Howdy friends! Can you believe that Thanksgiving in the United States is just over two weeks away, crazy! Well, speaking of crazy we had a crazy day in first grade yesterday. We celebrated our 50th day of school with a 1950’s sock hop. The kids (and myself) had so much fun.
We started our morning with some math activities related to the number 50.
And a few others, not shown. Our morning math tubs were the same, just full of 50th day activities. After some math, we had our music teacher do some 50’s dancing and the hand jive. So much fun! Here is my son hand jiving while showing off his stylish bunny teeth!
We made jukebox’s. We will finish with the writing part later this week.
After lunch we put all three first grade classes together and they went to 5 stations. One station was tootsie roll measuring and bubble gum blowing.
Next, the students played with toys from the 1905’s and got to see how a record player works.
Roll, Graph and Do
50th day is hard work, so of course root beer floats were in order.
And the last station we had was good ole’ hula hoop and jump roping fun!
It was such a fun day! And I still have some follow up activities planned for tomorrow.
