The day started with Pre-K through first grade coming to school dressed as if they were 100 years old! They had so much fun dressing up! Pre-K started the morning reading “100 Hungry Ants” and counting their own 100 plastic ants by 10’s. In centers they built structures using 100 solo cups, 100 craft sticks, 100 unifix cubes and 100 pattern blocks.
In Kindergarten and first grade, our students danced and counted to the “100 Song”. Kindergarten also had Centers all related to counting to 100! First grade used a Hundred Chart to count and practiced skip counting by 10 all the way to 100.
Second grade also had a blast counting crackers, M&Ms, teddy grahams, and goldfish in groups of 10 to make 100. The best part was eating them!
In 3rd-5th grade we saw students working together and using various activities with 100 things: this included building with 100 pieces of material and imagining what we will look like at age 100. The projects created were amazing!
And last, but not least …. Mr. Wythe’s middle school social studies classes learned about what life was like 100 years ago for the 100th day of school. Students learned how from planes, trains, and automobiles to social issues like voting rights and segregation, America has grown since 1919. Students prepared a presentation on what they think America will look like 100 years from now in 2119, and what they will do to make that future a reality. What a day full of learning and celebrating 100 days of studies!
