On Friday, February 22, Princeton Academy celebrated the 100th day of school in grand fashion.
The Bear Cubs spent the morning engaged in many counting activities. Each student had a contract to complete that brought them to centers set up around the classroom which had them counting, writing and measuring variations of 100. They even entered their Kindergarten suite through the zero of a large 100 hanging in the doorway. Prior to the day's celebrations, the boys were asked to bring in 100 items that could fit into a Ziploc bag – the creativity was inspiring... From pennies, LEGO people, Q-tips to beans, each boy brought in something different to count! The activity they were most excited about was the creation of "100th Day Hash" which was a mixture of all different ingredients that each boy was asked to bring in. They had to count 10 of each of the 10 ingredients to put into a brown bag to create the hash. It was inspiring to see how much fun they had doing math.
The 100th Day celebrations also extended into the classrooms of Grades 1-4 with math activities and plenty of excitement to go around. Grade 2 Lead Classroom Teacher Caroline Walradt shared, "The 100th Day was a blast. It is one of my favorite special days."
In second grade, students "rolled" their way to the 100th Day by rolling through the banner onto a gymnastics mat and enjoyed viewing all the different items they brought in for their class trail mix. The boys were also engaged in a variety of math activities, all dealing with counting up to 100.
Happy 100th Day, Princeton Academy!
