School's out for summer! ...Now what?

Teachers- World Champion Tetris Players with real objects...
So the chicks have been relocated to a farm.  I couldn't believe how quickly they grew!  Their feathers came in really fast.  I miss them!  On the upside, our class fish are now hanging out in my living room.

At the end of the year, I have the kiddos bring in white t-shirts for us to paint.  I have a sea sponge set from Micheal's and an assortment of tempera paint.  I borrowed a large set of letter stamps from one of my Kindergarten buddies and had the students stamp out their names.  Last year I was much more controlling and helped each child paint theirs one at a time.  This year.... well it was a different story.  I had two volunteers come in to assist, but we put everything in the kid's hands.  Dry them on high heat to set the paint.   I didn't get a shot of them until the END of the day, and this is after we had been outside with water activities all morning.


I never did follow up with pictures from Mother's Day.  I got really busy with people coming in early and I didn't get a chance to take a picture of the final spread.  It was really pretty though!  Here is what I did capture:

I can't believe this year is over!  It has flown by.

What is on your summer reading list?  I have Barnes and Noble gift certificates, and I need to get some good stuff.  I'm open to teacher books or just fun pool side reads.  :)



Hunger Games Trilogy or the Millenium Trilogy ("The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo", etc) are GREAT reads.
