1-2-3 Come Do Some 100 Day Activities With Me

When I celebrate 100 Days of school, I set up a variety of centers for my students.

100 day crafts, 100 day activities, 100 Day writing prompts, 100 Day bulletin boards, 100 Day bookmarks, 100 Day centers, 100 Day certificates, 100 Day GamesI like to involve a bit of art into at least one of their lessons, so I designed this “Cool To Be 100 Days Smarter” ice cream scoop craft, which involves counting as well as a bit of writing.

I’ve included several poster options for the center of your display.
Take a look at the PREVIEW for lots of samples.

There are 3 types of ice cream scoops, with 7 bases ( cones, cups, bowls) to choose from.

Children can also write numbers 1-10 on the 1st scoop, finishing with numbers 90-100 on the last scoop.

Although scoops look nice plopped in a straight line, suggest making a tilting ice cream cone, or perhaps one with 3 scoops then 2, then the other 5 on top of the double scoop.

Patterns come with & without numbers, so students can write in their own.

For your special snack that day, for continued math fun, why not provide ice cream with 10 different topping options.

100 day game dots and boxes, 100 day center activityToday's featured FREEBIE also has a 100 Day theme. It's an old fashioned game called "Dots & Boxes" that's a perfect partner center to practice a variety of math skills, plus strategy.  

The object of the game is to be the last person to connect the last line that will complete a box.

When you complete a box, you get to write your initial in it. I made the grid with 100 boxes. 

Well that's it for today. It continues to snow here in Michigan, which is lovely, but no sunshine and the wind makes it quite bitter outside.

To say I'm longing for spring and super-sick of the cold, is an understatement for sure. 

However, to be alive and healthy is certainly a blessing. Wishing you a warm and wonderful day.
