THE 100TH DAY OF SCHOOL PROJECT


   The 100th Day of School will soon be here! The 100th day of school this
year will be Monday, Jan. 29.  The second grade students celebrate this day
in many ways.  Each student makes a project at home using 100 items and
displays them in equal groups on a poster board.  Then students from pre-k
through first grade come to view our projects.  Please be sure that your
child has included all of the components listed below on his/her project.
   Please do not send in the project any earlier than Jan. 29, since storage
is a problem.  The project may be damaged if it sits in the classroom too long.
All projects must be in the classroom on Jan. 29, 2018 by 8:00 a.m.  That is
the 100th day of school, presuming that we do not have any snow days
between now and then.  If we do have a snow day within that time frame,
then we will move the 100th day project to Jan. 30 or later depending on the
number of snow days we have.   


All projects must include the following:
1)   Student writes name neatly on the front of the poster.
2)   There must be 100 items -no more, no less.  Bring a couple of extra
items in a baggie in case they fall off in the bus/car.
3)   All items must be grouped neatly (i.e. rows, columns, etc.).
4)   Poster must include a number sentence showing the relationship
of the groups to 100 (i.e. 4 x 25 = 100, 2 x 50 = 100, 50 + 50 = 100,
25+25+25+25=100, etc.)
5)   Neatness is important!  (Watch out for glue blobs, smeared writing,
etc.)
Please talk over several project ideas with your child.  Your child should
have several ideas to choose from in case their first choice gets picked.
 We do not want 4 students to do the same project: ex. 100 pennies.  On
Friday we will draw names and choose projects.  Also, please include how
the 100 items will be grouped and arranged:
100 cheerios grouped in 2 groups of 50
100 q-tips grouped in 4 groups of 25
100 macaroni grouped in 50 groups of 2
100 stickers grouped in 20 groups of 5
You should not use large objects such as rocks or tennis balls.
All objects will be glued to a poster board (please do not use tri-fold boards).  
Poster board should not be bigger than 22 inches by 28 inches.
Other ideas used in the past:
Cotton balls, raisins, noodles, stamps, milk bottle caps, Hershey
Kisses, candies, gummy bears, band aids, crayons, etc.

Be creative!
