__How Many is One Hundred?__

(to the tune of "Mary Had a Little Lamb")

How many is one hundred,

One hundred, one hundred,

How many is one hundred?

It's ten groups of ten.

How many is one hundred,

One hundred, one hundred?

How many is one hundred?

It's twenty groups of five.

How many is one hundred,

One hundred, one hundred?

How many is one hundred?

It's fifty groups of two.

How many is one hundred,

One hundred, one hundred,

How many is one hundred?

It's one hundred groups of one.

__One Hundred Day Poem
__

We've come to school for 100 days,

The time has just flown by.

Five months, two seasons and we're half way done,

When another surprise does arrive.

It's the 100th day of school today.

Let's start the day with a grin.

For tomorrow will be 101,

So let the celebration begin.

100 days of school in all,

100 days of school,

We managed to count a large amount,

100 days of school in all!

How did we get 100 days?

100 days of school?

We started the fun with number 1,

Counting the days of school in all!

1 day of school at first,

Then 2, then 3, then 4.

We got up to 10, but didn't stop then,

We went to 100 days in all!

20, 30, 40 days,

50 days and more!

60, 70, 80, 90,

Up to 100 days in all!

100 days of school in all,

100 days of school,

We managed to count a large amount,

100 days of school in all!

__100 Animals__

**By: Karen Fenstermaker**

I went to the zoo,

And what did I see ?

100 animals ,

Looking at me .

There were ten tall giraffes, eating from trees,

Ten silly monkeys, scratching their knees.

Ten sleeping snakes, lying in the sun,

Ten munching elephants, eating peanuts, one by one.

Ten leaping tigers, performing in the shows,

Ten pink flamingos, standing on their toes.

Ten grouchy bears, trying to get some sleep.

Ten happy hippos, in the water deep.

Ten roaring lions, walking two by two,

And ten galloping zebras, all living in the zoo.

100 Days__

(tune: "Yankee Doodle Dandy")

I can count up to 100,

It's so easy if you try.

I can't believe that since we started school

100 days have gone by.

Now let's all count up to 100

Come and try it once with me

We'll finish up with 99,

And last we'll say 100

Let's start out with 1, 2, 3.

(count as a group to 100 by 1's)

I can count up to 100,

It's so easy if you try.

But this time instead of using 1's,

I'll try to count it by 5's.

Counting this way is much faster

So it doesn't take as long.

First say 5 and then say 10,

And end up with 100,

Come on and join in my song.

(count as a group by 5's)

I can count up to 100,

Now I'll try it once again.

But this time instead of 1's or 5's,

I'll try to count it by 10's.

Counting this way is the fastest,

It is also lots of fun.

First say 10 and then say 20,

End up with 100,

Our song is almost done!

(count as a group by 10's)

We've all been counting one-by-one,

Hoorah! Hoorah!

We've all been counting, oh what fun!

Hoorah! Hoorah!

We've all been counting one-by-one,

And now 100 days are done,

Hooray! Today's the 100th day of school!

We started counting up to 10,

Hoorah! Hoorah!

To 20, 30, 40 then,

Hoorah! Hoorah!

To 50, 60, 70 then,

To 80, 90, and now is when

Hooray! Today's the 100th day of school!

We started with a number low,

Hoorah! Hoorah!

And one by one, we made it grow,

Hoorah! Hoorah!

We started with a number low,

And now it's grown to 1-0-0,

Hooray! Today's the 100th day of school!

We've all been counting one-by-one,

Hoorah! Hoorah!

We've all been counting, oh what fun!

Hoorah! Hoorah!

We've all been counting one-by-one,

And now 100 days are done,

Hooray! Today's the 100th day of school!

I saw 100 stars last night

Shining in the sky.

I wondered as I watched them,

How did they get so high?

Twinkle bright, twinkle long

Like Mom's good night kisses

They stayed with me the whole night through

As I made 100 wishes.

100 dogs, 100 cats,

100 heads for 100 hats.

100 women, 100 men,

100's more than 5 or 10.

100 buttons, 100 coats,

100 sails for 100 boats.

100 cookies, 100 cakes,

100 kids with bellyaches!

100 shoes, 100 socks,

100 keys for 100 locks.

100 puddles mighty dirty,

100's even more than 30.

100 daughters, 100 sons,

100 franks on 100 buns.

100 trees, 100 plants,

100 picnics, 100 ants!

100 is a lot to count.

100 is a LARGE AMOUNT!

100 kisses, 100 hugs,

100 bats, 100 bugs.

100 bees, 100 birds,

This poem has 100 words!

"100th Day Song"__

(tune: I've been working on the railroad)

We've been working in our classroom,

For 100 days.

We've been working in our classroom,

Here in the _______ grade.

Rising early in the morning,

Bring our books and pencils, too.

Every day we come to ________________________ (school name)

We learn something new.

The child is made of one hundred.

The child has a hundred languages

a hundred hands

a hundred thoughts

a hundred ways of thinking

of playing, of speaking.

A hundred, always a hundred

ways of listening

of marveling

of loving

a hundred joys for singing

and understanding

a hundred worlds to discover

a hundred worlds to invent

a hundred worlds to dream.

The child has a hundred languages

(and a hundred hundred hundred more)

but they steal ninety-nine

the school and the culture

separate the head from the body.

They tell the child to think

without hands

to do without head

to listen and not speak

to understand without joy

to love and marvel

only at Easter and Christmas.

They tell the child

to discover the world already there

and of the hundred

they steal ninety-nine.

They tell the child that

work and play

reality and fantasy

science and imagination

sky and earth

reason and dream

are things

that do not belong together.

And thus they tell the child

that the hundred is not there.

The child says:

No way. The hundred is there!
