50s Fun

Oh my goodness! Yesterday was our 50th day of school and we celebrated 1950s style. So much fun! We even dressed like they did in the 50s! We counted to 50 by 1s, 2s, 5s, and 10s. We listed numbers greater than 50 and less than 50. My sweet teammate, Miss Martinez, made a PowerPoint to show the kids pictures of clothes and toys. We compared and contrasted how people lived in the 1950s to how we live today. The kids were shocked they didn't have cell phones, or color TV, or Wii! Here are a few pics of our wild and crazy, but educational day! ;-)

After we discussed the differences from the 50s to today, the students wrote a few sentences about what they learned! Super cute, huh?

After lunch, we enjoyed root beer floats! It was YUMMY!  Then, we graphed how many students liked their treat, and how many did not! Ice cream outside on a beautiful day? What's not to love?



In the afternoon, we had a sock hop! The kids loved dancing to 50s music!  We also showed clips of I Love Lucy so they could see what TV shows looked like in the 50s!
Just an FYI for teacher friends, I purchased Cara Carroll's unit: Cruisin’ Through the 50 First Days of School”. All of our activities came from her unit.  I would highly recommend it!
