FABULOUS 50th Day of School!

Friday was our FABULOUS 50th day of school... and we celebrated in 1950's style!  Of course, we dressed up in our best 50's gear and danced whenever we had a chance.  

 Some of the kids' favorites were:
  • making ice cream floats and sequencing the directions (made with vanilla ice cream and choice of root beer or orange soda)
  • making cotton ball poodles (with 50 cotton balls each!)
  • making our own records (Cut a black 10" square TLC style and either a lt. blue or pink 5" square for the label.  Then we draw concentric circles with a white crayon. Add a photo of the 1950's dressed class on the label... "Our Greatest Hits!").  I love this for our "guys" and "gals" photos!  
  • tasting hamburger sliders
  • doing a past and present sort
  • counting to 50 by 1's and tracing the numbers and tallying too
  • counting to 50 by 5's (and slapping hands with a partner as we count)
  • counting to 50 by 10's (and slapping both hands with a partner as we count)
  • And, of course, chewing bubble gum!
I added a few of these things as FREEBIES on TpT... click here for flyer to send home, tracing to 50, ice cream float sequencing, and a past and present sort.  Hope you can use them (either this year or save for next!)  :o)

OH--this summer I found the most wonderful site (while blog hopping, of course I forget which blog was talking about it... sorry!) for getting parent volunteers or parent donations.  It's called Volunteer Spot and I LOVE it!  In fact, I got all the materials for our 50th day in about 2 days (that's the cotton balls, sliders, ice cream, soda, cups, straws, gum, etc!!!).  My class parents think it's the best also--and even our PTO is using it now.  Check it out!  (and no, I am not getting paid for this endorsement... I just really like it! LOL!!)
