Wednesday, February 19 was the 100th day of the 2013-2014 school year. We keep track of the days on our Smartboard calendar and have been talking about this day all year. For example, on the 64th day of school, we would think that 6 more is 70 and then 30 more is 100 so we were 36 days away. Here is a website where you can practice making complimentary numbers. Our friends in Grade 1-2 brought in collections of 100 items to mark the day and some of us did too.
We have been working on cursive writing since Christmas so our teacher challenged us to write 100 words in cursive. It was time to go to gym so we will have to continue the challenge tomorrow! We found out that 100 words is a lot of writing. It sure speeds things up when you choose short words or just add an "s" though! How long would it take you to write 100 words?
