First Baptist Church School celebrated their 100th day of school with many educational and fun activities planned throughout the day. Their prekinder classes counted their steps to and from the cafeteria to see if they took 100 steps. They counted 100 M&Ms to take home as a prize, drew pictures of what they may look like at 100 years of age and answered the question, “If you could have 100 of any one thing, what would it be?” In addition, they created a special picture using the number 100 drawn on a paper. They read two books, Happy 100th Day by Susan Milford and Mrs. Bindergarten Celebrates 100 by Joseph Slate.

The kindergarten classes participated in math activities all day by counting to 100 by ones, fives and tens; they sang the song, “Everybody has been in School 100 Days”; they were encouraged to bring 100 items of their choice, and they sported 100 Day Badges showing that they had been successful doing their math activities.

The first-graders also read a book about the 100th Day of School. The children counted many different objects in their classroom that had 100 pieces or parts, such as legos, puzzles, colors, pages of a book and bricks on the wall. They were treated to surprises that were placed on their desks every time they changed classes.

The second-graders participated in many math activities and created a 100-count snack for them to enjoy.

The third-graders participated by creating snack bags made up of 100 snack items. They were asked to choose four activities from a list including: taking 100 steps, counting to 100, listing 100 words, touching their toes 100 times, jumping 100 times, bouncing a ball 100 times, writing the numbers 1 to 100 and drawing 100 tally marks. They chose partners and completed the activities as they were timed.

The fourth-, fifth- and sixth-graders joined in the fun at the end of the day when they were given a bottle of bubbles and being asked to blow 100 bubbles. The students and staff had a great day enjoying the fact that learning can be fun.
