Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
Counting to 100 is a milestone in the development of children and there is no better way to do it than by to celebrate the hundredth day of school. By the time children reach the hundredth school day they are well into the classroom routine, so a break to celebrate is welcome especially with the activities from this entertaining book. Some fun-filled activities include licking a lollipop 100 times, popping 100 soap bubbles, making a musical shaker with 100 beans, and snapping a photo of objects that look like 100. Crisp, colorful photos show completed activities such as 100 items to use to make trail mix, 100 leaves, 100 marbles, and 100 gelatin jigglers. Other photos show children actually engaged in the activities. Children may conclude that the main purpose of the activities is to have fun; teachers will note that curriculum areas of science, math, art, reading, and motor skills are covered in the process. A timeline in rainbow colors runs across the bottom of each double-page spread. One excellent spread depicts how to say hello in 100 languages. It includes the pronunciation of the words. A back page note lets adults know which activities should be supervised and adds notes for additional work with age-specific activities. Reviewer: Nancy Garhan Attebury
School Library Journal
Gr 3—Bright color photographs that pop from white backgrounds invite youngsters to celebrate the first 100 days of school by doing things: "Recycle 100 cans"; "Walk 100 steps in any direction." "Make a snake with 100 beads"; and even mop. Highlighting the ideas shown on each spread is a number line in 100 hues, which are also backgrounds for saying "hello" in 100 languages. By measuring 100 inches or 100 grams, counting eyes on 50 owls or legs on 25 elephants, and predicting the most frequent number to appear when a die is rolled 100 times, youngsters explore a variety of math concepts. Whether reading 100 books, composing a poem with 100 letters, or writing a short story with 100 words, these ideas add literacy skills to the children's math awareness. Various collections are artfully arranged, as are designs incorporating 100 circles, 100 triangles, and 100 hearts. Finally, children can celebrate by hanging up 100 streamers, blowing up 100 balloons, and blowing out 100 candles. Activities requiring adult supervision are noted on the last page, as are additional ideas. A more clever collection of 100 ideas is hard to imagine. A must-have for schools celebrating this special day.—Mary Jean Smith, Southside Elementary School, Lebanon, TN
Kirkus Reviews
Teachers everywhere will applaud this resource that explores the number 100 in, as the title indicates, 100 different ways, going beyond the typical "bring in 100 items" to allow children to explore many of Howard Gardner's multiple intelligences. Among the standout activities are: Hunt for the numbers from one to 100; read 100 books; write a sentence, poem or story of 100 words; toot a tune of 100 notes and learn how to say "hello" in 100 different languages. Mixed in with these are more traditional activities, including cutting, drawing, jumping, eating, skip counting, estimating and measuring. From the doers to the makers, collectors to recyclers, mathematicians to scientists, there is something here to tempt every type of learner. Colorful and appealing photographs of real objects help readers practice recognizing a group of 100 items and give ideas for displaying collections. A number line at the bottom of every spread tracks progress toward the "100 Ways" of the title. Another solid math title from Goldstone (Greater Estimations, 2008, etc.) that is sure to see a lot of use. (Nonfiction. 4-10)
