7... more... days!

We're down to the wire now.  I have 7 more days with my current crop of kiddies, and it's starting to sink in.  I love my class, and I am so sad to see them move on.  At the same time, I am so proud of how well they have done this year, and I am excited to send them on toward future successes! I know I've been practically living under a rock lately, but I am so wrapped up in end-of-the-year paperwork, grades, and trying to come up with SUPER FUN end of the year activities!  (You know, the kinds of activities that are like the exclamation point at the end of a really great year!  They take so much more time, energy and planning than lessons I create during the rest of the year.  Why is that?!)  Strep throat was a minor set-back, but I think I'm back on track to finish up on a high note! Unfortunately, my blog has been seriously neglected lately.  If you're reading this, thanks for sticking with me!

In the process of planning and all that jazz, I created a little Survivor's Guide for my current kiddos to fill out.  I figured that it would be a meaningful way to end this year and begin next year.  So, I'm setting my current students up as mentors and allowing them to share their wisdom with my future class.  I'm hoping that the newbies will appreciate their advice and that it will help calm their first day jitters too!  You can check it out HERE, if you're interested!
