End of the Year

Hi Everyone, Liv here!

Wow. What a week! School has officially come to an end and post planning is technically over now.  

My team and I spent the last week of school having fun with our kids. All 5 of us decided to each do a different special activity in our classrooms and let all 90 first graders wander around from room to room. It was a success! One room offered x-box Kinect, one had art projects, another had a movie/popcorn, and my room had 8 different types of building blocks/construction type activities. I know what you are thinking---that is only 4 rooms....well, the 5th room was time-out (just in case things got a bit crazy!). Thankfully very few kids had to visit this room and fun was able to be had by everyone! It was a great way to end the year, and it gave the kids the chance to interact with students that they might be in class with next year!

Post-planning was yesterday and today, but I actually didn't spend more than 5 minutes in my room.  My kids did such a great job of helping me get things done the last week of school that it really freed me up to help my team, which was perfect!  We accomplished so much!  I helped our new teammate move from her 5th grade room into her new 1st grade room, helped repaint a gigantic 24 cubby shelf, helped prepared 6 bulletin boards, and went very “pinterest” on an old filing cabinet and manipulative table.  So fun! 

 Here are some pictures of our hard work:



So, are you finished with school?  What fun activities did your kids do the last week?  What did you do during post-planning??


  1. Makeovers are so much fun thanks to Pinterest!

    We have to get our rooms ready for the carpet to be cleaned....not fun! =(

    So, I start making new things for next year. Yes, I might be sick since the year has barely ended and I am already thinking of the new year! =)

    I would love for you to stop by and visit. I'll be sharing lots of *freebies* this summer. =)
