100th Day at Nixon Elementary School


 100th Day at Nixon Elementary School 

Roxbury, NJ (February 17, 2017) – Students in the Roxbury Township Public Schools celebrated the 100th day of this school year on Valentine’s Day. 

Kindergarteners at Nixon Elementary School choose to tie-in the 100th day with a math lesson. 

Students were asked to gather a collection of 100 things at home prior to the actual celebration and then bring them in to share with their friends at school. 

From 100 jewels on a “diamond” ring to 100 dog bones and 100 beads on a necklace, the students were able to concretely show and see the quantity of 100. The first number with three digits they’ve learned so far! 

The celebration continued at school when the students wrote about something they wished they had 100 of, read a 100th day book, exercised and counted to 100, created the number 100 with groups of ten objects and more! 

Abigail Scales, Kindergarten teacher at the school shared that, “The day was a perfect culmination of our math unit Numbers to 100.” 

The projects are currently on display in the Nixon School lobby. Please stop by to see all of the kindergarteners’ creativity and mathematical minds at their best!
