I just checked the calendar and guess what. FIVE more WEEKS of school!! F-I-V-E! Now, I love my job, but when it’s this close to the end of the year, and thoughts of lazy days and late summer nights start to invade my thoughts, I almost get giddy!
I also really like that this time of year allows for some deviation from the norm in the classroom and some of those rigid testing timelines become more relaxed.
Today I have an activity for you from one of my very favorite end of the year read alouds, Last Day Blues by Julie Danneberg, the same author of First Day Jitters (which I will be reading in what seems like the blink of an eye!)
