Have a "Sweet" Summer
I found the cutest little candy toppers at Tipp"Ins" & Out, that say, "Have a Sweet Summer". Click on the link or the picture above to download and print your end of the school year candy topper to place on your treats.
Before lunch, I completed a game of hangman with them. Knowing that I was going to pass out their treats to them after the game was over, I used the phrase "Have a Sweet Summer". I made sure to check their ability to use all of the vowels, each of them raised their hands quietly and listed off each one. Then I asked them to guess from the consonants. They did an excellent job of figuring out the phrase and won the game. As they lined up for lunch, I sent them off with their treats. I promised my CT that I would come visit her next school year. I will need to come in on a Friday after school so that I can see those smiling faces come in (past students come in for a piece of candy from her). I will have to do something like that in my future classroom, it is a great way to stay connected to your former students.
What an incredible morning! Back to reading and studying, I go. Until next time ....
