Summer Bucket List

I'm linking up with Natalie and Rachelle @ What the Teacher Wants for some Summer Bucket List fun!  Believe it or not, I've been on summer vacation for 3 weeks already. Every single second of it has been AWESOME! It's so nice to slow down, focus on my family (and myself) , AND create my own schedule!! Lots of goals and must do things have already been checked off my bucket list, but with 6 more weeks to go, I still have many more things I want to accomplish! 

 I'm looking forward to reading these professional development books this summer...I love having time to read and reflect on my teaching practices during my time off! 

I'm also planning do a little updating here and there in my classroom. After moving out of my house (and another move in 6 months), I could not commit to completely changing my classroom decor, but I'm going to rearrange, add new things, and organize/clean everything!

Coming Soon...

Summer is also my favorite time to work on creating things for my classroom/TpT. I'm working on a new fraction math unit right now that I can't wait to share with y'all! It should be ready in a couple of weeks! 

The most important and sweetest thing on bucket list is spending time with my babies! If I don't do anything but snuggle and play with them this summer, I will be one happy mama! 
I'm also looking forward to officially selling my house. Our closing is this Friday! Yay! Excited and nervous about building our new home and living in a small apartment until it's ready!!!  

Going to the beach is always a summer bucket list'er. We went a couple of weeks ago and had a blast! Also, plan to get my pool time on as much as possible and start making design plans on our new home! 

What's on your summer bucket list? Link up here!

End of the Year Gift {free download}

I can't believe tomorrow is my last day of school!! Sad to be saying good-bye to my first graders, but excited about having fun and relaxing with my family this summer! Wooohoooo!!! 

Last night, I quickly put together end of the year gifts for my sweet class. Waiting until the last minute made it absolutely necessary for them to be simple. I bought sidewalk chalk at the Dollar Tree and made a "I hope your summer is "CHALK" full of fun!" tag to go along with them. Easy Peasy! Feel free to use:)

Countdown to Summer- Math and Literacy Review Games and Activities

The last few weeks of school can be CRAZY! You've taught everything on your curriculum map and summer fever is taking over BIG time! A few weeks ago I decided to start working on a resource that would make life a little easier when planning review activities for my students as we counted down the days until summer vacation! I've always found that my students' behavior is so much better when I plan lessons that allow them to move around as they work. This was the inspiration for my newest packet...

It's full of math and literacy activities/games to get your students up and moving around while they sharpen their skills! My students have loved them, and they've made lesson planning a breeze as we survive until summer! 

All of these summer themed activities are ready to use...just print, laminate, cut, and play! For more details about this packet, click here! It's on sale for the next 24 hours or so!! 
Happy *Almost* Summer!!
