We have almost made it to the end of this first grade year- it cannot come soon enough!! We are trying to have fun in first grade for the last couple of days. This afternoon we did a cute little art project that they loved and it helped me get rid of a few things.
I keep those big wooden blocks for rainy days (they love building big towers and letting them crash down...loud but fun). I have tons of them and some are so big I don't have any place to store them so they have been in the trunk of my car for a while (don't ask my husband how long...he could go on forever!!) So I finally got them out of the car today and decided to make a cute little momento out of them.
On each block I wrote "First grade is the building block to my education!" Then I put each students name and the date. When they came back in the room they were so excited to color on these pieces of wood. Hey, whatever works!! Anyway here are a few of them. I can't wait to do this again next year and maybe put a little more thought into it and use paint or something!
Anyway, I hope everyone out there in blog teaching world is a having a calm end of the year. It is almost over! Yay for summer!!
