Let Summer Vacation Begin!!!

Summer break is here!!!! Yesterday was the kiddos last day, I think the word summer break has never sounded so good! Today we had a PD/Workday, and we have to come back Tuesday and Wednesday of next week, and then we're done! Just in time for my last two classes to begin. I don't have any trips planned, but I'm thinking that I may need a mini one pretty soon. For right now, I'm off to enjoy the Memorial Day weekend!!

Check back often, as I'll be sure to keep you updated with any new projects I'm sure to start this summer!

Talk to you later!

Pete the Cat and the Last Days of School!!

Whew! It has been a whirlwind weekend and week!  I had a great time this weekend at my best friend's wedding, it was totally awesome, but I am still tired!!! I almost feel like I got married!! 

Ahhh!!!! Back to a lot of things to do this week! I've had meetings each day, not to mention my closing of school packet to complete! It seems like everything is competing for my attention, not to mention all of the students that still keep coming to school! I mean, the last day for kiddos is Thursday, and they have been coming  like clockwork!

Well, today was my first day of reading Pete the Cat EVER to my class! I can't believe what I have been missing! I'm ready to go and buy ALL of them now! My kids picked it up pretty quickly, and we had to listen to it 4 times, and then we have to read it 1 more time and we sang the song ourselves. You should have seen the look on their face when we talked about the cause and effect of Pete's shoes changing colors. I laughed and reminded them that we were in school, and we were here to learn! Haha!

I used a sheet from First Grade Blue Skies Pete the Cat packet, and my kiddos loved it! I just wished I'd known about him a lot earlier in the year! But I'll be ready next year!


Mother's Day

Even though I am tired and stressed by the end of the school year, I am really proud of my kinders! They have really grown, and as they worked on their mother's day project today, I just sat and observed them. I was amazed at how they've transformed into these little almost 1st graders!

Today we reviewed for our end of the year reading and math tests that we will do next week. This afternoon we worked on mother's day presents, from the First Grade Blue Skies pack, and we made the ewe! My kids really loved creating this for their moms.
