Holy Guacamole!!

Holy guacamole! Usually I don’t like to post back to back BUT I am a teeny bit excited.  I have been in Spring cleaning mode at school and home. I have been organizing and purging like crazy. It’s as if May is taunting me. Sleep is laughing at me. Dun dun dunnnnnn! Haha!

I don’t know about you but I chase my tail the last grading period. I don’t know if I am coming or going. I don’t know if I am scratching my watch or winding my butt! (Know that movie quote?!)

So, in an effort to get prepared, I started created resources over Spring Break for the end of the year. I am so happy with how they turned out. Note to say SO way to much Crystal.

Moving on, I wanted to show you what I have had up my sleeve. First, I have an alphabet review. You could actually use it all year, but this is my plan. Almost all of my students know their letters and sounds by now but I like to do an end of year review. I can use this as morning work, homework, or just a worksheet in a word work tub. It’s just another way for me to continue to monitor their progress and assure that they have retained each letter and sound. You can see this set by clicking here or the picture.  

Next, knowing that my life is scheduled to be a hot mess the last several weeks of school (this year I have decided to schedule’s inevitable so this is my way of embracing hotmessness that is…yes making up words all over the place), I created a JustClick & Print Set for the last six weeks of school. Really, it’s 96 pages so I am sure you could use for as long as you need to. Again, I am thinking morning work, homework, word work centers, etc. Simple. Easy. No color printing required. Easy. Did I mention easy? Haha! Click here to see this set or the picture below. :)

Last is my favorite. Each summer I send home a Summer Workbook for my students and a journal.  I don’t know if all of them complete the work but I *hope* they do.  The last day of school, I give them a bag. In that bag, they have a summer journal, summer work book, crayons, paper, pencils, play dough, playing cards (because we play card games every day), two dice (for dice games), a dice game or two, their last bundle of sight word books they have made and put in their book baskets and their end of year DVD. Their summer work book will consists of a calendar of very simple educational tasks that can be done at home each day. I will also include some of the worksheets from my Easy Peasy Unit (above) of skills that child needs to work on, Sunny Sight Word  & Sunny CVC Word Lists for them to read each week (five lists of each)and a summer journal. I know in the past, my students have LOVED going home with so much FUN stuff to do. You can see my Summer Lovin’ set by clicking HERE or the picture below.

Now, this is A LOT. I get that. So, I have bundled them with a 20% discount on the set. The bundle is 194 pages. Holy Guacamole! You can see that here or click this next picture.

I can’t believe I am actually starting to plan for the end of the year. This year has flown by WAY too fast. I really have loved every minute of it.  Some years, have more stock in wine but this year, not so much.  I am looking forward to the summer with my kids and at conferences (hopefully with YOU) but I’m going to totally miss this group and plan on spending the rest of the year just enjoying our little class family and the neat little people God has entrusted me with this year.

Now, for real and truly, I am participating in that 5K tomorrow tonight. It’s a neon race. It’s similar to the color run but instead of spraying you with paint, they spray you with glow in the dark stuff. I feel like this is perfect for my first 5k simply because it is at NIGHT. No one needs to see too much fluff jiggle. I did buy a neon tutu. When I say neon, I mean I am ready to direct some traffic. I love the whole dress up for fun idea but honestly I bought it just in case I don’t make it, people will see my laying in the road and know to step over me. I’m counting on that tutu to save my life tomorrow! Thanks for any prayers and well wishes. I will be back to share pictures of my weekend later.
