First Grade Celebrates Giving with the 100th Day of School
As part of the 100 days of school celebration, first grade collected cereal bars this week. Our goal was to collect 100 bars per class, however, we have collected much more! These cereal bars will be donated to the Union County Crisis Assistance Ministry's food pantry. We were very excited to teach our children that giving is also a way to celebrate.
In celebration of the 100th day the children also dressed up as if they were 100 years old. It was hilarious to see all the different perspectives of what 100 years looks like to each person. We felt like we were in a nursing home instead of an elementary school! The children particapated in math centers using the number 100 by making tally marks, measuring, skip counting by ones, twos, fives, and tens, just to name a few. Then the children colored a picture of what they would look like at 100 years old and wrote about it. It is so neat to see what children really think about being 100 years old.
