This is it......drum roll please....
tomorrow is my LAST DAY OF SCHOOL!

I can't wait for summer to officially start!

In the mean time, I apologize for being so overdue with this post but you know how the last couple of weeks of school are, right?
So much to do, so little time!

Anyways, here are some pictures from our Kindergarten Graduation last week.
Our theme was "It's a Small World."
This is our backdrop on stage....thank you Mrs. Chiovitti and Mrs. Sampogna for making it!
Here is the hot air balloon each student made.
Don't you love the primary colours?
My fabulous teaching partner, Mrs. Angelucci, came up with it!
We had each student's name written above it in gold glitter.
The students wrote what they want to be when they grow up underneath.
First, I had them write it using "Kid Writing" in their journals.  Then we went over it together and I wrote using my "Grown up writing" on top.

These cute graduation kids were hanging on the walls on the side of the stage.

Wish I could have taken pictures of the kiddies but that's a definite "no-no" so just picture 63 students (yes, that's 3 classes) on stage and on the risers wearing adorable blue caps and gowns!
We had a great time!

I'm so excited for the last day tomorrow!
I'll post again really soon answering some of your questions regarding my Writer's Workshop time, journals, printing books, etc.

Bring on the summer!!!!
