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.

Each day, ask a student to choose and attach that day’s Hamster
