Good News...... After next Wednesday I only have two more days of school left!
Bad News....First, I have to survive until then. :)
SERIOUSLY! What makes the last two weeks of school so tough.
The kids start acting all kinds of crazy and us teachers are just plain TIRED!!!
I think that this is God's way of helping us send those little ones off without it crippling us with sadness. Think about it.... we've spent 180 days with these little people. They've hugged us 1,000 times, told us they loved us and that we are the BEST Teacher EVER! We've watched them blossom into readers, writers and mathematicians. :) After all the time that we've spent with them, it should be devastating to send them on to someone else to love and nurture. BUT.... WHAM! The last two weeks of school are so CUH-RAZY we are more than happy to wave goodbye on the last day of school.
Thank you, God for allowing me to teach these little sweeties and thank you God for summer.
So....The last day of school we are having our Pirates and Parents picnic. It is an Open House of sorts, and we decorate the room to showcase our learning. Here are a few pictures from last year. I will add the pictures from this year once we get the room decorated.
These are our pirate glyphs.
Pirate Science Experiment.
I am working on a recording sheet and directions for this. I will add it here as a free download this weekend.
Pirate cupcakes! ARRRRR!
Our crabs and crab nonfiction writing.
Rub a Dub Sub (from my Ocean unit)
Pout-Pout fish directed drawing and text to self connections.
Most of the ideas and activities above come from these units.
