Surviving until Summer!


I'm linking up with two of my blogging besties,  Katie @ Queen of the First Grade Jungle and Michelle @ Fabulous in First to share my plans for surviving until summer!! I actually only have 28 days....28 days...28 days left of school! Ahhhh...that is so hard to believe!!

Here's what is going to help me survive....

1. Counting down to our first family of 4 vacation to the beach! We will be sitting on this porch to kick off summer very soon! Can't wait!!  
 

2. GoNoodle....lots & lots of GoNoodle!

3. Hands-on activities are a must to keep my students engaged during these last 5 weeks of school. Since the majority of our curriculum is taught by now, my kiddos will be playing a lot of fun learning games to review skills!  

4. Field Trip!!

Not kidding y'all...call my team and I crazy, but we just booked a field trip for the week before the last day of school to our local park/zoo! It's so much fun to make end of the school year memories outside of school! 

5. Project Based Learning
We all know that once summer fever hits, students tend struggle with motivation and engagement. This is the main reason my school participates in school wide, cross grade level project based learning during the last couple weeks of school. Project based learning gives students the opportunity to experience something they would never get to learn about during a regular school day. The classes offered range from STEM to service related to content focused projects. It also allows teachers to teach about something they are passionate about outside of their usual curriculum.  Win-Win! 

6. Drinking lots of coffee!!! 



















7. Family Time- Hanging with my family always brightens up my day! 



What do you do to survive summer fever??

Likewise with any loan, be that as it may, you need to pay back a cash advance at the concurred time. At the point when taking out a cash development, remember that you ought to have the capacity to bear to pay it off in a short measure of time.
