Today we celebrated being in school for 100 days.  We worked collaboratively to put together 100 piece puzzles.  We focused on phrases and words we used when we are working in a group.  Here are a few student quotes-  "Wow, you are smart!"  "Thanks for helping me!"  "Here I think you need this!"  "We did it, great teamwork!"  and finally "Wow, we finished let's go see if we can help someone else!"  By being caring communicators we were demonstrating the Learner Profile!  
Next we predicted how far we could walk if we only walked 100 steps.  We headed outside and took 100 steps.  We had to draw a map of our 100 step journey.  
Then we made our 100 day glasses so we could visit the kdg. and 3rd grade classrooms.  We were on a search for 100 words.  We categorized our words into 3 or fewer syllables and words that had 4 or more syllables.  We made a prediction that the third grade classes would have more words that had 4 or more syllables and we were right!  We also predicted that there would be more words in the kdg. classes.  Once we were in the kdg. rooms students looked around and said-  
"Wow it is WORD HEAVEN in here!"   
Finally we put all of our snacks together and  enjoyed our delicious 100 Day Friendship Snack! 
It was a great day!  

Reminder- Field Trip to the Bishop Museum this FRIDAY!  Please bring a lunch from home.
