From an Everett Public Schools News Release.
100 days of school inspires kindergarteners to practice skills while celebrating.
On the 100th day of school, kindergarten students at Woodside Elementary were shocked and delighted to see their teachers transform into 100-year-old ladies.
“This day is especially important in kindergarten because of the alignment to the math Common Core State Standard: Count to 100 by ones and by tens,” explained Woodside Principal, Dr. Betty Cobbs.
In addition to counting up to the day 100, students had opportunities to participate in “Math Talks” about patterns in the 100 chart and estimating numbers to 100.
During the 100th day, teachers incorporate the concept of 100 across content areas by reading books about 100 and having students create opinion pieces about their favorite 100 items.
Students also explore 100 in art by creating a portrait of themselves at 100 years old and writing what they will do at 100.
“When I am 100 years old, I will eat candy every day and be the boss of the whole city!” shared kindergarten student Emma.
“When I am 100, I am not gonna hear somebody,” stated Donald.
Aaliyah said, “When I am 100 years old, I will do what all old people do, make clothes.”
