Anyway, here is a recap of everything I didn't end up getting to blog about (I will try better next year, maybe even have some freebies if I can figure that out)...pictures that I found on my iPhone...
|My grant for the BEYOND QUESTION remote system came in!|
These are awesome...every kid gets one and they enter answers to questions
I project on the Mimio board. I need to perfect this system for progress
monitoring in the future (aka September)!
|Testing snacks...note the clear water bottles without labels...|
didn't want to get in trouble for "cheating." Speaking of NYS
tests...I want to see my kiddos scores!!!
|I was awarded this lovely hot pink duct tape bracelet|
inscribed with "World's Best Teacher"
|We took a trip all the way from here to Lynhurst, NJ for Medieval Times!|
|Donor's Choose books came in for next year's partner reading projects|
that I'd love to launch! My kids made this set-up for posting online
to thank our generous donors!
|Unrelated note---my brother is going to be starting college at Marist College |
in Poughkeepsie next year!!!
In other news:
1.) I did the balloon countdown thing I saw on Pinterest (gosh, I love Pinterest)...where you hide a surprise written on paper inside balloons and pop them accordingly. Anyway, my kids LOVED IT!
2.) I will be the 7th grade class advisor for next year so I get to see my kiddos after they are all grown up from the summer. I'm so glad and thankful that I don't have to say goodbye.
Sending love and happy end-of-the-year wishes to you all in BlogLand.
