Today marks the 100th Day of School!
In elementary schools especially, this is a reason to celebrate. The Lobsters and Merfolk classes both dressed up as if they were 100 years old (first through second grade); the Jellies (kindergarten) joined the older classes in bringing in 100 of something.
100 is a great number to practice various math skills – skip counting, grouping, adding, multiplying, etc. If gives a chance for kids to think creatively and practice their writing: When I am 100 I will….
I gave two tours today to families looking at Alfred Adler Charter School for 2018-2019 school year. Both seemed to get a kick out of the individuality and creativity of our students – and teachers! Two of our teachers have also dressed up to celebrate the 100th Day of School. The kids love it when we get involved and have some fun with them.
(I have had more than one student ask if I dressed up – honestly, I was more focused on an important meeting I have at 5pm, and dressed for that. I completely forgot about 100th Day of School.)
How do you have fun at home? How do you celebrate “little” things?
