I am so excited about our 100th day coming up.  For years I have used simple black and white circles for sorting mats but after seeing some fancied up versions on Pinterest I decided it was time to update.  These are the sorting mats I will use for both our Froot Loop Necklaces and our Healthy Trail Mix.  The children will put 10 of each item in each circle and when they are done, they will have 100 items.  Years ago I asked the children to just count out  100 items and I found out VERY quickly that was just too difficult.  This makes it so much easier because my students can count 10 items.  Much less intimidating and TONS more fun!

Our 100th day of school is coming up in a couple of weeks.  Like so many of you awesome teachers, I make trail mix with my kindergartners.  I know lots of people have the children fill out something like what I have posted above, however, I have tweaked it to fit the needs of all of us "healthy schools" out there.  At our school we are not allowed to use m&m's, skittles, chocolate chips, nuts (for allergy reasons), etc.  These are the items that have been approved for our school, maybe they will work for yours.  The items pictured are as follows:
Cheese Ball Puffs
Cheerios
Teddy Grahams or Gummy Bears
Fruit snacks
Marshmallows
Pretzels
Goldfish Crackers
Popcorn
Animal Crackers
Oyster Crackers
