Elementary students around Francis Howell School District are 100 days smarter as they celebrated reaching the 100th day of the 2016-17 school year this week. They marked the special day with a variety of activities that emphasized the number 100.
Students brought in 100 of their favorite items to show their fellow classmates including pompoms, fruit cereal, sequins, and Lego pieces. They also built towers of 100 drinking cups and sampled snacks with a 100th day theme. Many students imagined what they would look like in 100 years and dressed the part.
Celebrating the 100th day gives our elementary schools an opportunity to mark the milestone while also incorporating more math instruction in a fun and learning way.
