2 More to Go

As I write this Kelly and I have two days let with our kids.  Tuesday will be our last day of school with our kids and then we have two teacher days of PD.

Here's a glimpse of what has been going on in our classrooms...

Our Fun Day theme was "Jersey Strong" 

One of the SWEETEST yearbook signings from one of my LOVES.

 As one of my end of the year gifts I make my students personalized Wordles using  The Wordles contain classroom themes, memories, events, and then I add in some personalized words or phrases for each kid.  I put them in a frame and wrap them with cellophane, tissue paper, and ribbon.  

Take a look!

  We also held a Reading Buddy Scavenger Hunt outside.  It was such a stressful event because we haven't done it before and we had no idea how we were going to set it up or how it was going to go.  IT WAS A BLAST and the kids had a great time!
Setting up that morning!

Station Number 3: Shoot five basketball hopes!

Station 9: Add a picture to our chalk mural

2 more days to go for these Buddies!

  1. I adore the wordle gifts - a great idea and personalising it for each one WOW!

  2. It is definitely something I love to do. Such a great and personal gift- I'm the one that decides what they say which is the best! The kids love reading them and always point out the special things that I wrote just for them.

    It's a great idea.
