Kindergartners around the Massapequa School District showcased their counting skills with a host of activities that marked the 100th day of school.
Students at East Lake Elementary School found their “inner divas” by designing original 100th-Day T-shirts and modeling them down a red carpet, while students at Birch Lane and Lockhart elementary schools quickly “aged” by dressing as centenarians.
McKenna Elementary School students measured and colored a snake 100 inches long and followed 100 paper hearts to the principal’s office where they received a surprise, while Fairfield Elementary School students drew 10 dots on paper ladybugs and counted by tens to 100. At Unqua Elementary School, they made necklaces with 100 fruit loops, built towers with 100 red cups, matched numbers on a number chart, and picked 10 items from 10 containers for goodie bags.
Other festivities included making 100 day hats, illustrating a portrait of themselves at 100 years old, doing 100 exercises, sorting 100 unifix cubes in groups of 10 and participating in math and English language arts activities centered on the number 100. The children also shared 100 treats that they brought from home with their classmates.
