Now, for more about 100th Day...
I'm all about having children feel objects. I really think that when our students are able to interact with things in a tactile way, the concepts really stay in their brain. With that said, I had students place 100 Fruit Loops on a pre-made chart in rows of 10. I laminated four of these and put them on the table in my Math Center. I've also had parents come in on 100th Day, so they keep an eye on the students to see that they don't eat the Fruit Loops until 100 are on the laminated mat. By the way, I designed this file to print out on legal size paper (8.5"x14"), to help fit all 10 rows on the page.

Another thing I did was to send this letter home, asking the parents to help their child create a 100th Day poster.

Here are two pictures of sample 100th Day Posters made by my former students:
