Last week, I posted how our kindergarten class made leis to celebrate our school’s “Beach Day”. Today, we used those leis as it was “Beach Day”!
We wore our leis all day. Then, during the last 60 minutes of the day, our entire school met in the gym to play Beach Blanket Bingo. Students were asked to bring a beach towel to use as their blanket. Our class was paired with an older class so that each kindergarten student had a helper for the game to recognize the numbers and follow the rules. That also left myself and my teaching partner free to handle any issues that may have risen (bathroom breaks, etc). Our principal, as well as an EA who had organized the event, sat on the stage and called the numbers.
Our class got recognition of our festive necklaces, which made the kindergarten children smile with pride!
