100th Day Idea

One of my all time favorite activities for the 100th day of school is the Hershey Kiss Hunt.  Basically I purchase a couple of backs of Hershey Kisses and some circle dot stickers.  I number the stickers one to one hundred and then stick them on the bottom of the Hershey Kisses.  While the children are at special area, I hide them around the room (like Easter Eggs for an Egg Hunt). 

When the children return, I set out the hundred chart.  When each child finds a Hershey Kiss, he/she places it on the hundred chart until all the candies are found.  Once all the candies are located, we divide up the Kisses evenly.

The kids LOVE this activity!


  1. We used to do that, too!! We don't really celebrate the 100th day in first grade anymore but that kiss hunt was always a hit!

    1. It is incredible how much first grade has changed. We used to celebrate the 100th day the whole day, now it's an afternoon event. Thanks for stopping by! :)

  2. That sounds like fun. When I taught third grade, we really didn't do a lot. That sounds like a lot of fun!
    So glad you stopped by my blog! It is always fun to meet other Reading Specialists, especially with such a great name!
