Hi Amelia,

I'm glad you wrote to T2T with this question. There are so many things you 
can do to spice up the 100th Day of school! When I was teaching first and 
second grade (a multiage class) we had a blast. 

One activity that I liked involved snack. I asked each child to send in 100 
pieces of a single type of snack. I gave a list of ideas (cheerios, pretzels, 
raisins, popcorn, crackers, M&M's), but was always surprised by the variety 
of snacks that kids came up with. I always brought in some extra snack in 
case some students didn't bring anything. I placed the snacks in bowls and 
the students took turns coming up and putting 10 pieces of 10 different kinds 
of snack in a bag to save for snack time. 

At snack time I would read a 100 Day story and they could eat their 100 
pieces of snack. It took a little longer to eat than a usual snack because 
they often ate them one piece at a time!

Have fun!

 -Kristina, for the T2T service
