Valentine's Day Sock Hop {Freebie}

Last year, for Valentine's Day, Holly came up with the idea of a Valentine's Day Sock Hop.  It was so much fun!  We broke out the scarves and poodle skirts and stepped back in time to the 50s!  I made a FREE packet for you all if you want to have a sock hop this year.  It has posters for each station and certificates.  Click the pics below to download them for FREE at my TPT store








We had four different stations.  You will definitely need some parent volunteers to help you with this.

The first was the Soda Shop.  We served heart shaped pizza and made floats.  They could choose from root beer or coke floats.  You could do a "How To Make a Float" writing activity before the sock hop.  Lots of kids have never had a float before, amazingly!



We also had a bubble gum blowing contest.  You will definitely need to be there to teach them how to blow a bubble.  So many of ours didn't  know how. 


There was a matchbox car race.  We had them bring in their own matchbox cars, but we had some extras.  We have ramps in our hallways, so we had the races there.



And finally, we had the Sock Hop station!  We just let them dance their hearts out to 50s music.



Here they are decorating their Valentine bags:



So go to my TPT store if you want to download the FREE posters and certificates for your very own sock hop.  {Sorry my pictures aren't very good.  I need a new camera!} 

I also just uploaded a Super -er, -ir, and -ur Word Work Activity packet if you are working on bossy r.




Have a great weekend!

  4. Thanks for the sock hop freebie! :) When I taught third grade, we studied the 1950s and had a sock hop at the end of the unit and loved it. What a great idea for Valentine's Day!

  9. Love this! Question, in your rotations do you have the whole class move to the stations or do you divide them up?

  11. It is that time of the year when love in all its forms and types is celebrated. Yes, it is Valentine’s Week, starting from February 7 to February 14. Especially around this time, happily-in-love couples make the time and efforts to make their loved ones feel special. They mark the day by exchanging gifts and spending quality time with each other. Building up the hype of Valentine’s Day are the seven days that come before — Rose Day, Propose Day, Chocolate Day, Teddy Day, Promise Day, Kiss Day, Hug Day — in that order before the big V-Day comes a-calling.
