Congratulations on your purchase of this Really Good Stuff® Counting 100 Dancing Hamsters Poster and Stickers Kit—a fun and interactive way to count to 100th Day while reinforcing number concepts. Meeting Common Core State Standards This Really Good Stuff® Counting 100 Dancing Hamsters Poster and Stickers Kit is aligned with the following Common Core State Standards for Mathematics: Counting and Cardinality Know number names and the count sequence. K.1 Count to 100 by ones and by tens. K.2 Count forward beginning from a given number within the known sequence (instead of having to begin at 1). Number and Operations in Base Ten Understand place value. 1.2 Understand that the two digits of a two-digit number represent amounts of tens and ones. Understand the following as special cases: 1.2.a. 10 can be thought of as a bundle of ten ones—called a “ten.” 1.2.b. The numbers from 11 to 19 are composed of a ten and one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine ones. 1.2.c. The numbers 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, and 90 refer to one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, or nine tens (and 0 ones). Use place value understanding and properties of operations to add and subtract. 1.5 Given a two-digit number, mentally find 10 more or 10 less than the number, without having to count; explain the reasoning used. 1.6 Subtract multiples of 10 in the range 10–90 from multiples of 10 in the range 10–90 (positive or zero differences), using concrete models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method and explain the reasoning used. Displaying the Counting 100 Dancing Hamsters Poster and Stickers Kit Before displaying the Counting 100 Dancing Hamsters Poster and Stickers Kit, make copies of this Really Good Stuff® Activity Guide and file the pages for future use. Or, download another copy of it from our Web site at www.reallygoodstuff.com. Hang the Poster where students will be able to see and interact with it easily. Store the unused Hamster Stickers in a zippered plastic bag until needed. Use the blank Hamster Stickers as replacements or as special awards on 100th Day. Counting 100 Dancing Hamsters Mini Poster Copy and distribute the Counting 100 Dancing Hamsters Mini Poster Reproducible. As the student of the day adds the Hamster Sticker to the Poster, have the other students write the number of the day on the hamster’s belly and color it. Have students keep their reproducible in their math folder for easy access each day. On 100th Day, have students color the rest of the reproducible and take it home to share with their families. Ten Hamsters Celebration Dance Each time that your class reaches a multiple of 10 in counting to 100th Day, celebrate by having the students stand up and dance as they sing the following song to the tune of “Mary Had a Little Lamb”: We reached a group of ten today. Ten today, ten today. We reached a group of ten today, And counted one by one. Hamster Math Facts Copy and distribute the Hamster Math Facts Reproducible each Monday morning before your counting to 100th Day lesson. After a student places the Hamster Sticker on the Poster, use that number during the week for the activities on the reproducible. For weekdays that students are not in school for some reason, have them use a crayon or marker to place an X over the day. Have the students store their reproducibles in their math folder for easy access. Once you reach 100th Day, staple each student’s reproducibles together to create a take-home record of his or her daily math work while counting to 100th Day. Note: You can use the reproducibles after 100th Day to offer students practice at extending the counting sequence. 100th Day Celebrations After the student places the 100th Hamster Sticker on 100th Day, hold a celebration that includes one or more of the following activities: • 100 Seconds Challenges: Challenge students to complete activities in 100 seconds, and share with them that 100 seconds is 1 minute and 40 seconds. Ask a volunteer to be the timekeeper by watching a clock or stopwatch to call the time. Some suggested activities might be: • How many jumping jacks can you do? • How many times can you hop on one foot? • How many times can you clap your hands? • How many steps can you take? • Number Games with 100: Plan some competitive games for students that use the lessons taught with the Counting 100 Dancing Hamsters Poster and Stickers Kit. Divide your class into teams or have students play individually and vie for the correct answers to games featuring: • Writing the numbers for counting to 100 by tens. • Writing the numbers for counting to 100 by fives. • Identifying 1 more or 1 less than a number. • Identifying 10 more or 10 less than a number. • Writing the number words for a given number from 1 to 100. Introducing the Counting 100 Dancing Hamsters Poster and Stickers Kit On the first day of school, point to the Counting 100 Dancing Hamsters! Poster, and explain to students that they are going to be counting up to 100th Day of school with some cute dancing hamsters. Further explain that each day you will assign a student to choose a correctly numbered Hamster Sticker and to place it on the Poster in the appropriate cube. To demonstrate, choose a student to place the Hamster Sticker with the numeral 1 in the first cube at the top left corner of the Poster. Lead a discussion about how it is day number 1 and the first day of school. Reward the winning teams or individual students with copies of the Hamster Award Reproducible. Each day, ask a student to choose and attach that day’s Hamster Sticker and to tell the class the number and ordinal number of the day. Have the student point to the Hamster Stickers in order and lead the class as they count up to that day’s number. You may even encourage Hamster Dance 100th Day Certificate Make copies of the Hamster Dance 100th Day Certificate Reproducible, and fill in each student’s name. Distribute the certificates, and urge students to color them and take them home to share with their families. All activity guides can be found online.
