100th Day of School and Valentine's Day

It was a very busy day in grade 1 today!  The students and I decided to try to tweet 100 tweets about things we love in honour of our 100th day of school.  I am proud to say we accomplished and surpassed our goal!  There are over 200 tweets under the hash tag #vd100 (Valentine's Day 100).  We had classes and or people responding from Guatemala, Nebraska, British Columbia, Texas and California to our tweets.  The students typed their tweets on the iPads and we periodically checked our tweets and the responses on the smart board.  I loved what one of the students said while we were watching the tweets on the smart board. One student said, "It sure makes the world seem small when you can talk to anyone in the world on twitter."   I love how twitter has engaged my students in a meaningful way that is relevant to the world we live in.

Here are a few more pictures from today:
 We dressed up like we were 100 years old.

We wrote our numbers to 100.

We looked for number words in a word search.

  1. I love seeing this great learning by your students Mrs. Wideen! My grade one students also did some fantastic learning for our 100th day of school. I think I might have to show my class your class blog. They love to meet new children from around the world. Thanks for sharing your learning with us.
