Chappaqua Kindergartners Reach 100 Days in School

CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. – Chappaqua kindergartners district-wide celebrated the beginning of their school careers on Wednesday by counting all 100 days they have spent as students.

The event was celebrated as part of the kindergarten math curriculum, which involves counting, adding, subtracting, grouping and more. To show all the different ways they know to count to 100, students created display boards with dimes, donuts and other objects.

“They’re practicing counting by ones,” said Roaring Brook teacher Patricia Kiernan. “They count by tens and groups of five.”

Also tying into their 100th day of school, kindergartners filled out worksheets asking what they would choose if they could have 100 of anything. Answers included vacations, video games, ice cream, pools, and houses.

The students also tested their weighing and measuring skills by using cans of food they helped collect for a local pantry. Students sorted cans in groups of ten, and also used scales to determine which cans were heavier and which ones were lighter.

Kiernan believes working with items that are familiar to them gives the lesson plans more impact.

“They really need to explain that one’s heavier because it goes down,” said Kiernan. “It’s what I would consider very meaningful, as opposed to taking two objects that don’t mean anything to them.”
