Today is the '100th Day of School' for students here in Weyburn.
The students in Jennifer Woodard's Grade 1 class at St. Michael School are at the perfect age for observing such a day, and they've got a ton of fun planned to celebrate.
Woodard said they have been counting down all school year, and have been exploring the different ways we can count to 100.
But first, what every six-year-old really wants: dress-up time, of course.
"As many that want to, will dress up as a 100-year old person, and then we will write about what it will be like when we are 100, things that we can do and things that we can't do anymore, and what will look like," shared Woodard.
She said they also have games involving 100s, from building towers to chains of 100 links, comparing how long 100 of one item is compared to another, and even snakes and ladders.
"We've got some race to 100 and tally marks, so all sorts of ways just to practice counting to 100 by fives or by ones."
What would a celebration be without snacks?
Woodard said each student brings 100 of a snack today, such as Cheerios or Goldfish, and at the end of the day they each get to have those 100 snacks.
"They're getting an idea of how much is 100, You know, ten groups of 10 and having to count that out over and over again, which we've been doing a lot of this week. We've been pretty busy with lots of writing about 100 and counting, or we wrote 100 reasons we are blessed at St. Michael School. All the blessings we have with our family, and mom and dad, so we have 100 little hearts on my on my classroom door showing our hundred blessings that we could think of," she shared.
