you missed doing a party today you can pick another number. Tomorrow will be the 101st day of the year. There are a lot of fun activities you can do around a fun number. 

For today I decided we would do 100 MINUTES of 100s. I didn't know how far we would get down my list of ideas. We didn't make it all the way so that way there are some things to do for next year. The ones with pictures are the ones we actually had time for in our 100 minutes. The rest are just in case they are useful to you. We didn't get to them...yet :)

Of course, we began at 1:00

Here are some ideas for your own NUMBER PARTY:
*Take 100 steps (counting as you go)
*Write up to 100 LINK
* Put 100 frogs on 10 lily pads

*sort 100 jelly beans
*Do the 50 states puzzle and name the 50 state capitals

*make the numbers all the way to 100 from Rummikub pieces (this is my favorite game so we have 2 sets-but we ran out of numbers towards the end. It turned out ok though. We used lifesavers for 0's and worked on it until our 100 minutes were up. You could also use UNO cards.)

*write 100

*Pile up 100 pennies and measure them.
*Write 100 words you can read/spell

*There are some fun songs to sing like these:

Happy 100 Day
(to the tune of "Happy Birthday to You")
Happy 100 days to us,
Happy 100 days to us,
Happy 100 days at ________ School,
Happy 100 days to us.

100 Days
(to the tune of "10 Little Indians")
10, 20, 30 days of school,
40, 50, 60 days of school,
70, 80, 90 days of school,
100 days of school!

Realizing that we are 100 days into the year makes me want to go check out my new year resolutions...time is zooming by!  Have fun counting This Little Project!
