I'm still in school. Yep. 15 more days. I actually know how many teaching hours too. Bad I know!
And what always happens to me at the end of a school year is, of course, happening again. I start to
completely abandon lighten up on the rules. Just slightly. I can't help myself. Here are my reasons and I can defend each one.
1. I'll never have this class again.
2. It's REALLY hot in my room.
3. I LOVE my kids and want to have fun with them.
4. It's HOT in my room!!!
So, the other day, we were in the middle of a Pout Pout Fish activity and I told my kids we were going to paint the fish right away. Their response: Well, what about our morning work? I told them we were skipping it today. Then, one of them said to me: You mean we are painting right now first thing in the morning? Me: Yes! I turned back to the board and I heard - I love you Miss. Music to my ears. And so we painted. With our shoes off, of course.
The Pout Pout Fish is such a sweet story and there is so much you can do with it. I've been using Deanna Jump's unit cause she has such amazing and easy ideas.
This is my Pout Pout desk
Since I do only have 15 days left, here is my Field Day Freebie. You can use it before the Field Day or after. Even if you don't have a Field Day, you can still use it. Just click on the pic.
