50's Day in Kindergarten at Spanish Oaks

Submitted by sherri.peterson on

We had a great time in Kindergarten celebrating our 50th day of school.  Everybody looked great dressed up in 50's style clothing. We did many counting activities, learned about some games, toys and music from the era, had root beer floats and ended the day doing a dance party.  Students learned The Twist, the Hand Jive and the Dishrag. We have loved all 50 days of school so far, and can't wait to learn more!
