100th Day

We reached our 100th day of school on Friday.

This year I wasn't feeling well. I was starting to come down with the cold of the decade (it's been a tough one!), so we didn't have quite the huge celebration of the number 100 as we did last year. There were M&Ms though, so all is right in the world.

We started by pouring M&Ms in a bowl. Kate was to tell me to stop when she thought there were 100 in the bowl. She stopped me at 97. A very good estimate!

We counted groups of 10.

Then we counted to 100 by 10's and by 1's.

Then we made a distribution chart by color. We could then see that there are more blues than any other color in our sample and less oranges. There were equal numbers of green and yellow.

Then there is the most disappointing part of the day, having to divide the M&Ms into three bowls (33 1/3 each) so that the munchkins could eat them. Maybe I helped out by putting the odd one in a bowl though. Shh!

Congratulations on getting to your 100th day again! Wish I could have been there to get some those M & M's!
Hope your colds are better today. Love you.

Kate probably guessed better than I could. Way to go!
