100 Count Collections

We will celebrate the 100th day of school on Friday, February 8.  For our special day, we'd like each child to collect 100 of a certain item to share with the class.  
 
This year we are trying something new for the first grade collections.  We'd like the items to fit inside an empty plastic water bottle.  The bottles in the picture below show the collections our students put together during their math center today.  The children counted paper clips, coins, noodles and seeds.  
 
The children received a brown paper bag and yellow clue to take home today.  Please have your child place the plastic bottle and clue card in the brown paper bag when (s)he returns it to school on Day 100, February 8th.  The children will read their clues and reveal their 100 items after the class has a chance to predict the item.

  Thank you for your help with this math project!
 
Happy Counting! 
 
 
Our first grade team was inspired by http://froggyfriendsfun.blogspot.com/2012_01_01_archive.html 
to try the "collection in a bottle" idea.
