Dobbins Elementary School celebrated the 100th day of school Feb. 11 by partaking in many activities involving the number “100.” The 100th day of school turned into a great chance for a lesson in math and counting, reading, and teacher-made activities.
The school was filled with celebrations of the day, but kindergarten classes made the day truly spectacular.
There are two kindergarten classes at Dobbins, one taught by Nick Henry and the other taught by Elaine Fabrizi. Both classes asked students to bring in 100 of an object around the house. Popular items brought in were puzzle pieces, toy cars, pennies and marbles.
In Fabrizi’s class, students brought in food to share. Each student was given 10 pieces of 10 different types of food. Fabrizi turned this into a lesson of counting by ones, fives, and 10s to see which way was the fastest. After the lesson, students were able to eat the food. They also watched “101 Dalmatians.”
Kindergarten students also participated in a 100th day of school tradition at Dobbins by taking a 100-step walk around the school. Both classes walked forward 100 steps to see how far they could go and also walked backward 100 steps to show that the same distance was covered.
