Sudbury Catholic Schools Celebrate the 100th Day of School
Elementary schools around the province are celebrating the “100th Day of School” this week. Teachers use this celebration day to reinforce required elementary numeracy skills such as — fun, hands on activities that focus on how to count to 100 by ones, twos, fives and tens, as well as sorting and classifying objects into groups. Literacy skills are reinforced by the presentation of thematic books and centres with a focus on oral communication.
At St. David School, the kindergarten class celebrated the day by reading the book “The 100th Day Worries”, created crowns with 100 objects pasted to them — then wore the crowns to celebrate during the day. The celebration ended with the creation of “fruitloop necklaces” — with 100 fruits loops on each.
