Some may think the 100th day of school is just an excuse for kindergartners to have a celebration at school. What many don't know is that it teaches our children and parents SO much! As we start learning about the 100th day and discuss bringing "collections" to school we learn new vocab as to what a collection is and different terminology we use for collections. Then, our kiddos get our parents involved in helping them with creating their own 100 collection or creating something to wear that has 100 things. This is something that is fun for our parents and kiddos to do together! One of my boys this year worked with his dad (who works in the military) gluing 100 army men to an army hat....what other time of the year would you get to do that! Then once our students get to school on the 100th day they get the opportunity to stand in front of the class and share their 100th day experience with the other students. This covers our speaking and listening standards while also opening up math opportunities. This year I had a student bring 100 pennies, a student had 100 tally marks, and of course several students make groups of 10. We then move on into the day making a 100th day snack (a class favorite!) and at the end of the day students take home a special snack to share with their parents. It is a celebration that is more than a celebration, it creates memories for the family. Oh, and our personal favorite pick today...the Star Wars theme...100 lightsabers!
