End of the Year Pictures :)

Oh, how I am going to miss these sweet kiddos! Have an AMAZING summer, everyone!

End of Year Candy Awards! The kiddos LOVED this!

We made signs for the Senior Walk! This was soo sweet!


The kiddos asked if we could make snow one more time before they went to first grade. So, naturally, I agreed to do it on the last day of school! 🙂

One of my sweethearts made me a last day of school shirt, so we took a cute picture outside!


Hey Everyone!

I can not believe there are only 8 days of school left! This year has flown by so quickly! I guess time flies when you are having fun! Thank you all for the support you have shown our classroom this year! I am forever grateful for all of you!


*Monday is bring a board game day (think Candy Land, Checkers, KerPlunk, Sorry, Connect Four, etc..)! Please put your child’s name on the game they plan to bring! Your child will be in charge of teaching their classmates how to play their game, so make sure it is one they are familiar with!

*We will be headed to the park on Tuesday! Please remember to send your child with two disposable, plastic water bottles with their name on them. If your child is bringing their own lunch, please do not pack items that need to be refrigerated!

We will only have enough room in the ice chest for drinks. You are more than welcome to meet us there! The kiddos are welcome to bring balls, jump ropes, bubbles, sidewalk chalk etc. We are looking forward to a FANTASTIC time!

*On Wednesday, we will have an afternoon movie and popcorn. If you are able to donate any popcorn or snacks we would appreciate it!

I am going to soak up this last week and a half with my precious kinderpillars. Too soon they will be flying out of my classroom into first grade :(…. Thank you for sharing your precious jewels with me this year! We have made unforgettable memories!

Pictures :)

Measuring our Feet!

Creating quantities with tally marks aka pretzels!

more tally mark fun using geoboards

What does not belong? The students were shown 4 pictures on each slide. Then, they had to decide which picture did not belong (there were multiple correct answers) and justify why! This proved to be very engaging and challenged all of us!

Writing time!

word work with poetry

Outside FUN!
