I meant to post yesterday, but I had my end of the year meeting with my principal. Then, I had dinner with my brother and sister-in-law. Short story short, I was tired and went straight to bed when I got home.
On Friday, we had our end of the year party. I bought Sarah's, First Grader At Last, Hollywood Ending packet. We had a fun Hollywood themed party. Scratch that....the students had a BLAST. They were smiling, posing, and LOVING being celebrities for the afternoon. Thank you Sarah for a FANTASTIC packet. Click here to check it out.
I teamed up with our fantastic art teacher to help me paint their hands to make the Walk of Fame. I was thrilled with how they came out. :-)
Next up was the red carpet. It wasn't long enough so I had to use our small classroom rug for extra length. My little monsters didn't mind. They made the rug be their "posing" place.
Here are some pictures from our party. I told them that if they wanted to dress up as "celebrities" then they could. I had a handful of students who dressed up. They were just plum ADORABLE!
Strike a pose!
They LOVED walking around the "Walk of Fame" and seeing how big or small each other's hands were.
Since we are all "FAMOUS" we had to sign autographs. :-)
Next week is my last week with these kiddos. I'm really going to miss them. I've had my ups and downs with them, but I can honestly say that they are a terrific group of kids. I'm ready for summer and some time away from them, but they will be missed.
Guess what I did today?!?! I took my Brayden for a haircut. His first haircut. I may have teared up. He is growing up so fast. He looks super cute, but he doesn't look like a "baby" anymore. He looks like a little man.
I hope everyone has had a great day!
Lots of love,
