Summer Bucket List
My pinterest addiction is in full-swing as the last 3 weeks of school are now upon me. Over the weekend it hit me: There are only 16 school days left....scratch that...15 days now. Oh. My. Goodness. I still have SO MUCH TO DO! I switched out my bulletin board for a more Summer-y feel. I had decorative Chinese take-out boxes that I put to good use, hung some colored yarn up, and pinned keychains to the bulletin board. Students are to draw or bring small items that represent what they will be doing (or hope to do) this summer. They will go in each student's bucket. What they don't know is that I already started them off with a small gift: colored sidewalk chalk:)
While I was walking through the aisles of Michael's, I spotted keychains. This (of course) immediately made me think of a nice end-of-year gift for my students. I picked out tie-dye paper at Michael's and wrote each child's name on it. My husband put them together for me:) When my kiddos saw these this morning, they LOVED it!
