This is a FUN and collaborative poster to make with your students as part of your 100's Day Celebrations, or any time of year!

Here's how it works:

1. Each students chooses 4 or 5 cats to color and cut out, and then glue on to a white posterboard (until the total equals 100 cats). For best results cut as closely around the cats as possible and use white paper on white poster board.

2. The teacher then secretly adds the mouse somewhere amongst all the cats and students try to find it!

3. Practice counting the 100 cats using various strategies, such as groups of 10. HINT: My students discovered putting a coin on top of each cat they already counted was a great way to prevent getting mixed up! Coming up with this solution themselves was very powerful for problem solving skills and teamwork. : )

I have included two pages of printable cats so there are lots to choose from. Or, you may wish to make your own cats, as my students did in the picture shown.

I have included two title signs (one of which includes two cats, so don't forget them in your final count!).
