Keeping Them Engaged and Busy To The END!

I don't know about you but I am in the final countdown. We have 8 days left and my firsties are high as kites! 
With all the dance practices, assemblies, parties, rainy weather, and activities it's hard to keep them in control. But a few of my packets have been lifesavers in keeping my kiddos engaged and busy.
There's no way my kids want to learn something new so we are reviewing and staying strong to the end but in a fun way.
 My kids LOVE to do a Find a Friend. It gets them up and moving and they get to talk to their friends while reviewing important skills.
 Anything that involves Do-A-Dot markers is a HUGE hit in my class.
 Another favorite is playing Tic-Tac-Toe. Again playing with a friend is the best!
Flip Flaps have been a favorite all year and the fast finishers even play a little game with it.
 We've been doing some reviewing with SCOOT! Another fun activity to get them up and moving while reviewing.
My kiddos love doing these a second time because they are more confident and think they are really smart because now it's 'easy'!
You can find these at my Teacher Shops. Click my side bar for a link to my TeacherPayTeacher  or Teacher Notebook shop.

I'm trying to enjoy every minutes with my little ones. All too soon it will be time to say good-bye and then I'll miss them terribly.

Happy End-of-the-Year Teaching!

Teacher Appreciation and a SALE!

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Teachers!
Last week we were spoiled, pampered, loved, and appreciated by our wonderful PTA, parents, and students.

We were treated like Rock Stars!
We had lunch brought in every day, a dirty drink bar all week, flowers, candy, gift cards, presents, classroom supplies, and one PTA dad made everyone smoothies. 
What more could a teacher ask for?
