Cove Students and Teachers Celebrate 100th Day of School | Herald of Copperas Cove


Students paraded through the halls, stacked cups as high as they could, created hats and sunglasses, made 100th day medallions to celebrate Copperas Cove ISD’s milestone day of learning. The annual festivities are another fun way for kids to reinforce the reading, writing and, most importantly, math skills they’ve learned since the start of the school year. Students expect to count to 100 several times on the 100th day of school. Cove schools engaged children with many different activities and ways to count to 100.

“Students made their hats with 10 strips of paper and each paper contains 10 letters, numbers, stickers, patterns and shapes to create 100 items on the hats,” said Mae Stevens Early Learning Academy teacher Ashley Prax.

Math was made fun when students counted 100 pieces of cereal in groups of 10, stringing them together to make necklaces they could enjoy as snacks throughout the day.

Students at Hettie Halstead Elementary formed a human digital line, marching through school hallways, banging on a tambourine, while counting their steps.

“I was so excited to see students dressed up as adorable little old people,” said first grade teacher Jasmin Hight. “They enjoyed parading around the room holding their 100 Day signs for the other students.”

Teachers used the traditional day to go beyond math skills and engaged students in reading, writing and drawing using poems, predicting what life might be like in 100 years, reading books on numbers to 100 and writing how they would spend $100.

The students drew pictures of what they think the future holds.

Students were encouraged to write how they are 100 days smarter and were amazed at how far they have come.

“Kindergarten had a great time celebrating the 100th day of school 100th day style,” said Clements/Parsons Elementary kindergarten teacher Alyssa Cox. “We did activities that had to do with the number 100 like a 100th day snack, a hat, sunglasses, 100 fruit bows on a necklace, 100 licks on a lollipop and so much more. Kindergarteners had fun exploring the number 100 all day.
