February 2 marked a milestone in Sebring kindergarten classes as the students celebrated their 100th day of school.
Students rotated through interactive activities throughout the day as they practiced counting and writing numbers to 100.
“We take a very fun and hands-on approach to learning here at BL Miller, and the 100th day is no exception,” says Sebring kindergarten teacher Betsy Walsh.
Crafts, activities, and games had students counting their way to 100 several times throughout the day - by one, fives, and tens - as they celebrated. This year, students created a poster with a collection of 100 items on it. Students had the opportunity to show off their display and count to 100 for their class. Even a special 100th-day trail mix snack required students to count out ten pieces of ten different snack items into a treat bag.
The skills and knowledge gained in the first 100 days of kindergarten goes far beyond counting to 100, explains Walsh.
“Our philosophy is to meet every child exactly where they are at, and our small class sizes allow us to set every student up for success,” says Walsh. “We provide a child-centered and hands-on classroom environment with a curriculum that integrates play into the day in order to foster the social and emotional needs of our learners.”
