Elementary students celebrate '100th day of school'
Teachers take advantage of opportunity to make math fun!
. . . 97 . . . 98 . . . 99 . . . 100!!!
On Wednesday, Jan. 22, Wahoo Elementary students celebrated the 100th Day of School!
The event, celebrated yearly on the 100th day of the school year, gives students the opportunity to learn about the importance of this large, three-digit figure.
Students spent the day refining their math skills by participating in a variety of games and activities centered around this very important number.
From hats, glasses and self-portraits, to the use of technology to illustrate the not-so-subtle differences between an 8-year-old and a centenarian, students learned that mathematics goes well beyond simply being able to simply count to 20!
Below are some pictures from the celebration.
Kindergarten had a full day of fun on the 100th Day! We did 100 exercises in sets of tens, reminisced about our last 100 days and all that we have learned, then wrote a story about it, counted to 100 in lots of different ways, and made a one hundred-ful 100th Day Trail Mix, counting 10 pieces of 10 different things to go into our bag! It was delicious!!!

Student's in Mrs. Sherman's class used an iPad app to help illustrate how they might look by the time they reach the age of 100. They also wrote paragraphs about "The 100-Year-Old Me."
