Happy Hundred Day!

February 10, 2010 was the 100th day of school in Forestburg Grade One. This brought a lot of excitement to our little classroom. The students were invited to bring a collection of 100 objects. These included pennies, candies, lego, hockey cards, miscellaneous objects, tea bags, 50/50 tickets, pasta, rocks shells, beads, index cards, raisins, smarties, and popcorn. We enjoyed seeing the collections everyone had brought. We read several 100 Day stories, and we made some super cool 100 shaped glasses. We wrote the numbers from 0-100 and built groups of 100 using a variety of manipulatives. We made igloos in science using 100 marshmallows, which fit in perfectly with our Building Things science unit. We were also surprised with a visit from Zero the Hero, who visits us every ten days of school. We finished off the day by writing about what it would be like to be 100 years old and drawing self portraits of what we will look like at 100 years old! It was another great day where a lot of learning was accomplished and we had a lot of fun doing it!

When Layton was going to bed tonight he said he wished that tomorrow could be today again because today was so much fun at school! Thank you, Mrs. Adams for all the extras you do to make Grade 1 so much fun.
