Linking Up with Doodle Bugs

1.  Today was the last day with students.  We go back on Tuesday for 1/2 day of Professional Development and 1/2 day of working in our room.

2.  Yesterday was Student Appreciation Day.  We started this tradition five years ago and each year we try and out-perform last year's performance.  This year was great!!!  This is our Glow Dance!

3.  Tonight I'm taking my children camping- in the backyard!!! Our record is 10 pm...

4.  I spent quite a bit of time making Summer Reading packets for students to work on this summer.  They included about 8 Reading A to Z books on their independent levels, sight word activities, and Letter/Sound Cards that the teachers use in the classroom.  We've never done this before, but are hoping it helps. 

5.  Our school district has been working with the local library to promote summer reading.  We've been trying to really get the students excited about it.  This is what I looked like when I passed out books and the letters about the program.  For students that participate, they bring their certificate from the library back, and there is a special book and ice-cream party with the principal.  Something that we are very lucky to have is a bookmobile that is right by the school every Tuesday and Thursday for 5 hours a day!!!  This is a great way for students to have access to books all summer long.


  1. Good luck camping with your kids. :). I love that you set up summer reading packets.
