50's Fun {50th Day of School}

10/30/2012
I saw this 50th day of school mini unit on The First Grade Parade last year (after we had already celebrated our 100th day of school) and knew I wanted to do it this year, but totally forgot about it until I was sewing a poodle skirt for Eliana for a 50's dance coming up! Perfect! We cruised through our first 50 days of school, but thought this would be a fun way to slow down a bit and celebrate! 

How to Make a Root Beer Float 

Both kids wrote or narrated directions in three parts and then made a root beer float following their own directions and then made a Do You Like Root Beer Floats graph. {Writing fulfills Sonlights LA 2 Week 10 expository writing Creative Expression assignment, "Time to Explain Yourself." Malachi's assignment was to write a brief explanation paragraph.}

We also played a game called Roll a Record.

What Can You Do in 50 Seconds? 


How many bubbles, twists, bunny hops, hula hoops and more can you do in 50 seconds?! We had fun finding out and recording our results. 

Her first ever "bubble gum." 


We had burgers and fries and root beer floats for dinner and listened to a 50's music station on Pandora. We even jitterbugged in the living room. :) 

Here are a few photos at the dance. . .

Good times. :) But, they do go by fast!
