Dear Grade 1 Parents,
We want to make you aware of an upcoming special day for the grade ones. On Tuesday November 15th, we will be celebrating the 50th day of school. We are going ‘back in time’ to the 1950’s to help celebrate that day! We will be
doing some fun activities within our classrooms. These activities will include,
using a 50’s grid to find number patterns, counting out 50 fruit loops to make a necklace, using a bar graph to record our favourite activities, a sock hop, teaching the kids some dance moves from the 50’s and enjoying music from that decade. Afterwards, the students will get to cool-off with a float. It is
going to be a lot of fun!
To make it feel more authentic, we are asking for your help by having the students “dress” 50’s style. Some ideas are: bobby socks, long skirts and pony tails tied with ribbons for the girls. For the boys: white t-shirts, jeans rolled up and slicked hair. Have fun being creative with this, but please don’t feel like you need to buy anything new!
We are really looking forward to this (you’ll see us in our poodle skirts too!) Let us know if you have any questions.
