FINALLY! I am more than relieved that the testing sessions are over. Certainly, so are my students! They worked their tails off for 7 days and certainly earned some down time, Our principal had emailed us that we should take some time to reward the kids, so that we did!
Before our state testing we did a kick off. We took the afternoon to pump our kids up. We paired review with active games and the kids LOVED it!! Unfortunately I did not get any pictures of that.
I saw on Instagram this awesome carnival themed test prep from Cooties and Cuties. Read about it on All About 3rd Grade. I told my grade partner that I would love to do a Carnival Themed Kick Off next year.
So once this message from my principal came about I knew instantly I wanted to do a mini carnival for my kids.
I purchased the giant inflatables from Target (dice, ring toss, and bowling). I hit up Amazon for some water guns, ping pong balls, and photo props. The rest of the games I had in my house, bean bag toss and parachute.
Overall it was a huge hit! I'd love to know if you have done a carnival theme before. Next year I would like to go bigger! Or at least have more than a week to prepare. :)
Roll and Run
I ordered the props off of Amazon.
