On November 6th, the first graders celebrated the 50thday of school with a blast to the past to the 1950s! The students were encouraged to dress up in 50s attire, which included poodle skirts, leather jackets, saddle shoes, and jeans. It was a fun day, filled with activities centered around the number 50 and the 1950s era. Some activities we did include making the perfect root beer float (complete with whipped cream and a cherry on top!), learning about popular things in the 1950s (and researching them ourselves!), working with the number 50 in a variety of ways, timing ourselves for 50 seconds doing different activities, and ending the day with a sock hop, complete with popular hits from the 1950s! Learning about the 50s was “no sweat” with all the 1stgrade “cool cats”! Check out some pictures to see our great costumes & special events!
