In the summer, I love spending time with my own children!  I have always considered it such a wonderful part of the teaching profession to be able to spend more time with family.  I wish all mothers had this time...  We love to spend time at the beach and camping in our RV.  Sitting around a campfire is one of our favorite things... It's funny how a mesmerizing fire can lead to such thoughtful and relaxing conversations.

On another note, during the summer, I love to prepare for the following school year.  I spend time buying new clip art and creating new resources for the classroom.  It's never to early to begin organizing for Back to School, and it makes me enjoy the summer more to know I've begun to feel ready!

Happy Summer!  Now, you can hop to the next stop on the BLOG HOP!  Please click below:

End of the Year...

     As the school year draws to an end, it's a mix of feelings for most students.  Although they will miss school, most students are looking forward to Summer.   For them, Summer means lots more time with their families.  It means going on family vacations and having fun!   They know that they will continue to see their friends during the summer because someone will arrange those play dates for them.   However, for some of our students, school is the safest place they know.  Those students are uncertain what summer will bring... Who will be taking care of them?  Where will they go?  Will they see their school friends?   Some students' behaviors will regress at the end of the school year as they deal with these feelings of uncertainty.  We need to be extra careful to pay attention to these students and to make the end of the school year an enjoyable experience.

Here are a few products to make the End of the Year fun for your students:
