Parents100 Days of School!
Full Time Kindergarten to Grade 2 celebrated 100 days of classroom learning on Thursday, February 16. Students were invited to dress up as though they were 100 years old or to wear a shirt decorated with 100 items. Classrooms imagined “when I am 100 years old” with portraits and stories. 100 Day centres included putting together 100 piece puzzles, rolling a die to see how many turns it takes to get to 100, creating necklaces out of 100 fruit loops, writing 100 words that they can read, and practicing their numbers up to 100.
Ms. Doerksen’s class learned how to say and write the number 100 in several languages and did lots of counting to 100 in different ways (backwards, forwards, by 2s, 5s and 10s). Students were also encouraged to bring in a collection of 100 items!
1R practiced counting 100 objects in groups of 10 and used the number 100 to create an art project. Miss Rumbolt’s class also spent time writing about their future 100 year old selves: what they would be doing, where they would be living, and what they would look like. Crowns and colouring projects were also enjoyed.
Mrs. Hedlin’s classroom wrote 100 words from around the classroom, built a structure with 100 toothpicks, glued 100 items into ten frames, and wrote a letter to their 100 year old self!
Students engaged in many learning activities centered around the number 100 throughout the day!
