It was officially 100 days of school! We had a great day celebrating. Some of us even dressed up as 100 year olds! We all ended up with wrinkles but they were definitely laugh lines!! The kiddos got to take part in a whole bunch of activities that had them thinking of 100 in many different ways. They noticed that when you count to 100 by ones it takes a very long time, and it is easy to get mixed up, so we devised a plan to get there faster And make it easier) we counted by 2's, 5's, 10's and even 25's!!! As they were doing the skip counting, these math magicians noticed that all of the counting they did was actually just counting patterns..."this is so easy!!" they all said ( I love those self-discovery moments!) Then one of my "wonderers" challenged the rest of the class to come up with 100 words about Room 14. Within minutes they had a plethora of words that tell all about what we value and who we are in Room 14. I absolutely love spending time with these amazing kiddos! I'm just wishing I could have another hundred days with them!!!
