Zero the Hero Number Stomp 
I am Zero the Hero and I’m here to say,
I love to do numbers every 10th day.
When we make sets of ten we’ll stomp the ground.
And when we reach 100, we’ll sit back down!

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 (Stomp!).
Let’s count another ten.
11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 (Stomp!)
Two tens, let’s go some more…
Three tens, you’re catching on.
Four tens, you’re doing fine.
Five tens, you’re half way there.
Six tens, you’re on a roll.
Seven tens, what a cool game.
Eight tens, you’re doing great.
Nine tens, we’re near the end.
Ten tens is 100, now it’s time to sit down!

Children can make their own Zero the Hero with a sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil. (They’ll need some assistance so work with a small group at a time.) Make two tears from the top about 1/3 of the way down. Make one tear from the bottom as shown. Squeeze the top side sections to create arms. The center section can be molded into a head. The bottom strips can be molded into legs. Make a cape for your hero from paper or fabric. 

*Let children write or tell stories about what they would do if they were Zero the Hero.

100 Days (Tune: "When Johnny Comes Marching Home")
We’ve been in school 100 days. (Children stand and march.)
Hoorah! Hoorah! (Fist in air as if cheering.)
We’ve worked and played 100 days.  
Hoorah! Hoorah!
Zero is our Hero today.
Now let’s all count to celebrate!
We’ve been in school 100 days,
And it’s been great!

1, 2, 3,…..100! (Hold up fingers as you count.)

100 Exercise
Do ten sets of the following exercises: toe touches, jumping jacks, arm circles, hops (on one foot), waist twists, squats, scissor jumps, hops (on the other foot), jog (in place), windmills. *"Pump Up to 100" and "Macarena Count to 100" are two youtube videos where children can exercise and count!
