No joke, it's one of my FAVORITE days of the year!!!! Why???? It's 50's day in my room! I did the same thing last year.
I started off decorating my room this morning!
During center rotations, the kids worked on a few 50th day worksheets I purchased from TPT. They compared the 1950s to today. That is ALWAYS a blast! Especially when you tell them that TV back then was in black and white and you only had 3 channels! Their reactions are PRICELESS!!! During art center, they made a record. (I'll have to post the record pictures next time.)
After lunch, we did a writing craft inspired by Cara Carroll!
Next, we made root beer floats! The kids enjoyed watching the ice cream float to the top. Some of them LOVED the root beer floats. Most just loved the ice cream! :-)
I LOVE my firsties!!!!! So cute!
Now it's PARTY TIME! First we did the limbo!
Then we were hula hooping!
Next week, the students will do an opinion writing on their favorite thing about the 50th day of school. They will also write an informative piece on how to make a root beer float! :-)
I don't know about you, but all this 50's fun has me worn out!
Thanks for reading!
Have a great night and a great weekend!!!
