Relay for Life and One More Day!! {freebie!!}

Photo: A beautiful day to fight cancer!!!
I am so excited to say that my little school raised $14,000 for Relay for Life this year!! It's exciting how much can be done when we all work together. The picture above is from survivor's lap during our Relay event we had Friday. That is a time for us to remember those who have passed with cancer and those who have fought cancer. It's awesome to have a principal who has such a wonderful vision for our school that far exceeds anything that I could even dream for our school.
This was a great 2nd to last day.
And that means tomorrow is our last day of school! I have no idea how it passed by so quickly!!
One thing that I like to give my students at the end of each year is a book of their writing. Each month I collect at least one writing sample, date stamp it and file it away. This really comes in hand during parent conferences to show growth and how the child is currently doing. At the end of the year, I print of my "Tales of Kindergarten" book cover on color paper, pull each child's writing samples and staple to create their book. I write their name on the front in Sharpie and place their picture on the front cover. They LOVE looking through their book and seeing how their writing has improved over the year {especially the ones who couldn't write their name at the beginning}.
Click on the picture or here to snag the book covers from my little TpT store for free. I have them for K, 1st and 2nd and a generic one.

Discovered Something New!

Hello friends! We are in the final countdown in my little kindergarten class. We only have 6 days left! I've been looking for activities that will be meaningful and fun for these last few days. We are finally going to be able to work on my Frog Life Cycle unit.
And today I discovered this from The Primary Techie.
The Primary Techie

It will be an awesome interactive way to review teen numbers before my kinders go on to 1st and it has dance breaks!! The best part of all is she has over 50 Move It units! I just added many to my wishlist {shhhhh, don't tell my husband because I already got a lot of goodies during the sale}. Click on either picture to check it out!

I'm linking up with Farley for this month's currently. the TV. It's on pretty much all the time.
Loving...that we only have 11 more days left! How has this year flown by so fast!?!?!
Thinking..about what to get the hubby for his birthday, other than the cookie cake that I will eat half of.
Wanting...speaking of cookie cake, I'd really like something with chocolate. But, I'm trying to do better. I had such will power at the grocery store and only bought good snacks that I want nothing to do with now. work in my flower beds. Those weeds grow in overnight!
Summer Bucke enjoy every day of it!!!
