100s Day is coming!

We have been counting the days of school since day 1. I told the children that when we get to day 100 we would have a special celebration!

We have been counting the days by 1s (at the beginning) then by 2s, 5s and 10s. We are really good at counting by 10s. We keep practicing that counting by 5s. It is hard!

Here we are counting some popsicle sticks by 10s.

We worked together to make bags of 100 popsicle sticks Each student took a bag of 100 popsicle sticks home. (one student thought that he was getting 100 popsicles. Sorry!) . At home, each student will build a structure using exactly 100 popsicle sticks. The Grade 1s can make any kind of structure that they wish. The Grade 2s must make a buoyant structure (it needs to float)! They can use glue or tape to join the sticks.

On February 10 we will have a special 100 Day Celebration. We will have many activities that revolve around the number 100. We might have to wait for our pool day on the following Tuesday to see if our buoyant structures float though!
