Just to be clear, learning and fun can go hand in hand. We worked on counting to 50 by 10's. We made "pearl" necklaces with 50 beads and key chains with 50 beads. We wrote 50 words and the numbers to 50. We measured and drew 50 inch pictures to color. We had a bubblegum blowing contest and had floats for snack. The floats were also a nice follow up to our study of buoyancy from Thursday...teehee.
When shown a record and asked what it was, they chorused confidently that it was a CD! What? A 12" CD?!?!?!?! Mrs. Bayles had to teach them all about the ancient technology of record players.
Thanks to Kris N., we had this cool little one to show them and demonstrate with. Hers when she was a little girl, way back in the "old" days! teehee
Next, was the sock hop and it was a hoot. They loved taking their shoes off and for the whole first song all they did was hop...in their socks! Oh, so that's why it's called a "sock hop". Then we taught them to do the twist and the hand jive. They played their own guitars for one of the songs.
But, they didn't have any more fun than their teachers!
The day went SO fast. Several of the kids said how much they looked forward to Fun Friday's. Several of the parents who dropped their kids off said how much their kids enjoy Fun Fridays and I realized that I don't think I could get through a week without our Fun on Fridays!
Rock and Roll is here to stay!
