50s Day!

Well, we made it to the 50th day of school for the 2009-2010 school year. This year the whole 1st grade took part in the festivities! It was great fun. We dressed the part, watched the candy factory episode of I Love Lucy and rotated to 5 different centers. We hula hooped, limbo rocked, took part in a bubble gum blowing contest, painted a poodle with 50 dots, made a Fruit Loop necklace, made a record (What are those?)and enjoyed root beer floats. It was funny because another teacher asked why we were celebrating the 50s day and a child replied "...because we have 50 states." Funny how we count each day, talk about tens and ones, count money and they sometimes forget why. I asked my class and their simple response was because we were on our way to the 100th day. Out of the mouths of babes. We sure did have fun as you can see from the pictures below. Thanks to Ms. Marianne who took them through the centers and to all the parents that donated supplies for our fun filled day. Keep on rocking first grade...
