One of the first things we do every day in our school is add a popsicle stick to our cup, count them, and write the number on our chart. Today we added stick number 100, and had a party to celebrate! In the picture below, Caleb is counting them. Every ten sticks is bundled with a rubber band.
100 sticks makes quite a pile! We played with them and spelled their names:
What's a party without snacks??? We counted out 10 piles of 10 pretzels, which makes 100, and then shared them!
Of course, we also had to have a treat. Here are 100 jelly beans.
We sorted the jelly beans by color, and then counted each one.
They filled in a chart using the right color crayon (there were 12 red jelly beans, so they colored 12 boxes red). I found the chart online, but have since lost the link...
I threw 100 pennies in the sand box and had them dig for buried treasure!
We finished our party with a 100 lunch! Half a banana and two apple rounds make a 100, and I used cookie cutters to press a 100 in their sandwiches. It was a very fun school day!
