2 more weeks, 2 more weeks...
but with so much to do!
My kinders have been hard at work practicing for next week's graduation. We had an artist from a local pottery store in the other day so that the students could paint an adorable plate as a keepsake from this year.
My daughter - who will be 4 this August - attends a preschool program 3 days a week. It's her last day tomorrow! Already!
Where has this year gone?
I am in the midst of wrapping up the gifts for her teacher and teacher aides.
When I saw this basket online I knew it was a must!
I think the personalized name is adorable!
I try to give gifts that I know I would love (and use) too!
There are 2 teacher aide's in the class. I wrapped up a mug with a Starbucks gift card inside - hey, which teacher doesn't like Starbucks?
My daughter had such a fabulous experience this year, especially because she is so proud that she is reading - yes, READING! - that we went together this weekend to Chapters and picked this adorable book for the class.
Have you read it? I love all of Lois Ehlert's books.
And since there are only a couple of weeks left, the teachers are busy at our school trying to put together class lists for next year. I don't know yet who will be in my class but I am starting to prepare some things to ease the workload in August (and besides, we are off to Jamaica in August, who wants to do a lot of work then?).
I thought I would share the cover pages to the Journal, Writer's Workshop Folder and Religion Journal with you.
(I teach in a Catholic school and we have a great religion program).
I glue these onto 11x17 workbooks.

Sorry for the short post. I'm off to wrap up these gifts before I call it quits for the night - I'm beat!
Next up...graduation and more about Writer's Workshop time and Journal writing as per your e-mails!!!
