This week will be pretty crazy as well, as it is officially our last week of school! I have the usual mixed emotions about this. I absolutely love my class this year, and it's always hard to say good bye. However, I have a to do list about 5 miles long that I can't wait to tackle.
Although my grades are turned in for report cards, I still need to finish the narratives. That will be top priority for tomorrow so I can focus on enjoying my final days with this class.
On Wednesday, the fifth graders will be entertaining the entire school with their annual talent show. It's so much fun to see how creative they are with this. In the past, I've seen everything from a "trick shot" basketball video to dance, gymnastics, and martial arts.
Thursday is our last day of school. I still can't believe it! It really is true that time just flies by faster and faster! We have a fun day planned for the students. They will spend the morning participating in Super Games. Super Games is an awesome company that provides water games, giant slides, obstacle courses and so much more for the kids (and teachers).
When they return, we have a couple of final things to take care of in the classroom, including handing out these classroom awards from Confessions of a Teaching Junkie. Students selected each one of their classmates to win an award. There are 30 to choose from, so everyone is a winner! As students' names are called, they come down the "runway" and receive high fives from all their peers.
We will also look at the time capsules we completed at the beginning of the year. Students will fill out a new form and compare it to what they filled out in the beginning of the year. I used this form from Dots-n-Spots.com.
I hope everyone has peaceful days (relatively speaking, of course) as the school year winds down. I'm off to Jennifer's blog to see what everyone else is up to this week.
Thank you, and have a great week!
