The kids worked together creating things out of 100 objects. Here are some of the things that they worked on:
|Counting 100 drops of water was fun!|
|They could not believe it did not fill up the whole cup!|
|100 3-D Shapes|
|100 loose parts|
|100 Unifix Cubes|
|100 Pattern Blocks|
|Weighing 100 collections brought in by the kids.|
The kids practiced counting to 100 by creating groups of 10 fruit loops on a 100 chart, then used their fine motor skills to string the fruit loops onto a piece of yarn to create a necklace to represent 100. This process takes longer than you would think! Their stamina was pushed to the limit but they just reminded themselves of our class mantra: "In Kindergarten, we do hard things!"
We ended the day by taking the 100 collections that the kids brought in and presenting them in creative ways at our tables to create a 100 museum, along with our other 100 creations.
They made labels for their displays and the other 100 creations and invited Mrs. Kelly's class to come and enjoy our 100 Museum.
I think when we come back on Monday, we will try to record 100 acts of kindness in one day! With this group, that will be an easy task!
