Are you ready? 
Can you feel the excitement building? 
It's about to happen from coast-to-coast! 

100th Day Celebration SUPER FUN!
Let's make your life easier and pull these incredible visuals into one place.
Look at this TOO-clever manner of counting your days. 
(Yup, go ahead, pin it and start planning now for next year.)

Where are you in your official count?
I was in this OH-Kinder room very near the end of last year!

Take a look at this beauty!
Spotted in FL coastal Kinder-closet.
LUV it! LUV it! LUV it!
Do you have a 100 Day Parade?

One of my favorite things about making my school visits.......
when teachers start digging in their files and closets to share some special favorites they have stashed away. 

How can you look at this 100 Day homework response and not smile ear-to-ear?
This one is from my dear friend up in Door County, WI.

Next up is a poster from an Indiana hallway. 
Kindergarten student-photos in the ribbons. 
Laminate the finished product. 
Keepsake-to-display at graduation!
Children never tire of seeing their smiles with friends.

These next several images are from South Daytona Beach Elementary's kinder extra-vaganza! 
Their hallway was a veritable showplace of excellence for the Hundredth Day observations. 
Math explorations at every turn.
This bulletin board display is a 'team-work' project. 
Friend A traces friend B's fingers. 
How convenient to have 20 friends for a total of 100 fingers!

This is a great bulletin board--
combining the 100th Day Celebration with Valentines Day! 
Lotsa love in this display!

Simple always wins points in my book. 
Striking. Simple. Stars. 
Luv the student written labels for each color.

Of all my favorite ideas for the 100th celebration, this next one absolutely wins my award for home + school interaction. Everyone gets the same sized zip-lock bag. Family sends in 100 items from home. Science I tell you! Science!!! Compare volume. Compare mass. The finished bulletin board was an absolute wizz-bang winner! How can you go wrong with that much purple in kindergarten?

Here are some additional 'family' homework assignments to honor the big number 100! From Ohio and Wisconsin.

Let's conclude these 100 Day Party Festivities with a couple more bulletin board ideas for the culmination of your studies and celebration. I couldn't even capture all 100 gumballs in this photo. The hallway wasn't wide enough to back up sufficiently, but you get the idea!

Get in your time machine and fast forward to a self-portrait of your 100 year old self. Classic. What a great mini-lesson to talk about self-care and making wise choices early in life. Eat your broccoli!

What's a party without a whopping over-sized pizza? A pizza with 100 toppings would certainly delight your students. Again with the student 'labels' on the masterpiece. Every fine motor - writing experience is a good one in kindergarten! Look below the pizza for the 100 segment caterpillar's beginning.

Look across the room for the caterpillar's continued journey.

How do you celebrate this increasingly significant milestone? Does Halmark make 100 Day cards yet? I think there's still room for commercialization of this winter-highlight. 

I hope that my gathering all of these oldies-but-goodies together with my latest photographs gives you some new tangent to explore. Why, yes. I have written and recorded a 100 Day song. It's got an Elvis feel. It's my favorite invite of the year -- to come to your party and teach it. 

Here's the direct link to my 100 Day Pinterest board. There are 189 pins awaiting you over there. This morning I woke up to 88,888 Pinterest followers. Starting the day with a smile is a good thing.
