Last days in Kindergarten... what are we up to?

Well, today is 18 more days left of school!! Yay! I sure will miss my kindergarten sweeties when I am in 5th next year, but I know I will make positive relationships with the older students as well:)

In honor of counting down the days, we are popping a balloon with a special activity:

18 - inside manipulative play time (instead of small group work in the AM)
17 - sidewalk chalk (afternoon)
16 - sit anywhere
15 - no shoes in class
14 - ice cream cones (yummy)
13 - listen to music during small group work time
12 - chew gum
11 - use markers instead of pencils to complete work (this is a BIG deal to
10 - sidewalk chalk (during small group time)
9 - Tour 1st grade classroom & ask questions
8 - inside manipulative play time (instead of small group work in the AM)
7 - free drawing time (AM)

5 - make paper airplane & have an airplane flying contest
4 - FIELD DAY - all day games outdoors
3 - movie & popcorn
2 - draw & listen to music

We are looking forward to our upcoming field trip (downtown) to visit our local library, police station, and radio station!!
