Diary of a Not So Wimpy Teacher: Valentine's Day Rockin' Sock Hop!

Valentine's Day Rockin' Sock Hop!

I have been hard at work today preparing for my class Valentine's Day Sock Hop this week! I thought I had  it all planned, and then yesterday I got crazy and decided that I needed 50's themed math and literacy centers to get the kids pumped up for the party on Thursday. Luckily, I found some great resources on TpT!

I found a bundle that has great review activities for literacy, writing and math! We'll be doing Boogie Woogie Addition, Doo Wop Subtraction, Smokin' Synonyms and much more! Check it out HERE.

After we do these fun centers, we will be ready for the big party! I have 4 stations planned: a soda shoppe (with floats), a match-box car race, hula hooping and dancing to 50's music. I got the ideas, signs and even awards for winners from THIS freebie!

Today I picked up some fun decorations. Now I can't wait to see how cute my kiddos look in rolled up jeans, slicked back hair, poodle skirts and pony tails!

My class will also be working on a Valentine's themed poetry unit during Writer's Workshop this week. On Monday, we will be learning about metaphors. They will be making a "Love is..." metaphor book to give to their family. Check out THIS cute freebie that I am using. On Tuesday we will be working on Diamante poems and on Wednesday we will be writing "I love you more than..." poems. I love the planners and publishing papers in THIS kit.

It's going to be a fun week! I'll post soon about my President's Day plans!
