    Grandparent's Day

    I had Grandparent's Day in my classroom a few weeks ago. It was a huge success! The kids loved it and so did the grandparents. We made about 9 stations for the grandparents kids to rotate through. The stations were: cupcake decorating, braclet making, planting rye grass in a cup and making a plant head, clay- team building= making a bridge together out of clay, American Flag activity, read a book together, decorate a bookmark, and interview grandparent and child. The students had a "Grandparent's Day Passport" around their necks. As they went to the station they would cross it off on their passport. We originally told the children and grandparent when to rotate stations, but it went so smooth that next year I will let them rotate as they finish a station. I told the children that only 3 children could be at each station. We then explained the directions to the children and grandparents. At each station we had typed out instructions using a lot of details, so the grandparents would know just what to do. We also had our local newspaper come and they wrote an article on it. I know the paper is online, but I don't know if the articel is still on or not. The newspaper is Destin Log. I don't know what the site address is, but is probably destinlog.com. After our station time we went outside to our butterfly garden and had a picnic lunch. We had a lot of positive comments from the grandparents. It was great, I plan to do this every year.
