The 100th day of school is a special milestone celebrated in many classrooms (often in kindergarten). It’s an opportunity to acknowledge how far students have come since starting school in the fall and to look forward to the year ahead.

Teachers also celebrate the 100th day of school because it’s a chance for kids to expand their counting and math skills! Little ones love impressive numbers like 100, and teachers find many ways to incorporate extra practice with them around the 100th day school. That might include creating class collections of 100 items like rocks and coins, or having students draw pictures of themselves at age 100.  

Here are three ways you can support the activities your child is doing in class for the 100th day of school.
