The 100th day of school is an exciting time for you and your students. I always love to use read alouds to teach about important topics and also celebrate fun days! I’ve compiled a list for you of 10 100th day of school books to use to celebrate the big day!
100 School Days
100 School Days is a fun book where students put a penny in the jar every day until they reach day 100. The book focuses on students counting each day and that each penny represents one day more.
100th Day Worries
I love 100th Day Worries because it ties together two important lessons- the 100th day and the anxiety and worry that students can feel with assignments and big days. In this story, the main character (Jessica) worries about everything. When she receives the assignment to bring in 100 of one item for the 100th day, she worries about what to bring! This is very relatable to many students who worry, so this is a great read aloud for the 100th day!
100 Snowmen isn’t particularly a 100th day of school book, but it’s a great book to read for the day! This is particularly great for the lower elementary grades because it counts along to 100, but also has addition facts! I love the incorporation of the addition facts throughout the book.
Emily’s 100 Days Of School
In Emily’s 100 Days Of School, you read about Emily’s first day of school and how it leads to her 100th day of school. This is a fun one to add to your collection of 100th day of school books.
Miss Bindergarten Celebrates the 100th Day of Kindergarten
I always read this book in first grade too, even though it says kindergarten in the title. I just love 100th day books, so why not?! In this book, students must bring in “100 of some wonderful, one hundred-full thing!” Miss Bindergarten makes sure that the students in her class have a memorable 100th day of school.
Rocket’s 100th Day Of School
I am a big fan of How Rocket Learned To Read and Rocket Writes A Story for launching reader’s workshop and writer’s workshop, so of course I’m a fan of Rocket’s 100th Day Of School as well! In this book, Rocket collects 100 things to take to school.
The 100th Day Of School From The Black Lagoon
If your students love the Black Lagoon series, then they will love The 100th Day of School from the Black Lagoon. This is another great addition to the 100th day of school!
The Night Before The 100th Day of School
I love all of “The Night Before…” books and The Night Before The 100th Day of School is no different! This book shows the night before the 100th day of school and the boy struggling to come up with 100 of something to bring in.
Hedgehog’s 100th Day Of School
This book, Hedgehog’s 100th Day of School is another fun read! It’s about Spike and his friends celebrating the 100th day of school.
Centipede’s 100 Shoes
I love this book, Centipede’s 100 Shoes. The little centipede goes into a store asking for 100 shoes- 50 left and 50 right. This is a fun book with lots of number practice that all students will enjoy!
