In 8 days, the sweet sweet sound of summer will be here! This year has been amazing! It has definitely flown by, but it has been amazing! I had a great group of kiddos and I really feel they all made so much progress! #proudteacher
This year also marks the last 8 days my oldest baby will attend daycare. He will *officially* be with me next year as he enters Kindergarten! I'm pretty sure I blinked a few times and he literally grew up before my eyes overnight!
Sooooo.... when there are only 8 days left, that means that we have pretty much finished up our regular curriculum and we are reviewing and finding some fun activities to keep us busy and engaged!
I'm usually coming up with random activities on the spot and rushing to create them......which brings this little writing activity!
We used it for sight words and writing complete sentences, however I included a blank sun and blank writing template that will allow you to use vocabulary words, spelling words, challenge words, or any words that have been an important part of your year!
We chose words from our word wall that now includes all of the sight words we have added to it this year. They then had to write a complete sentence for each sight word on their sun!
We have been working VERY hard the past few weeks making sure that all of our sentences look complete with correct capitalization, punctuation, and spacing!

By this time of the year, we are also thinking ahead about our sweet little ones as they head into summer. Many will regress and come back forgetting some very important information!
My newest packet was created to prevent this from happening! Sink or Swim will be the perfect little summer review for your first graders heading into second grade. You can simply make a packet or put together in a folder for a more organized look!
There are 3 calendars included that has a specific activity for each day (excluding weekends!)
Students can complete the activities in order or how they please. Just color in the box when you complete the activity!
Each activity page includes the title that matches with the calendar:

With only 8 days left..... it's like a full moon every day. The kids can smell summer and they are ready!
We are doing our balloon incentives again which of course gets them all kinds of excited!
While I am *very* excited for summer to come, I also won't be having much down time.
I have started back to school on my Master's Degree and I will be doing summer courses!
I am already in a course right now....which is very interesting (I'm actually loving it!) However I have been out of school for 8 years, so getting back into study mode has been challenging. The last time I was in school, I didn't have kids and no full time career!
I'm excited to share next week some of the fun activities planned! (of course after we finish testing!)
Have a great 3-day weekend!
