The 100th day of school is a great way for elementary school teachers to celebrate the various mathematical concepts that can be taught using the number 100. From the very first day of school, our schools begin keeping track of the number of days they've been in school in anticipation of the 100th day of school!

Classroom teachers and educators have been engaging our students in activities that promote fun and memorable learning. These activities include physical activities that include doing 10 different sets of ten 10 exercises as a way to learn the concept that 10 sets of 10 equal 100; bringing in a collection of 100 items; making patterns and necklaces using 100 of an item; creating 100-day shirts; scavenger hunts and special lunches and celebrations with our school families.

At St. Hilary Catholic School in Red Rock, the students and staff celebrated the day by making 100-day crowns and t-shirts and participated in various activities that encouraged students to sort and count to 100.

Two grade 1 and 2 students at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School in Manitouwadge started the day off reading this 100th-day prayer on the PA:

God, we are amazed that we have already been in school for 100 days this year! Thank you for all that we have learned. Thank you for our friends and classmates. Thank you for our teachers and parents, who have taught us all these days. For each and every day, we give you thanks and praise. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Throughout the day the grade one and two class made 100th-day crowns, estimated how many rolls (on a dice) it would take to fill a 100's chart and completed it. They decorated our hands (on bulletin board) and counted by 5's to 100. They drew what they looked like today and 100 years from now. The students completed 100 exercises.
