Hi! I’m a G/T Bilingual teacher (EC-6th), passionate about bilingual/dual language education and language learning. 

The hundred day of school is such an important milestone in our kinder classroom and it is fast approaching.  Some schools celebrate by doing a parade, other teachers assign a project where students have to bring a 100 things from home (stickers, beans, marshmallows etc) to show what a 100 looks like.

 In our classroom we do both, and we also divide our students in 10 groups where they go to 10 station rotations for 10 minutes each. It is such a busy but fun day, parent volunteers come and lead the centers. 

We also read books leading up and after the 100th day of school where we compare and contrast how we celebrate this day with the characters in the book. Here are 3 books in Spanish and 3 in English plus a list of bilingual activities.  

3 SPANISH PICTURE BOOKS ABOUT THE 100TH DAY OF SCHOOL

3. De 1 a 100 by Marilyn Deen
Readers learn many ways to consider the idea of 100 as they practice skip-counting, estimating, and measuring their way from 1 to 100.

3 ENGLISH PICTURE BOOKS ABOUT THE 100TH DAY OF SCHOOL

1. The Night Before the 100th Day of School by Natasha Wing
The 100th day of school is almost here and one student is desperate to find 100 of anything to bring to class. Then all of sudden inspiration strikes, and he comes up with a surprise that makes the 100th day celebration one to remember! This hilarious story of a popular school tradition offers a perfect modern twist on Clement C. Moore’s classic poem.

3.100th Day Worries by Margery Cuyler
When Jessica’s teacher tells everyone in class to find 100 things to bring to school for their 100th day, Jessica starts to worry (sounds very familiar). She wants to bring something really good. but what? 100 marshmallows? No, too sticky.100 yo-yos? Nah, that’s silly. When Jessica reaches the 99th day, she really starts to worry. This book reminds me of Wemberly Worried by Kevin Henkes (English version and Spanish version) She still doesn’t know what to bring! Could the best collection of 100 things be right under her eyes?

From learning stations to poems and comprehension passages, here are some of our highlights for the 100th day of school!
