Happy 50th Day of School!

We finally celebrated our 50th day of school, and I am beyond thrilled that we have been in person for all 50 days! I had a really fun time decorating the room yesterday after the students left for the day. Take a peek!

I loved watching the students excitedly come into the classroom this morning. There were so many squeals of joy and “oooohhh’s!” I was grateful that the students trickled in slowly, so I was able to take individual photos of each cool cat with their masks off.


During one of our activity stations this morning, students went outside and learned how to blow a bubblegum bubble.

It was hard work! Look at our class results:

Students also learned how to make a rootbeer float. I love this craftivity!

Students practiced sequencing the three steps, using the words first, next, last.

Then we had to enjoy our own rootbeer floats! (Not to worry, parents! I made the floats with two small scoops of ice cream!)

We also took time to write about wanting fifty of something. There were some really creative ideas!

From learning how to Hand Jive, to hula hooping, to learning about the differences between life in the 1950’s and today, I’d say we had a really successful and FUN 50th day of school!


Happy 50th Day!!


It’s that special day already! Time to celebrate 50 days of kindergarten! We started the day dressed up as Greasers and Pink Ladies and headed to the backyard for a photo shoot with a 1955 Chevy Bel Air.





Then it was time for Friday Fun! In the kitchen, students made ice cream to be used in our banana splits after the Sock Hop this afternoon.



It took a lot of shaking and dancing to make this special treat! (Notice the oven mitts…..those bags of ice and salt were COLD!)


Students played the classic 1950’s games of Jacks and Pick Up Sticks. They also wrote about an item of which they wish they had 50…

Throughout the day I had 50’s music playing in the background.  Look what happened as we were transitioning from Friday Fun centers to Bat Notebooks:

What I love most about this video is that this little dance party was completely spontaneous! So sweet!

We ended the day with a Sock Hop under the Pavilion where students hula hooped, played with Frisbees, bowled, and created their own Paddle Ball game.





Our fabulous 50th day of school ended with delicious banana splits! Thanks for celebrating with us!
