Gillispie “Gem” of the Week

While the school year can sometimes pass in the blink of an eye, a special day each year encourages us to pause, reflect, . . . and perhaps even do a project blending math and art!

To commemorate this Monday’s 100th day of school, Prekindergarten Rooms 5 and 6 painted 100-square “murals” on their classroom tables. Teachers and students built an outline using painter’s tape, and students then took turns choosing a number square between 1 and 100 to paint. The next day, the tape was removed to reveal a beautiful design arrayed on a 10×10 grid.
