Planning a Party is filled with many “teachable moments”: the math of finance & measurement; the science of food prep; the reading & writing of invites, how-to directions & idea research; the social studies of games, activities & cooperation as well as including art, music, & FUN!!!!
When our classroom did not have a “Room Parent”, we planned & organized our class parties & celebrations together, using our math, science/nutrition, reading, writing & social studies skills.
These are the 12 Party ideas included:
- Snow & Hot Cocoa
- Heart-Made Valentines
- Popcorn & A Movie
- Art Show
- Picnic at the Park
- Books & Toys Swap
- Backyard Campout
- Back-To-School Bash
- Halloween Party
- Make-A-Pizza Party
- Make & Take Cookie Box Party
Encourage your Party Planners to brainstorm & create other celebrations, such as a specific Book Party including a thematic food, craft, hats, etc. Invite another class to join in the fun (with handwritten invites, of course).
- Construction Instructions for each of the 12 parties
- Over 65 website references for food & activity ideas
- Over 120 ready-to-use graphic images including 12 party invitations
There are multiple ways to use these activities in your classroom:
- Numerous, fill-in writing templates can be part of a Writing Center, seasonally and/or throughout the course of the year.
- Graphic images can be used to engage creative writing and/or serve as covers for class books.
- Party ideas can be used as classroom and/or campus fundraisers.
- Party Planner worksheet can be a Math Center activity.
- Cooking Parties are multi-curricular.
- Some parties can be planned as special classroom and/or grade-level events.
- Each party can be used as a sequential story.
An interactive “party environment” can make work more engaging, meaningful, and, therefore, memorable.
Make sure to include pictures to share in your classroom and/or school newsletter. Compile memories into a variety of class books, such as recipes, crafts, decorations, etc.
This "Party" Project includes successes from previous class celebrations. I can tell you these interactive ideas will engage your students' Literacy skills effectively.
I would love to hear from you!
