Gribbin Students get 100 days smarter


Glen Cove students at Gribbin School celebrated the 100th day of school with a variety of fun academic activities that incorporated counting to 100.

In Michelle Mardiney’s bilingual kindergarten class, students did 100 exercises while watching a video that showed them how to count to 100 in Spanish. They also created necklaces using 100 beads and practiced writing out their numbers.

Meanwhile, kindergartners in Irene Kamola’s class participated in mathematics-themed centers that focused on counting to 100.

First-graders enjoyed a 100-day snack comprised of pretzel rods and clementines. They also completed a writing activity that focused on what they’d like to have 100 of, and organized items in groups of five, ten and 25 to make different configurations of 100.
