Sometime in January or February, your school will reach its 100th day of the school year—and it’s a fun reason to celebrate together.

We’ve compiled some cute ways to mark the 100th day! Try one—or try a few—your students will love them. Plus, they will be having so much fun, they won’t even realize how much they are learning

1. 100 Ways to Be Kind

Who couldn’t use a little more kindness right now? On the 100th day, create a list together of 100 ways to be kind. Hang this list in a visible place, and cross these out the rest of the year as they are accomplished. Make it even more interactive by writing each accomplished act of kindness on a post-it note and sticking it on a bulletin board in the classroom. At the end of the year, you’ll have a beautiful bulletin board, displaying how kind your classroom is!

2. 100 (whatever your class decides!) Anchor Chart

While their thinking caps are on and ready to keep making lists of 100, it’s time to pull out the anchor chart and markers! As a class, decide on a theme for a 100 days anchor chart—100 reasons they love school, 100 places they want to travel, 100 words they know, 100 things they have learned this year, etc.—or even create your 100 ways to be kind list this way! Design your chart, and let the students fill in the chart by writing or sharing their responses.

Students could even create their own 100th day posters at home and bring it in to show-and-tell their classmates!

3. 100th Day DIY Shirts

Much like the posters, students could create shirts at home to wear to school for the 100th day. Or, if you are feeling adventurous, you could work on them for a few weeks in class! Just have students bring shirts and some items to create their shirt. The opportunities are endless with this project.

4. 100th Day Hats and Necklaces

What would the 100th day be without crowns or necklaces? Both simple crafts are popular with teachers of younger students.

There are a variety of ways hats, crowns or headbands can be made for the 100th day. Have students create their own crown and home in on their math skills by adding 100 dots, stars, hearts, etc. on their crowns, or keep it simple by having them color a premade crown.

5. Awards Show

Roll out the red carpet to celebrate the day! Set up a construction paper red carpet and give each student an award for something they have improved on for the past 100 days. When receiving the award, each student will give an acceptance speech, sharing a goal they have for the remainder of the year.

6. Literacy Activities

Cut out 100 words on paper and challenge kids to create a story as a group. See how many words kids can make with the letters in “one hundred.” Have students write 100 words they know. Or, as a class, come up with 100 positive adjectives that describe their school.
