Then we continued with filling in a circle map of what we had learned so far in First Grade. The students then used this chart to write about their own learning.
For writing we had our students use descriptive words to predict and describe what they thought they would look like in a hundred years. It was very interesting to see what some of my students thought they would be like in a hundred years. I even had some students describe what they thought the world would be like.....aliens would be here, flying cars, and my favorite.....computerized teachers.
As a follow up the students also created a portrait of what they would look like in a hundred years. This particular student said he was going to be an angry grandfather who didn't like kids....I love his wrinkled chin.
For math each student had to create an art project using 100 items. Yes, we combined art and Math as well as English Language Development. Our students could pick any object and then use it to create any art project they choose. Then ofcourse they had to present in English what materials they had used, why they choose those materials and why they choose to portray the art they did. These are just a few of the projects that were created.
100 cheerios made a happy sun,
100 Trix cereal made beautiful flowers,
80 fish crackers and 20 gummy fish in groups of 5 made a beautiful ocean.
100 foam boots made the feet for a centipede and 100 pom poms made apples for this beautiful tree..
Other 100 days of School books to read.
