Bulletin Board Ideas for the 100th Day of School

Don’t wait until the last minute to start thinking about bulletin board ideas for the 100th Day of School. Use the quick and easy ideas below to spark your imagination and make bulletin board decorating a breeze. If you have a favorite 100th Day display that you’d love to share, upload a picture on our Facebook page or describe it in a comment below. We’d love to hear what you’ll be doing.

100th Day Bulletin Boards

Jellybean Math

This bulletin board brings out the sweet tooth in everyone. Have a parent helper cut out 100 large jellybeans in different colors. A good size is one-half of a sheet of construction paper per jellybean. Cover the back of the bulletin board with recycled paper bags from the grocery store. Separate students into 5 groups and have each group come up with 20 math problems that equal 100. They can use addition, subtraction, multiplication or division. After their problems are completed, share them with the class and have the students hang their math jellybeans on the paper bag bulletin board.
 

How Does Your Garden Grow

There is nothing like some spring cheer to make the long winter months feel just a bit better. Cover the top half of your bulletin board in blue paper and the bottom half in green paper that has been fringed to look like grass. Have students create 100 different objects to place on the bulletin board to create a sunny, spring scene. They will need to brainstorm, collaborate and delegate tasks. Depending on the grade level, you may want to break them into groups and assign each group a specific task (i.e. – create flowers, make a tree, etc.). At the end of the task, your bulletin board will be 100 items fuller and spring will definitely be in the air.

 

Simple Celebration

Often, as teachers, we overlook the importance of a bulletin board that does nothing more than celebrate our students. The 100th Day of School is a great, mid-year celebration that gives us that opportunity. The week before the 100th Day of School, take digital pictures of all of your students and print them out. Cover the bulletin board in colorful wrapping paper and label it “Look Who Reached 100!” Mount the students’ pictures to pieces of construction paper and label each with the child’s name. Hang them on the bulletin board and make a fuss over how proud you are of each child. For some students, you may be their only source of encouragement and praise.

    I have each person that enters the room or exits sign their name to a blank list by the door. The person who ends up being #100 wins a special surprise…a 100 Grand Chocolate Bar!

    Love the idea of “Look who reached 100” We anxiously await the 100th day in First Grade. Our “100” zoo is a great assistant!

    We make a one-hundred-day quilt with 100 squares. Each square is sent home complete with their number and instructions and then their number is decorated by their family. They can put that number of items on it, decorate the number itself…the sky is the limit. Then, we put them all together to make a wall-size quilt for display.

    My students bring in a collection of 100 items that they have collected and we put it up on our bulletin board for everyone to see. One year, I had a student bring 100 crickets (yes, they were alive!)…

    In 3rd grade, 100th day activities are a bit juvenile. However, we still complete a 100th day packet, which has different ways using money to make $100.00, etc. Our bulletin board display gets started about 3 weeks before the 100th day – and we have heart cut outs with 100 acts of kindenss. Kids are very eager to nominate one of their classmates. It is festive and really powerful in that others have to recognize a random act of kindess!
