ON HilemanOn Friday, January 31, we celebrated the 100th day of school. Ms. Hileman’s second-grade class celebrated by making hats, and by jumping as many times as they could in 100 seconds. “I think the highest was 250 jumps,” said Ms. Hileman.

“My students wrote an essay on what they would do with $100 if they had it. I got a lot of essays about how many toys, tablets and Xboxes they would buy,” she said.

Students used manipulatives to see how many ways they could make 100. Recently, second graders started to learn about multiplication. The students showed how 25 x 4 =100, 50 x 2=100 and more.  They also related this to money. The children counted to 100 by 2s, 3s and 5s. “They also corrected sentences about 100’s day, listened to a read-aloud about 100 days of school, and since I’ve looped with these students since they were in kindergarten, we made connections to how we celebrated in previous years,” said Ms. Hileman.

“It’s amazing what they remember that I don’t.  At the end of the day, they wrote about what they did on their 100th day of school. It was a great day of celebrating and none of us can believe how quickly 100 days went by,” she said.
