I linked up with A Cupcake for the Teacher to let you know what I plan on doing this summer – and its lots! I have been so inspired this year from the blogging world that I can’t wait to get organized and start a fresh new year of fun in first!
I love these numbered bags I found on Mrs. Terhune’s First Grade Site. I plan on using them as weekly reading book bags for the kids to bring home on Monday and return on Friday with their books and phonics/reading comprehension activities.
I plan to buy some beads and chains to make these reading incentive necklaces from The Teacher Wife! I loved this when I first saw it and it such a good visual for the students all year long!
Fast finisher cards from Rachelle’s What the Teacher Wants. As of recent I had been out of ideas for early finishers and fell into a bit of a “just read a book on the rug” slump… whoops 🙁 This is such an easy way to let the kids know what to do when they finish early! All I have to do is print, laminate, add magnet and pick the one I want for each lesson!
There are so many other things I need/want to do this summer… including making many trips to The Container Store which is opening this weekend here in Vegas – SO excited!!
Also, if you haven’t seen my giveaway for my addition with 3 addends packet, go ahead and enter it!! Not many people have…. so you have a good chance of winning 😉
