At TCSI, the 100th day of school was an exciting experience and marked a special opportunity to reflect upon and celebrate major milestones in our students’ academic achievements. It was celebrated by organizing a classroom and school celebration that engaged students in activities that promoted special fun and memorable learning. Students talked about all the learning that they had done and discussed the favorite parts of their school year. It was a day that incorporated a number of math concepts and combined all aspects of the curriculum in a focused way. Students integrated science, reading, writing and social studies throughout the week leading up to the 100th-day celebration at the school as it was a whole curriculum approach to learning.
Year 1 and 2 students created 100 days of school crown using stickers and stamps to count to 100 and designed their own 100 days of school T-shirt to showcase on this special day. They spent the day refining their math skills by participating in a variety of games and activities centered around the very important number 100. They thoroughly enjoyed the writing activities throughout the week where they had to discuss and share their ideas with their partners on the topics like If I were 100 years old or If I had 100 dollars. They played games, made some self-creation of what they might look like when they would turn 100. In the library, they were told about authors and stories that were penned 100 years ago such as Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland.
The children and teachers greatly enjoyed this day which combined a lot of fun with learning.
