February 2, 2015
February 25th was the hundredth day of the school year and hearing that the three kindergarten classes celebrate the Hundredth Day each year, I went down to the second floor to see what the little boys and their teachers were up to. It was clear that the teachers (Blaise Bulfair, Margaret Garfinkel, Alice Heminway, Jesse Montero, Brooke Parker and Jennifer Phillips) had been pointing to this celebration for sometime as the classroom walls were covered with drawings of boys’ collections of 100 objects — toy cars, dinosaurs, fingerprints, and in one case 100 bloody teeth. There were also collections of things that live one hundred years, like trees and tortoises and great grandparents. Wearing necklaces they had strung with 100 Froot Loops, groups of boys were moving through several stations — some were exercising (a total of 100 toe touches, push-ups, Spiderman lunges, sumo squats and the like); at the snack table were plastic bags of 100 treats pre-counted by boys; at the math station, devoted to base-ten, boys were collecting and counting things in groups of 10s and 100s; and finally, at the explorers’ station, boys first predicted how far they would walk and then set out from the classroom on a 100-footstep trek. I was particularly taken by models boys had built using only toothpicks, gumdrops and their six-year old imaginations. There was a Houseboat on the Hudson River, a sports center in Minnesota, and a two-dimensional model of a subway that stretched from one boy’s apartment on 89th Street to the School on 78th Street. “It goes on to Central Park,” Ryan told me. While I was there, Declan was showing the other boys his toothpick and gumdrop triangular prism. “If I spin it,” he said, “it turns into a diamond. It’s an optical illusion.” And he did spin it, a prism, perfect and pink-tipped in the bright mid-morning winter sun. This celebratory learning is not unusual in the School and a thoughtful and well-planned foil to this year’s long cold winter.
