We had our 50th day of Kindergarten last week!!!! Gosh, Golly Gee!!! I can't believe we made it to 50!!!;)
So, I'm going to share some of the things that I did with my Kinders to celebrate the 50th day! It was so much fun!!!!! Let me just say that none of these activities are my original ideas!!!! I just took lots of ideas from everyone else and made them my own;) I'll post all of the links that the original ideas came from:)
I of course originally found this idea from the ALWAYS fabulous Deanna Jump!!!! Here's her post about the 50th day! She has a little FREE 50th day pack in her TPT store!! Click here to check it out! Please be sure to leave her some positive feedback because I just know you're going to ♥ this darling little pack!;)
We always start our day off with a "good morning page" that the kiddos work on while we do lunch/attendance, etc. So, here's a little patterning sheet that I made for their morning work:) Click on the picture to get your free copy:)Click here to visit her blog and grab this adorable download!! Your kinders will love it!!;)
Kim Adsit's Christopher Columbus pack!!! When I saw it in the pack, I immediately knew I was going to save it for the 50th day!;) Although, it's perfect for Columbus Day too:)
So, anyway-for snack time-we had Coke floats!!! Kim's idea is so fun and adorable!!! Have your kiddos predict whether the icecream will sink or float!;) Here's part of the graph from Kim's pack:
I also made this little response sheet. You can download it by clicking on the picture below:
Mmmmmm! Coke Floats!
We had a bubble blowing contest like Deanna suggested in her 50th day pack!!! It was sooooo much fun! The kids LOVED it and were so excited about the bubbles! I'm not supposed to show shots of my kinders' faces:( So, I can't show you their bubble pics...but here's one of Mrs. Jahnke--She helped out in our class that day!;)Mrs. Lee's post!
They made their picture like this if they could blow a bubble:
After our then and now sort, the kids were REALLY curious about records:) So, we talked about them and I showed them a REAL record (A GIANT CD-as the kids called it:)
We made these records (Deanna Jump idea:)
And, I loved this idea from The Alphabet Garden!!! AND I just happened to have the same Juke Box that she used!!!!;) Yay!! So, all the kiddos got their picture taken in front of it with a real record!
We also had a sock hop and learned the Mashed Potato, The Twist and The Hand Jive!!!!
Here they are doing the hand jive:
Here's one thing that I made-but we didn't have time for it:( This was also NOT my idea:) I saw the idea on Growing Kinders and whipped one up to use! I think the kiddos would have lots of fun playing this race to 50 game!!...maybe next year:) Click on the pic to get your copy:)
Look at my twin!!;) We were both Pink Ladies:) So Fun!
