Celebrating the number 100!

If you include weekends (and really, on what day do you not have a learning experience? :-) ), yesterday was our 100th day of homeschooling. So, we've been celebrating the number 100!

First, I made a 10x10 square grid for S, and he wrote in the numbers from 1 to 100. He wasn't beyond the mid-20's when he started noting number patterns he saw emerging.

Have you ever wondered what 100 Cheerios look like on a 100 cm piece of yarn? (It's even more when you factor in the broken pieces which have to be eaten!)

In the afternoon, he estimated how far 100 steps would take him. Pretty far, as it turned out! He started at our mailbox, and ended up "across the big street!"
