Celebrating 100 days of school has turned into a big event in classrooms across the world! And… why not? The day provides a great way for primary teachers to celebrate a variety of mathematical concepts using the number 100 and to celebrate a huge achievement with their students. Any excuse to have a class party…
When you celebrate the 100th day of school may vary from school to school depending on when your school year started, how many school holidays you have had, and if you have had any snow days!

100 Days of School Tracker Classroom Poster
Begin keeping track of the number of days your students have been in school in anticipation of the 100th day of school. Use craft sticks to keep track of the days and teach students about bundling the sticks together once they get to ten. This is a fantastic way to introduce the concept of place value to your students.

Dress Up as a 100-Year-Old
This idea has been quite popular for several years now! Have your students dress like they are 100 years old. Some schools even get their teachers and school principal to dress as if they were 100 years old, too!
This is the cutest idea…
She learned a few things on the 100th day of school. First. Some people actually live to be 100 (preschool mind blown). Second. Not everyone feels sexy in a moo moo. (Next year she’s gonna try and look like Nana, with sequence, her hair pinned up and rolled, and some bright red lipstick #accordingtocyndell) Third. It’s much more fun growing old with friends . . . . . . . #orlandophotographer #magicofchildhood #enchantedchildhood #worldchangers #childhoodunplugged #childhoodmemories #dearphotographer #momtogs #pixel_kids #stunningbabies #littleandbrave #100daysofschool #MODY2 #monogeneticdiabetes #cameramama #sincerestoryteller #clickmagazine #cbp_up #the_sugar_jar #enchantedmoments #wildandbravelittles #childrenofinstagram #celebratechildhood #teachthemwhilettheyreyoung

100th Day of School Certificates
Provide your students with a 100 days of school certificate that they can keep as a memento of their 100th day of school. It might even be cute for these to be given out at the whole school assembly. Make your students feel even more special as they go up on stage with their 100 Days of School hats to receive their very own certificate.
100 Days of School Student Badge
As your students walk into the classroom on their 100th day of school, use a safety pin to attach one of these two gorgeously illustrated 100th day of school badges to each of your students’ shirts. Or better yet, simply copy these templates on sticker paper so that no safety pins are needed! Simply stick one to each child’s shirt.
