The Countdown is on......

For many us we are less than 30 days away from the end of another school year and we are so excited and ready for a much needed Summer Break Vacation.

Below are a few tips to make your end of the year a smooth one!

1.    Get Caught Up On Paperwork

Closing out a school year is full of paperwork that teachers must fill out in order to end a school year. Whether it is filling out paperwork about student academic progress, comments for reports cards or just routine end of the year paperwork make sure you go ahead now and get a head start on it.

2. Start Purging NOW!

Now is the time to start throwing away or giving away unwanted supplies or materials that you may not want to keep. A good spot for these materials are usually placing them in the teacher’s lounge for anyone to grab or donating them to a first year teacher! If you start now then you may not have to do so much at the end.

3. Plan Engaging Lessons

With the end of school, your students are also bored and tired and need to be engaged constantly. Think about having your students do a research project of some kind. Here is a link to my latest product which is a Country Research Project. This project can be used to keep students engaged while still learning and doing important research skills.

4.                Take Field Trips!
Another fun way to get students engaged is to take them on a field trip. One last field trip before the end of the school year can you give your students something to look forward to as well as you a fun day of learning outside of the school building.

5.  Pack it on UP!

At this point it’s nothing wrong with you starting to put away some supplies and materials away that you may not be needing until next year. Often times with testing teachers have to cover or take down instructional materials any way. Therefore this could be the perfect time to start putting away and packing up your materials.

Teachers Take FRENCHLICK!!!

Last weekend I attended an amazing Frenchlick Teacher Blogger Retreat in Frenchlick, Indiana. It was truly a blast! It was a much well needed retreat to reenergize and keep me focused and on track with some of my goals. The school year has flown by in a whirlwind and this retreat has allowed me to reset some of my priorities.
The trip started out on Friday after work and my road mates were Allie  (Classroom Action with Ms.Jackson), Latoya (Flying into First Grade) and Angela (The Daily Alphabet). We arrived at about 11:30pm and checked in and went out to explore the resort!

On Saturday was the big meet up day. First, we did a fun icebreaker activity that spelled out the theme for the weekend “Take Your Passion and Make it Happen”. Next, we did a fun teacher tool swap activity. We were broken into clusters by grade level/specialty and passed our bags around until the music stopped. We then each opened up the gift and the person who gave it to you explained their gift. I received some materials to make a cool probability station. My gift to the other person was a mini glue gun, a battery operated pencil sharpener, baskets, poster markers and sharpies.

The next activity was one of my favorite activities and that was the roundtable discussions. I learned a ton on ideas on how to increase my followers, branding myself, TpT ideas and utilizing Pinterest.  After that it was time for all the goodies and giveaways! I won a very cute 30.00 store credit to Twinkle Twinkle Lil Jar. Next we received our t-shirts and swag bag full of goodies.

That night we ended with an epic 80’s party. There was fun, food, games and even a surprise flash mob dance. The photo booth was a nice touch as well. The next morning (early next morning, because of Daylight Savings Time) we met for a farewell group pic with our t-shirts on and had breakfast at the resort’s famous breakfast buffet.

We then bid our farewells and headed back to our respective homes. Overall I had a blast connecting faces with names and getting to know more teacher blogger friends. I can’t wait for next year! Check out some of the pics that I took from this weekend!

Ready for the retreat to begin!

Our theme for the weekend!

I won a 30.00 credit to this vendor Twink Twinkle Lil Jar! Can't wait to use it!

Ready for the 80's party!

What can I say I'm an 80's baby!!!!

What an EPIC 80s party this was!

Saying our Goodbyes! Until next time Frenchlick!
