Monday, February 25, 2013 marked the 100th day of school. Children were so excited to celebrate the landmark number and their learning in various ways. Boys in 1st and 5th grade dressed up like what they would look like if they were 100 years old.
Students also made and colored 100 paper dolls learning in the library.
Students practiced 100 acts of kindness by each student brainstorming what random act of kindness they would put into play for the day. They then wrote their act of kindness on a paper heart and shared it with the class. All hearts are on display on the main entrance staircase.
But the activity that had children rushing to get into the library was listening to the 100 Days of School read aloud and then counting 100 small food items like popcorn, marshmallows, cereal, sunflower seeds, cookies, chocolate chips, pretzels, nuts into their baggies in sets of 10. Students counted and counted and recounted to ensure they had 100 exactly. But the counting was only half the fun as many children couldn’t wait to eat their homemade trail mix.
