It's the End of the Year--- and We Know It!

Wow! Time surely goes by fast! I have not been much of a blogger this year. My class and family life just took a toll on me this year! Sometimes you just have a take a step back and take care of what is most important to you! I hope to be back more next year and put more life into my blog and share with you the ideas that I have! The pictures are all there on my phone and the posts are written in my head---- BUT! They never made it to the blog! *sigh* There's always this summer and next year! 

Hope you all are soon coming close to the end! This is my last week of school. We have been so busy with end of the year performances. My 2nd grader had a performance and my little kinder did, too! Both were amazing and I am so glad that we were there to watch it! 

There's my Gabriel (the short asian one! lol!) in the front! 

Getting the "Smarties" Award for knowing fun little facts! It will win him big in Jeopardy one day! 

My Aidan after his ocean performance! His class was all hermit crabs! They were so cute. We heard ocean songs NON-STOP for weeks. We are still hearing them! 

I am also busy cleaning out and packing up my classroom. I know we all do this but this is a dreaded task for me because I am slow. It takes me forever to pack it up. I have to admit that I also putz around and am not organized in my packing. You will often find little piles of where I've been. I partially have ADD and I like to re-organize as I go. That could have something to do with my slowness. Plus, my room is being used for summer school so I am being extra careful in my pack-up so I remember where I place things. 

In my pack up, I found I had so many notebooks! I mean, tons of them that I didn't use! Every year I give my students a notebook over the summer to write so they don't slide over the summer because as we all know the summer slide is for real! Yet, I wasn't really giving them or their parents too much guidance. 

I created this cute little pack for all those journals! 

You can click {HERE} to check them out! 

I wanted them to be fun, easy, and low prep! Something kids and parents could do! 

I have to laugh! My little one's prompt was about chores. He wrote, "I like to feed my cat. I do not like to scoop cat litter." Hahaha!

I hope to get these printed and back from copy center by Tuesday so I can send them home in their beach buckets. I also send home a summer calendar as well as helpful links and logins to the various programs our county has purchased for us. 

Hope you all have a great week! It's almost the end of the year and we ALL know it! :-)
