Bronxville Elementary School kindergartners celebrated the 100th day of school on Feb. 15 with a variety of hands-on activities to commemorate the exciting milestone. The day served as a reminder of how much they have grown and learned since September. 

Throughout the day, the students used the number 100 in a variety of activities, including making 100th day hats, counting by 10s, 5s and 1s, and playing “Race to 100” with partners. They also searched for 100 chocolate kisses, which their teachers hid around the classroom, encouraging them to identify the numbers 1-100 on the bottom of the kisses and place each item onto a classroom chart. The activities continued as the students wrote their numbers, explored the hundreds chart and built knowledge of numbers. 

“The 100th day of school is always a highlight of the year,” kindergarten teacher Janissa Wiles said. “This is because we’ve been learning and laughing for 100 days. The classes have been counting each day of school on ten-frames during morning meetings.” 

The activities, which were centered around the number 100, served as creative ways to get the students invested in the day and encourage them to continue to learn and grow while having fun.
