These were not my idea, although I would LOVE to be able to take credit for it! But I can't - Sherri (myfairladies) is the Sooper Jeenyus who came up with these!
We are planning on doing a weekly "counting to 100" activity - remember to practice counting by 1's, 2's, 5's and 10's
Here are some of the things that we will be doing each week - I hope that you can use some of these idea's or find them helpful
1. Eat 100 chocolate chips
2. String 100 fruit loops into a necklace
3. Make blue Jell-O in a clear bowl. Before it completely sets, insert 100 gummy fish – counting as you put them into the bowl, creating an aquarium
4. Get three jars and fill them with candy. Have the girls guess which jar has the 100 pieces of candy in it. They can have all week to cast their “vote” for the jar. On the last day, count the candy in the jars and see who was right!
5. Stick 100 stickers onto paper in either groups of 1, 2, 5 or 10
6. Set a goal of reading 100 books – set up a display on the wall and see how long it takes to read 100 books between Abigail and Taelor by posting the books they have read on the wall using cut outs
7. Have the girls draw a picture of what they will look like when they are 100 years old
8. Complete a 100 piece puzzle – use the timer to see how long it takes. Have races.
9. User butcher paper, roll it out on the floor and put 100 hand prints on it using paint
10. Make a picture of what they think the world will be like in 100 years
11. Make a book entitled “I wish I had a Hundred” and then illustrating them
12. 100 things we are thankful for (this is good for thanksgiving) and write on cutouts and put on the wall
13. Ask friends and family to mail the girls postcards – try to receive 100 post cards by the 100th day of school and mount them on the wall as they arrive
14. Hide 100 Easter eggs, or other item around the house on the main floor and have the girls find them – keeping track of how many they have found until they find them all
15. Give each child a copy of a bubble gum machine graphic. Every day stick a round “gum ball” sticker into the machine with the appropriate number written on it. When we reach 100, have some gumballs for a snack!
16. Make a milkshake by shaking softened ice cream, milk and flavoring in a tightly closed container. Shake it 100 times and drink it with a straw
17. Graph 100 M&M’s or Smarties according to colour
18. Starting on the sidewalk, mark a starting point with sidewalk chalk. Count 100 steps as BIG as you can step. Mark your spot. Now step 100 heel-to-toe steps and mark that spot. Observe the difference
19. Count out 100 balloons and graph according to colour. Set aside for the 100 balloon stomp.
20. 100 balloon stomp! Blow up 100 balloons. Play fun music and dance to it. When the music stops, stomp on a balloon! Keep going until they are all gone.
21. Use a paint brush make 100 dots of calamine lotion on their bodies. Have a bubble bath to wash them off or if the weather is nice, do it outside in your bathing suit and then wash them off in the sprinkler
22. Get a 100’s graph, dice and a crayon. Roll the dice and colour in the number of squares as indicated on the dice. Keep rolling the dice until all the squares are coloured in.
23. Put dots (marked 1-100) on the bottom of 100 Hershey kisses or other candy. Choose a candy and put it in the appropriate place on the 100’s chart and save for a treat
24. Count out 100 popcorn kernels. Put out three different sized containers and try to guess which one those 100 kernels will fill once they are popped. Pop the popcorn in a hot air popper and see who was right!
25. Use a bingo dabber to put circles in a 100’s chart while counting to 100
26. Count out 100 cubes of ice and put them into a large bowl. Estimate how long it will take for them to melt.
27. Using toothpicks and marshmallows, count out 100 marshmallows and design a sculpture and leave it on display for the week
28. Count out 100 pieces of cereal and eat it with milk for snack
29. Get 10 different types of treats. Count 10 of each type totaling 100 and eat the snack while watching 101 Dalmatians
