Celebrate 100 hundred days of school by having your students make their own crowns to mark the day. They will be counting to 100 by 10’s. All the parts that you need on are this one sheet.
1. Students can color the “jewels” or diamonds (really rhombuses if you want to point that out to the students) as they choose.
2. Cut on the lines at the top to make the base of the crown.
3. Glue the numbers in order, with the 100 in the middle above the forehead.
The crown can be printed on regular paper, cardstock, or construction paper. The band of the crown is 22 inches if printed on regular 8½ X 11 paper or card stock. It will be 24 inches on 9 x 12 construction paper. The average 5 year old has a head only a little smaller than an adult head. That means a range of about 19 – 21 inches will be needed to make the crown. That gives you just enough to make it fit. (I checked many sites on the Internet and that’s the consensus for child head sizes.)
I have enclosed an already colored version if you want to use a color printer and leave out the student coloring part of the project. If you use white construction paper the crown will be more durable and will allow the students to color it as they wish.
Happy 100 days of school!
