And That's A Wrap!! {Freebies}

I am so excited that our summer vacation has officially begun!  And what a fun week this was!!  Here is a quick peek of things we did during our last days of school.

Reader's Theater: Three Billy Goats Gruff
I love saving this play for the last week of school.  The students are such great readers by this time and they have lots of fun with these kinds of activities!

Wacky Science
We had a half day of fun science experiments with the students using Jamie Woodward's Wacky Science Unit!  We blew up balloons, made slime, pierced bags with pencils full of water, and much more!

End of Year Posters
My students wanted something to remember their first grade year besides a memory book so I made these for the students to take home and frame if they wanted to.  The pictures were of students holding a frame with a tag that said "Last Day of School".  I took a picture of the class and attached it below.

Student/teacher gifts
I LOVE Pinterest!  Here are a few student gift ideas I found.

I will miss you Beary much!
These are cute tags from "What's the Buzz in First" 

"Owl Miss You!  Hope you have a great summer!"
These were so cute and fun to do!

I'm saving the best for last!
My baby girl graduated from Kindergarten this week! {Sniff}  We will also be celebrating her 6th birthday!  Both these events fell on the same day!  I was knee deep in end of year activities and clean up, birthday planning, and graduation celebrations!  I am one tired Mama!!


My room is now ready for summer cleaning and I'm going home!!
Have a wonderful end to your school year and a great summer!
