We worked very hard this week to earn our Beach Day celebration. Our goal was to fill up all sections of the beach ball and we did it by Thursday morning. Meaning that we earned our Beach Party Celebration for Friday!
When the students came in on Friday they got to pick a lei from our classroom palm tree. We started the day by playing math with a beach ball. First they had to add or subtract the numbers that their fingers landed on when the ball was passed to them. Then we played another round and whatever their fingers landed on they had to create a number with those two numbers. For example if they landed on a 2 or 4 they could make 24 or 42 and then say if the number was odd or even.
We also had two birthday celebrations (Mason and Ashlyn) and two birthday treats to enjoy at our tables and on our towels!
Throughout the day we also had a relay using beach clothes such as goggles, flip flops, hats, etc. It was 15 minutes of excitement, cheering and fun! In the end we decided it was a tie between the two teams.
Lastly we ended our day outside enjoying the sunshine! We read to self and to each other for a ten minutes and then had kid time outside!
Overall it was a very packed and fun filled day! We hope you enjoy the Smilebox!
