Happy 100th day of school!
Wakefield Community Schools celebrated its 100th day of school in style this year (as we do every year!) It’s always an exciting time for the younger students as we are currently talking about BIG numbers – so celebrating this BIG day is a highlight of the year!
Each year we try to do something a bit different, but there are definitely favorites for each class. In our room, for 15 years straight we’ve counted Dalmatians each day and put them on the wall of our classroom. This is a great “reminder” of the numbers we’ve learned and helps greatly when learning to skip count or talk about terms such as before, between, and after. Logically, on the 100th day (101st would probably be more appropriate, but . . . .) we watch the "101 Dalmatians" movie. This year we recorded 100 words that we can read, made hats with 100 stickers, practiced writing to 100, and made a “100 Treats Trail Mix” to eat during the movie.
The following are pictures to document our celebration – ENJOY!
