Price Chopper Party for Pages!

This year my students worked toward a goal of reading 30,000 pages. Thanks to Price Chopper's reading incentive program, Party for Pages, we had a tremendously fun time yesterday! My students were amazed at how much we were awarded for reaching our goal: ice cream bars, fruit snacks, bottled water, Danimals Smoothies, paper towels, and a movie! What could be better than that?! When my students popped their #3 balloon for our countdown to summer, it read: Wow! Only three days until summer! You will get enjoy ICE CREAM in the morning!!! As you can imagine, my students went wild!! They were so excited! It was a great party! We finished up our day by packing up our room and cleaning out our desks. That left me more exhausted than I thought I would be! Phew!

Our number four balloon encouraged us to write a letter to a future third grader. We did an example together and discussed how we should welcome each student in the opening sentence. My students are sealing them in a decorated envelope so when my new students arrive in August, they will be greeted with a nice surprise. My class enjoyed giving advice and friendly suggestions in their letters. It was a perfect way to transition to "Move-Up Day," where all classes visit a teacher/classroom in the next grade level and learn a little bit about what to expect.

The number five balloon's message was to enjoy lunch together, while we watched a short video. My students LOVE eating lunch together! That makes me really happy ;)
