Cinco de Mayo Hundreds Chart

I had a request from a sweet reader, Brooke, to make a sombrero hundreds chart for Cinco de Mayo and I tried really hard to make one work, but it kept looking like a weird, brightly colored cowboy hat. So, I found a picture of maracas online and thought maybe they would work instead. What do you think? Is it too over the top and cheesy?

How sad is it that I didn't even know that Cinco de Mayo was Spanish for the fifth of May until I was an adult? Clearly I'm sheltered and have had zero foreign language classes in my lifetime! I am pretty sure the only reason I know how to count to 10 in Spanish is because of watching Sesame Street as a child. :)

If you celebrate Cinco de Mayo with your students or kiddos, feel free to click here or on the picture below to get your freebie!

Please be sure to let me know if you find any errors. :)


  1. I've loved all these that you've made but I haven't used them yet. I'm going to use this next week. Thanks for sharing.
