Well, the countdown until Summer if offically on. Our school has 6 days left. I find June to be one of the longest months! There are no new lessons being taught, its just finish up, clean up and pack up. The kids are pretty much wild- mostly because the weather is nice and there is less structrue in the class. I seem to have about a hundred things on the go and its my own damn fault!!
1. I decided it would be a great idea for each of the kids to sew their own bag to take all their workbooks home in. Two weeks later we are still sewing
2. I decided it would be cute if they could each make a little something for their end of the year gift for 2011. So 3 buckets of clay later, 100 wipes of the table and over 20 minutes per child- they each have of their very own labryinth.
3. Of course then there is Father's Day- we had to do a craft and card.
4. I displayed all the lost and found items- funny enough all those mitts, sweaters, coats and other items still don't belong to anyone?!!
5. I cleaned out the collection of pencils, puzzle pieces, toys, bandaids, paints, and other random and miscellaneous items from your cupboards.
6. On top of all that- I am totally freaking out about the end of the year performance. Will they remember their lines, will someone fall of the stage, will everyone show up, what if there is a costume malfunction?!
Ahhh well, just breathe. 6 more days. Well that is until next year!
