The 100th day of school is a fun celebration that many preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten classrooms participate in during the school year. The excitement about being in school for 100 days is so much fun to anticipate and practice counting to each day. I have put together a blog post about all my favorite 100th day activities for little learners.

Favorite 100th Day Activities

100 Things Collection! The classic 100th day of school activities include having students bring 100 items from home. I usually send the note out the week before, and it gives ideas for items that are perfect for little learners to practice counting.

Counting to 100! I always start the day with having my students count out building materials in groups of ten for our STEM challenge that we will complete later in the day. This way, students are engaged in counting right from the start of the day, and they are helping get materials ready for another classroom activity. I have students count out building blocks, pattern blocks, cups, brainflakes, and any other building materials you want them to use.

Counting to 100 Books! These four books are my favorite counting to 100 books: The Night Before the 100th Day of School, One Watermelon Seed, Let’s Count to 100!, 100 Dogs. Check out my book list for even more 100th day of school book ideas.

100 things necklaces plus more 100th day activities for preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten students to count, explore, and practice numbers to 100.

100 Necklaces! Make a 100th day necklace by lacing 100 things on a piece of year. I have students count out the materials and place them on the ten frames before they thread. Cereal is a great manipulative for this activity because it is way cheaper than beads! I suggest fruit loops or something with a larger hole for little hands to lace. 

100 treats plus more 100th day activities for preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten students to count, explore, and practice numbers to 100.

100 Treats! Motivating young children with food is an easy way to encourage them to work on their counting skills and one-to-one correspondence. These ten frame counting sheets are perfect to keep students on track with the small groups of objects and help them get all the way to 100.

100th Day Activities on the HUndreds CHart

100 number cards plus more 100th day activities for preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten students to count, explore, and practice numbers to 100.

100 Number Cards! Have older students put the number cards in order from 1 to 100. This is a wonderful skill to practice and can be done individually, as teams, or as a whole group. I printed each set of ten in a different color so students could do a little self-correcting as they worked on this math skill.

Number hunt plus more 100th day activities for preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten students to count, explore, and practice numbers to 100.

Number Hunt! Have students play a number hunt game to practice number identification from 1-100. I placed all the number cards in a pile, and students picked one and put an X on it on their paper. You could also have students pick a number off the hundreds chart instead of a pile.

One more, one less game plus more 100th day activities for preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten students to count, explore, and practice numbers to 100.

One More, One Less! This number game is a great way to practice more than, less than skills, as well as number recognition, counting on, addition, and subtraction skills. Students pick a number card and place it in the middle of their board. Then, they write the number that is one less and one more on the board. Erase and go again.

Base 10 build plus more 100th day activities for preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten students to count, explore, and practice numbers to 100.

Base 10 Build! Give students a different math tool with base ten blocks. They pick a number card and then build the number with ten rods and ones pieces. This would definitely be too hard for 3 and 4-year-olds, but 5 plus would benefit from this math game.

Caterpillar number order plus more 100th day activities for preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten students to count, explore, and practice numbers to 100.
