Every year I look forward to the 50th day of school. 9 years ago my Aunt Alice made a pink poodle skirt and I bought a pair of saddle shoes so every year around this time I get to go to the back of my closet and pull those gems out. I love counting those days with the kids and Zero the Hero, then the BIG day arrives. We talk about clothes, cars, and other things from the past and now. The wheels start turning for parents and how to dress them up. By the picture below you will see they did not disappoint.
My fabulous 50s firsties.
We rotate through the other 1st grade classrooms for a variety of activities. Here we are getting ready for some root beer floats and we got to watch the chocolate factory episode of I Love Lucy. Can you believe these kids hadn't ever seen a black & white TV show. We laughed and laughed.
Get ready for some drag racing! Here we used our breathing power to race those cars. Can we get a cheer for these kids?!?
Some of us really get into our work right? Who could blame him he was having a ball!
Who remembers coloring contests? These kids are getting their creations ready for the judge!
What 50s day wouldn't be complete without a hula hoop contest?
The firsties had to come up with their favorite parts to an amazing day and we used ChatterPix to tell you all about it. Watch and see all the fun we had main it to the 50s day of school.
This is our crew and they are amazing!
