Either way, I still wanted to share with you the excitement we experienced on the 100th day of school!
The children were very engaged in creating a 100th day crown that truly challenged their mathematical thinking. We had pre-made the base and stapled 10 strips to the base. Each strip was a different color. For each strip, I gave the children a task. This really challenged their oral listening skills, too!
Austin is writing the numerals from 1-10 on the green strip.
Abby is writing her name 10 times on the light blue strip!
Here is a completed crown! 10 items on each one of the 10 strips means-- 100!
Audrey is sporting her 100th Day Crown!
Now, what would a special day be like in Mrs. Lochel's class without a snack to compliment it?? That would be unheard of! So, we soon got to work on a 100 piece snack-- here are the options and a blank 100 grid.
Giovanna got started with 10 marshmellows and 10 M & M's.
Nathan continued on with Cheez-Its and Goldfish.
Kailyn added pretzels and chocolate covered raisins.
10 pieces of 10 different snack items means--100!
We ate a handful and packed the rest up to take home. It sure was interesting to see just what a 100 piece snack looked like!
