End of the Year Shenanigans!

  Although we still have 9 days of school left, things are stating to wind down.  I have finished doing my DIBELs assessments and my volunteer has helped me to complete the regular ELA/Math assessments this week.  So, that means I am in the midst of getting report cards done!  YAY!  I had taken a day off this week to get to a doctors appointment and I ended up spending some of that day working on completing some report cards.  This is what my dining room table looked like, well, half of it anyway!

  We are also preparing for our Kindergarten Moving on Ceremony.  The Kinders will be singing along to "Over the Rainbow" by Israel Kamakawiwo╩╗ole.  It's such a cute and upbeat version of the song.  Since there are five Kindergarten classes in our school we have separated into 3 classes and 2 classes.  I am one of the three classes and we have chosen this song for our graduation. I'm not sure what the other 2 teachers are planning on doing for their graduation.  Anywho, my very talented paraprofessional made these invitations which I sent home to the parents today:

Aren't they adorable?!  She's also made them graduation caps and she will also be putting together the balloon palm trees!  I will post pictures once they are created!

The last shenanigan for tonight is our staff field day.  A few weeks ago we were asked to pick a stick using this neat little app.  I ended up with "Team Green".  We weren't given any further information that day, but, a few days later we found out that we would be on teams competing in physical and mental games on June 21st after our Staff BBQ!  2 weeks ago we had to wear our team color.  That was simple for me as I have a school shirt in green!  Tomorrow we are supposed to wear team color socks.  That, was not easy for me...until I realized that my brother might still have his green baseball socks!  Low and behold, he did!  Here I am sporting the goods:


That is all for now.  I must keep telling myself, "I think I can, I think I can..."
