Friday, January 23, 2015 was the 100th Day of School at The Greenhouse. We celebrated school-wide with special activities in each class!
Several teachers came to school looking 100 years old. We especially enjoyed Miss Myrtle and Miss Gertle leading our chapel worship :-).
Students in grades kindergarten through grade 2 also came dressed as 100 year olds. Some had special glasses, most had flour-white hair while others needed a cane and one student had a paper white beard. Very creative indeed!
In PE, Mrs. Anderson had the students do 100 physical activities such as 10 jumping jacks, jumping 10 hurdles, bouncing a basketball 10 times, running 10 laps, etc. Amazing what the kids could do!
Grades 1-4 combined efforts for a multi-class scavenger hunt for numbers 1 through 100. In pairs, the students found the hidden numbers and then had to put them in order on the number line on the classroom floor.
In the 5th and 6th grade classroom, students were counting 100 items and then weighing and measuring them.
Even Miss Watts got into the spirit of things and brought Grandma Gracie to school! She can give you Miss Watt’s list of Top 100 Favorite Books in the ERC.
Overall, the day was most enjoyable with opportunities for teamwork and math and a break from the routines of school.
P.S. Don’t tell the kids they were doing math!
