In the classroom, I love any chance to have a themed party! It is such a fun way to take a break from the ordinary school routine, shake things up, and have a little fun with my students. It also gives them something to look forward to! You have all the usual holidays like Christmas and Halloween, but we also like to celebrate the 50th day of school!
This is an exciting way to celebrate the number 50 on our 50th day of school together. So what kind of things do you do to celebrate the number 50? Celebrate 1950’s style!
Here are some fun ways to have 1950’s style celebration in your classroom
- Have a dress up day. Bring on the poodle skirts and leather jackets!
- Have a good old fashioned sock hop with lots of dancing
- Play some 50’s music in your classroom (from a jukebox if you have one!)
- Make some root beer floats
- Do themed activities in your lessons
- Have a photo booth (with props from the resource below!)
I created some fun 50th Day Of School Celebration activities for you to use in your classroom!
In this resource you’ll get fun ideas and printables to engage your kindergarten or 1st grade students in meaningful ways with the number 50 on the 50th day of school or during a full week of centers! It incorporates literacy, math, and science activities. Each activity is about 20 to 40 minutes long.
