THEME: The 1950s
Open the Mail
We had a letter from the 1950s which used slang and told us that we are going to be reading two stories that were written in the 1950s and do some 1950s activities!
Story: Harry the Dirty Dog (by Gene Zion)
Activity: Hula Hooping
It was popular in the 1950s!
Activity: The Limbo
Story: Harold and the Purple Crayon (by Crockett Johnson)
Activity: Dance the Hand Jive
The kids learned how to do the hand jive!
Craft: You Be Harold
The kids got a blank piece of paper and a purple crayon – and got to pretend to be Harold! What adventures would they draw?
