You know, just another day in Chicago hanging out with my girl #Oprah!
TJMaxx AND Marshall's - oh my! #mykindofshopping #chicago
Lots to explore along Chicago's #magnificentmile #summervacay
Remembering lost loved ones with candle lighting at the #notredamegrotto
#touchdownjesus sends his love! #notredame #summervacay
Last night we enjoyed an evening stroll on the #mishawakariverwalk #summervacay
Last day in the Kindergarten Countdown! It was Special Treat Day and we enjoyed some watermelon! #hellosummer
Day 2 was Popcorn and Movie Day (teacher translation: pack up time) #onedayleft
Twas the night before the last day and Im out enjoying a hot date (which happens to be the name of my favorite pizza!) #peppinosneapolitan #getsome
Day 3 was Exercise Day! We continued to dance, did a little yoga, and played a number word exercise game.
Day 4 was Dance Day and while I didn't get any pictures of us dancing, I did manage to snap a few photos of us at our school Olympics. We also visited first grade today! Busy, busy day!
Day 5 was favorite color day. We predicted which color popsicle would melt the fastest (it was red!)
Day 6 of the Kindergarten Countdown was Beach Day. We brought our beach towels and sunglasses and ate a picnic lunch outside. Later in the day, we played The Goldfish Game (see link in profile to find this game)!
Day 7 was Stuffed Animal Day and our buddies were with us through reading and writing workshop and we played a dice game with them during math small groups.
Day 8 was Patriotic Day and we made our own flags!
Day 9 was joke and riddle day! We brought jokes from home to share and made lift-the-flap animal riddles (find these using link in profile)!
Today we began our 10 day countdown! Day 10 was Favorite Book Day! From left to right is my favorite book as a child, our most requested class favorite, and the last book in our favorite series!
I received these for my birthday from a friend who reminded me that, unlike Charlie Brown (All I got was a rock!), I actually like getting rocks! #theperfectgift
On Friday, we had our end of year slide ceremony where we celebrated the children's growth in kindergarten. This pinwheel garden was part of the fun-filled morning. To read more about it see link in profile!
In response to another child trying to grab the worm out of his hand, he said, Stop, I'm observating it! #theymakemelaugh
End of year self portraits - I love how their personalities come through!
Is it dirt or soil (or both)? We are investigating to find out!
Make way for goslings! #outforastroll
This little guy doesn't know it yet, but he is going on a field trip tomorrow to meet some kindergarteners!
Great day for cloud watching! #lookup
