Wow! Kindergarten children have now been in school for 100 days. It feels like the first day of school was just yesterday. We have been eagerly awaiting this day, and we are so excited! All of our math practice during the past few weeks has been building up to our 100th day. Counting by 10's and beginning to learn how to count by 5's have been the primary focus during math workshop and small group math time. We spent a lot of time looking at the hundreds chart every day during morning meeting; we thought about place value, identified teen numbers, filled in blank number grids, and looked for patterns. During our Tuesday morning math sessions small groups of children played our popular game of race to 100. On the 100th day we challenged the students to do various math activities; we asked them what would they do if they had 100 dollars, they performed different exercise routines for 100 seconds, and they participated in building challenges with 100 pieces. Challenge your children at home to point out numbers on a 100's grid, fill in the missing numbers, or count in succession. All of these activities will support their numerical awareness. Cheers to another productive 100 days!
