The 100th Day of School is an important winter trimester milestone marked most prominently in Kindergarten. It is a time to recognize being more than halfway through the school year while celebrating Kindergarten students’ newfound facility with triple-digit numbers. This year, students marked the occasion by traveling through a rotation of activities across the three Kindergarten classrooms. Students created t-shirts with 100 artmaking marks on them, colored 100-themed crowns, made images out of the shape of the number 100, counted out 100 pieces of snack, and challenged themselves to do physical activities such as standing on one foot or hopping for 100 seconds among other activities.
K1 student Rose N. shared, “I liked making the pictures out of the number 100. I made my 100 into a flower vase with bright colors.” Her classmate, Joseph G., said, “I made a crown, and we had 100 pictures that we had to turn into something, and I made an army tank. We made a castle out of 100 cups, and we also had things where you had to do ten movements ten times which makes 100 movements. We also tried to do as many movements as you can for 100 seconds.” The 100th Day of School celebration was an exhilarating, joyful day of learning!
