What a week!!!
1. Started off with a wonderful blogger meet up in Northern Ohio at Gervasi Winery.
Christina DeCarbo from Second Grade Sugar and Spice organized it all!
The rest of us were...
Amanda Nickerson from One Extra Degree
Sarah from Permanently Primary
Lisa from Fourth and Ten
Amelia from Where the Wild Things Learn
Amanda from A Very Curious Class
2. Starting our memory books....
We started this week. We still have two weeks left, but I figured if the kids did 1 or 2 pages a day that would be better than all in one week.
I am mixing two products in one for my memory books.
I am using my writing sheets from my K-5 Memory Book and interactive pieces from my Flip Book Memory Book.
3. Balloon Rewards!!
Last year, I posted about doing balloon rewards and my second graders fell in love.
I HAD to do it with my first graders, too!
4. Teacher Organizing Binders
I cannot wait to get these printed out and start organizing.
I made 3 different sets so far!
Here is the polka dot set....
And the black and white set....
And lastly, the chevron and chalkboard set...
5. And for my final Five for Friday post....
Happy Survival, teachers.
I have 7 days left with kids, then 4 training days after that...
That equals 12 days until my summer vacation (which actually is interrupted by 2 weeks of summer gifted/talented camp teaching) AH!!!
I'm linking with the lovely Doodle Bugs for her weekly link-up.
