MINISINK’S YOUNGER STUDENTS CELEBRATE 100 DAYS OF LEARNING
Like scores of classrooms across the country, many of our younger classes keep track of the number of school days from day-one to the 100th day, for 100 reasons. Using a calendar and meaningful visualizations, this daily routine helps students assimilate basic math concepts like sequence, quantity and place value. A little motivation lies ahead, too.
The 100th day of school arrived on Wednesday, Feb. 15, and our younger students could hardly wait to celebrate with engaging, colorful and edible activities that put their math skills to the test.
In Mrs. Hoffman’s first grade class, for instance, students created necklaces using 100 beads, played Pin Benjamin Franklin on a $100 bill, and they made their own trail mix by counting and placing 10 groups of 10 snacks each on their worksheets. Using Smarties to answer questions on a graph worksheet, they grew 100 Days Smarter and had fun coloring the graph with the appropriate colors. A real treat in every way.
