How many of you catch yourselves working over the summer? If I had to take a guess, it's not just me. I have been out of school for 6 (counting the weekend) days and have already started to "work" again. During the last month of school I was extremely busy in every part of my life. On Tuesday I took the day for myself and went to a coffee shop organized my digital files and started to catch up on my blogs.
If you haven't been to growingkinder.blogspot.com you have to check it out. Blogs have become a new thing for me this year and I have a little O.C.D. and have to go back to the very beginning of a lot of the blogs I have found. This has been the case for growing kinders and boy and I glad I have done that. She has so many great ideas! She doesn't have the files for you to download so I have been recreating a lot of what I see. I can't wait to use and post all of the ideas in Sept./Oct.
I know this is a little late but just so you don't stop by without getting anything I am going to attach the end of the year poem I gave to kiddos. My friend next door did the same thing but she rolled a piece of chalk up in it and tied it like a diploma, too cute!

Let's face the fact, we just can't let our kinders go and want them to remember us dearly so we create homework for them to do all summer, just what every kid wants.
In the same fashion I do my homework all year for my kiddos I made 3 more months worth to cover the summer. If you have taught kindergarten for any period of time you know our dear friend kelly from kellyskindergarten and that is where I got the idea for my homework. I have taken many ideas from her but tweak it a bit to fit my style and my kiddos needs.
