100th Day of School Collection
In many preschool and kindergarten classrooms, children are asked to bring in a 100th Day of School Collection to celebrate the big day. Some children bring in 100 pennies. Others bring in 100 rubber bands or 100 pieces of candy.
But as one who grew up in the late eights/early nineties and boasted an epic sticker collection, I thought stickers would make the perfect 100th Day of School Collection.
FREE 100th Day Sticker Sheet
I created a FREE template to use for your 100th day of school sticker collection. It includes a large numeral 100 along with exactly 100 circles to place stickers inside!
The circles are approximately 0.4 inches in diameter, and I’ve found the ideal stickers to use. Rainbow is obviously my favorite color! And these stickers feature rainbow stars that are sized to fit perfectly on the template. You can purchase your stickers here.
You’ll be able to sign up for the FREE template below. But first, I’d love to share some of the benefits of using this page during your 100th Day celebration.
What Kids will Learn From this Activity
Little learners have a hard time visualizing how many 100 actually is. This sticker activity is a great visual for them. First, give them a sheet of exactly 100 stickers. Explain that this is 100.
Practice counting to 100 as children touch one sticker at a time. If your little ones know how to count by tens and your sheets has exactly ten stickers in each row (like the stickers I used), you can help them count by tens as they touch one row at a time.
This activity also provides valuable fine motor practice. Sticker activities are the perfect fine motor activity for little fingers. These stickers are pretty small, so they provide a great way to practice a pincer grip and finger dexterity.
Finally, children will enjoy experimenting with color in this activity. Some little ones will likely group like colors for their 100th day sticker sheet. Others may make a rainbow pattern. Have your little ones name each color as they place their sticker on the page.
You could also ask them to count how many of each color they used. This activity will engage even fidgety little learners and will add so much fun (and learning) to your 100th Day of school celebration!
Best of all? If you’re a parent you’ve now got an easy peasy 100th Day of School Collection that you can actually complete the night before if you’ve run out of time!
Or, if you’re a teacher you can add this free printable to your classroom hundredth day celebration.
