MIX IT UP Day

MIX IT UP Day

Today was Mix It Up day!  Each class was given matching animal pictures and students were given an animal and asked to find another student with a match.   At lunch today, students were asked to sit next to their animal match student and meet them and talk with them.  I had popsicle sticks with conversation questions on them for students to ask each other.  I was also in the cafeteria from 10:30-1:00 playing music and asking students to ask his/her partner a question on the popsicle stick like “What is your favorite food?” , “If you had 3 wishes, what would you wish for?”  “What would you do with $100?” and more fun questions like that.  Below is a picture of the matching animals and conversation popsicle sticks.  Ask your child how they enjoyed Mix It Up Day. 🙂
