Students celebrate 100 days of learning
Thursday, Jan. 28, marked the 100th day students at Luverne Elementary have attended classes for the 2015-16 school year.
“The 100th Day is a tradition at LES,” said Principal Stacy Gillette. “It coincides with our math curriculum and our 100s chart that we use with our students.”
Classrooms in kindergarten through fifth grade use the 100s chart to practice a variety of skills, including counting, adding, subtracting and multiplying.
The charts, when combined with celebrating the 100th day of school, added up to plenty of activities.
“We had a lot of fun,” Gillette told school board members at their meeting later that night. “We had a lot of crowns, a lot of stickers, building stuff and eating stuff related to 100.”
Students donned paper crowns that read “100 Days Smarter” and had a “100” snack. Silly activities included how many times a student could write his or her name in 100 seconds, stand on one foot for 100 seconds or count to 100 by 10s.
