I apologize for the lack of posting lately! I promise I will catch up on everything that I have not blogged about over the past couple of months: Easter printables, Plants/Seeds, Butterflies, Zoo and everything in between. We finished school last Thursday (Friday was clerical) and I just need to spend some time doing nothing. This year has been exhausting for me and May is always a difficult month for me working through the anniversary of the death of my daughter as well as her birthday. On top of everything, I am dealing with some medical issues and just need some time to take care of myself.
The last day in my classroom I spent cleaning, organizing and rearranging. I wanted to try out new furniture placements before I left for the summer otherwise I would be thinking about it all summer. (Does anyone else do this?!) Unfortunately, this is the year for “deep cleaning” of my wing so EVERYTHING on the walls had to come down. The take-down is the easy part – it will take at least a day to put it all back up – in the stifling August heat in a building with no air conditioning…I’m sweating just thinking about it! So for now, this is the arrangement for next year. We’ll see how many new floor plans I can dream up!
I am looking forward to having the summer off – to not worry about classes, reading what I WANT to read, and just enjoying time with my family! I plan on attending the Minnesota Early Childhood/Kindergarten conference in May, and then shortly after that hop on a plan for our annual trip to Norway.
For all of you that are still in school – the end is near! Here is a fun little book that I like to do with my kids at the end of the year. The original packet came from Green Gables Kindergarten and I have modified it ever-so-slightly! (Click on the picture to download – be sure to leave a comment if you download!)
PS – I am afraid I have to admit as I was looking at the pictures of my classroom, I have thought of another idea for furniture placement! Ahh…the curse has begun!
