Join the counting fun!
It takes just a poem a day to count down to the 100th day of school!
Keep count with numbers.
Keep count with stars.
Keep count with beans
in a big glass jar.
Keep a long tally
and keep count with pins.
Keep track of how many
days there've been.
Keep count by ones.
Keep count by tens.
Keep count each day
and wait, wait, wait.
