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
  • Sleepover
  • 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!
