We had another incredible week here at Jacks Creek Elementary School as we celebrated our 100th day of school!
Kindergarten had a fantastic week. Students worked on reading words with blends, sentence writing, sight words, counting to 100 by ones and 10s, building bigger shapes from smaller shapes and adding. We celebrated the 100th day of school on Friday, Jan. 27, with fun activities, and students were able to dress like they were 100 years old. Please continue to check folders daily for homework and important information being sent home. 
We had a wonderful week in first grade! We learned about the history of space exploration, exploration of the moon and the solar system. In skills, we reviewed for our unit three tests and enjoyed finishing up our Fables reader. In math we finished unit four over subtraction strategies with 20 and took our unit test. The most fun of all was getting to celebrate the 100th day of school! We brought in 100 objects from home and practiced our counting skills, raced to 100 with dice, wrote about what we think we might be like at 100 years old, dressed up and ate cupcakes! 
 In second grade last week, we wrapped up our reading unit on The War of 1812. This was a very exciting unit, learning about the war, some very important battles, the first four presidents and pirates and privateers! We are now learning about the Westward Expansion where our country continued to grow. In math we are learning to tell time to the hour, half-hour, and five-minute intervals. We want to be able to use an analog clock to know how long it is until our favorite shows, supper time, bed time, etc.
We finally reached our 100th day of school. We celebrated with several fun activities. We read passages about our 100th day, placed fractions on number lines and even drew portraits of how we will look on our 100th birthday. The best part was dressing up as our future 100 year old selves and having cupcakes!
Our first student spotlight of the week goes to Josie McClellan, whose favorite food is pizza and favorite book is “Pete the Cat.” Our second student spotlight of the week goes to Grayson Johnson, whose favorite food is pizza and favorite books are books about Spider-Man. We are proud to have these students shine brightly at our school!
