Plus, (drum roll please), I'm moving up to 2nd grade! I've loved being in first grade, but now it's time to move on up. I plan on spending my summer surfing second grade blogs to get ideas from all you fantastic bloggers. Let me know if you know of any super 2nd grade blogs I should visit!
More great news! I made it to the last day of school! We had a great last day yesterday. Two fun and easy ideas to share:
1. Classmate Bingo--I made a 3x3 table in Word. The kids put their name in the middle (free space) and then filled their classmates' names in the other blank spots. The first couple of times we played, I drew a child's name and called it out. Simple. Then I drew a child's name and gave clues about the child. The kids had to guess who I was talking about. Super fun.
2. Just Dance for Kids--This is a great way to get your kids' wiggles out! We usually watch these videos on youtube for 5-10 minutes, and my kids are ALWAYS begging for more. So, for the last day, we had a dance party. We moved all the desks out of the may and danced, danced, danced! My kids favorites: "Gummy Bear" and "Dispicable Me" but there are tooooooooons more!
