100th Day

On Monday we celebrated our 100th day in school. It's a landmark day that is typically celebrated by elementary teachers and students all around the country (or at least I think).  I personally don't remember celebrating the 100th day when I was in elementary school. It certainly is a fun filled day though, that revolves around all things "100".  Its the perfect opportunity to read books about the 100th day of school.  We sing songs, count to 100 by 1's, 5's and 10's while marching, clapping, and doing jumping jacks, as well as a number of other fun hands on projects. In math we practiced sorting objects by 10's to make our counting easier. We also discussed that 100 of one item is not necessarily the same size as 100 of another. In addition, the "hundreds" place-value was introduced. Three digit numbers are "huge"!

In celebration of our 100th day, our Cold Springs Kindergarteners have a 100 Day Museum. Students bring in a project that represents the number one-hundred. Each year I'm always amazed at the creativity of the kids (and parents) in showing 100. We take some time to walk through the kindergarten classes to catch a glance of the wonderful projects.  Here are some photos, from legos to zip-ties, that I was able take along the way. Enjoy - and congratulations to the KF Dragons for making it to this very special day!
