100 Days of Learning Fun!

Can you believe we have been in school for 100 days? It has gone by so fast! Here are some ways we celebrated the 100th day in school today: We counted 100 cheerios and made necklaces with them, we decorated 100th day crowns, we wrote about what we would buy if we had 100 dollars, we sang a 100th day song and read a poem with 100 words!

During our special 100th day centers, students count 100 cubes on a 100s chart and built something with 100 cubes!

 Here, students wrote 100 words from around our classroom!
We shared our 100th day projects...what great projects! I hope everyone enjoyed all the fun surprises we had today!

Studio in a School

 Our studio in a school program began this week with a visit from our resident artist, Monika. Monika is a sculptor and painter. She first introduced us to a few painters who make art using different kinds of lines. We talked about all the different kinds of lines you could make: straight, think, thin, wavy, curly, etc. We then learned how to use a variety of paint brushes to make lines.

Here, students are exploring making line art using black paint and white paper. Look at all the lines we made!
