MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- Daniel Warren Elementary School kindergartners in Mamaroneck observed the 100th day of school on Tuesday, Feb. 14, and celebrated by using the number 100 in a variety of ways.
Through the meaningful and enriching activities, students commemorated how much they have grown and learned since September, according to a release from the Rye Neck Union Free School District.
“Every day in our morning meeting we count the days of school, which builds a number sense for the kindergartners,” teacher Connie Levin said. “100 is a very big number to them and the activities helped make it into something concrete and much more tangible.”
Throughout the day, the students practiced counting to 100 by 1s and 10s, solved puzzles, constructed necklaces and shared their creative art projects, which were made out of 100 items, for the milestone event, the release said.
In addition to having fun on their 100th day of school, the students also gained a better understanding of place value and numbers through the activities.
