End of the Year and did I say...{ Freebie ?!? } and mini giveaway!!!

Tuesday, May 21, 2013
Wow I can't believe it...I have 10 more teaching days left.  This year was awesome!  I love my kiddos so much - all 30 of them!  It was a HUGE transition going from 20 to 23 then all the way { and believe me that was quite a stretch } to 30.  But, they are each so special and unique and we've had a blast together!  Since I have taught 2nd and 3rd grade for a few years each I tend to think that I'm an expert ~ ha, just kidding...maybe not but I know enough to have made some end of the year packs for those grades....so check them out. 
Here's one for first grade hot off the presses!
Of course I still have last years pack that is super fun giving you specific activities to do each day that last week.
Here's the freebie that's been updated just this week too...enjoy!
***So...leave me a comment first about which pack you would like then what you liked best about this class or this year.  I will pick 3 lucky winners tomorrow.***  Happy { almost } summer!



  1. OMG Vicky!! They look ADORABLE!!! Love the colors :) This year, I felt like I truly have had the best class. They were so sweet to each other, kind, supportive, I just LOVE them and hate to see them go! thepolkadotowl@gmail.com

  2. I liked having a small class. I only have 16 now! If I win, I would like the end of year printable pack. Thanks! nl_scannon@seovec.org

  3. I had 29 kindergarten students last year. This year I have had 23 which seemed like such a small class after last year. Your end of the year printable a look line a great addition to anyone's end of year fun. :)

  4. End of the year printable looks awesome. I have a whole month left and this is the first time I have really thought about looping. I won't, but koi really though about it ;)

  5. They are all so cute, but if I have to pick just one.... I love the Summer Time Fun Unit!

    Favorite thing about this year? My kiddos of course! I am going to miss them!

  6. I would pick the End of the Year printables pack. My class is so sweet, loving and caring! You know how sometimes your kids just get along, well this is one of those years for me! Thanks!


  7. I would like the finishing up first package. I started after the school year began. This has been a challenging class since day one. I love them all but will be glad to semd them to second grade:-)

  8. I had the most challenging class thos year! I love them all but WoW they are exhausting. I would love to win the first grade packet.

  9. I would love Finishing Up First.

    The best thing about this year? -- Having my best friend as an aide in my classroom, and my daughter as a reading aide. Dream Team year!!

  10. I would love to win the Finishing Up First Packet. My class has been a challenge, but the results of DIBELS and AIMSWeb show that they are improving!


  11. What I like best about this year is that it made me appreciate last year's class even more!

    I'd love the second grade activity pack should I win. (Because then I could keep them so busy they wouldn't have time to annoy one another the last few weeks!)

  12. I would like Finishing Up First. I really like my class and can't believe how fast this year has flown. I also like all of the parental support I received. Next year's class is going to be really challenging and there will be so many of them.

  13. I would love the Finishing Up First unit! Looks super fun! My class has been wonderful this year. The last day will be very bittersweet.

  14. FINISHING UP FIRST GRADE! YES!!!! Please...:) This year was EXTREMELY challenging ( 6 Spec. Ed students...no assistant!)

  15. Finishing Up First Grade for me! I had a challenging class this year - but NOTHING compared to what's coming up from kindergarten!!!


  16. I would like the 1st grade pack...Finishing up First Grade. This was a nice year. Many great kids in the class. I got to see many of the grow. Even some of my challenging kids have grown so much. They have so many more better days than anything else. It was a great year! I was blessed!
