You may wish to make it the 50th day of school in the year beginning with January 1st. You may wish to count just school days or you may wish to count weekends and holidays as well.
This makes it a very flexible day of celebration! These 50th day of school first grade activities will use children's natural love of large numbers to incorporate subjects across the curriculum. Preparations for 50th Day About a week before the day you have chosen as the 50th day, gather the students together and share a counting book.
Count to 50 by 1's, 2's, 5's, and 10's. Ask students what they know about the number Then tell them that you are all going to share a very special day to celebrate the number 50, including the years in the 's. Send home a note to explain to parents about the day and ask if the children may come to school dressed in '50's style clothes.
Suggestions for clothing may include jeans rolled up at the ankles and T-shirts for the boys and skirts for the girls, where you could provide poodle shapes cut from felt to pin on them. Also ask if the children may bring to school a collection of 50 objects.
Obtain some music from the 50's so that it can be played in your classroom on the special day. Make a very large number 50 out of cardboard and cut out the middle of the zero. Activities for the 50th Day Tape the large number 50 across the classroom doorway and invite your students to step through the zero.
Form a circle and have a look at everyone's 50's style clothes. For students who could not find anything suitable have on hand extra felt poodle shapes for the girls to pin on their sweaters or shirts, and maybe some brightly colored socks for the boys to put on over their own socks.
Gather together and read a book about Illustrated by Michael Martchenko. Invite each child who has brought in a collection to show and tell about it and then display the collections on a table in the classroom or in the hall outside the door. During this time, stop every so often and play some music from the 50's and invite the students to dance on the spot or around the room.
Throughout the day, you could serve celery pieces stuffed with cream cheese, or individual chocolate cakes — this was popular food served at parties in the 50's.
