So while I was gone my sweet little kiddos celebrated the 50th day of school (Wow where did the time go?). We do it up right at our school- dressing up in poodle skirts and rolled jeans, playing with 1950s toys, having coke floats, having a sock hop. In the off chance you haven't reached the 50th day yet I'd thought I would pass along some ideas for 50s day fun. So first up are some pictures from some past fifties days! I LOVE this day and so do the kids!

Last but not least is a list of fifties day activities (you can download a hard copy in google docs). This year my class and two others switches classrooms to do separate activities. In my class the kids played with toys from the 1950s (play dough, Candy Land, Cooties, Jacks, Match Box Cars, View Masters), in another class they played outside games (hula hoops, jump ropes, hopscotch, kickball), and in the final class they had a sock hop and root beer floats! Everyone had a blast! In past years we did all the activities just in our classroom. Both ways work and are a lot of fun.
