We were rockin' and rollin' all day today since it was the 50th day of school. We started the day by dancing to Barbara Ann from Just Dance Kids (via Youtube) and got a real sense of what 50's music was like. What a warm up for learning!
After that, we moved on to making a favorite after school treat form the 50's...root beer floats. YUM! This was research of course so we could write our How To pieces titled....How To Make a Root Beer Float. We wrote it together on chart paper, then everyone made their own piece. Check them out in the hallway at conferences.
Our Math work revolved around the number 50 too. Can't wait for day 100!!!!!
