Next year we are gong to have a 'hoot' of a time in the yellow hallway.
I decided to do a theme this year and I went with owls.
I've been searching like a crazy person for all the cute owl things that would complete my vision.
Here is a picture of my first investment into this theme.

I've also ordered note pads (Having a Hoot of a Time with Ms. Budgell), pencils, and owl note paper.
I've also found paper bag owl puppets for our first craft.
I am going to keep digging and 'whoooo' knows what I will find.

New Class Pet

I am in a really excited about getting another class pet.
I love my turtleTucker, but I want a furry pet too.
When Petland came to visit us at Camp Skeeter, they told us of a teacher grant they offer.
That was all I needed and now I want another pet.
So I am down to a bunny or a guinea pig.

Which would you pick?

So Long Camp Skeeter

It is time to put my Camp Skeeter t-shirt away,

finish grade cards, say 'good bye' to the kids, finish packing up my room
say 'hello' to summer!

There is always something special about the night before the last day of school.

Camping is Hard Work!

I just took a two hour nap.  Four days of camping will take it our of you!
We have been sooooo (isn't that such a first grade thing to do) busy.
We've had parent counselors who've taught us to zumba and make bird feeders.
We've had a police officers talk to us about summer safety and a man from Petland came and shared animals with us.

We've also had parents provide us snacks.
Staff members have been coming in as Mystery Readers. 

Well, I should go and grade papers and do my grade cards. 
Just too much to do at the end of the year.
