To begin our day, I wanted our morning work to be a bit more fun, but something that would hold my children's interest for a while. I got this idea from a follow teacher and quickly saw how much fun they would have, so I went with it. I covered their group of desks with bulletin board paper, and I put out washable markers, which they almost never get to use. When they came in I told them they would get to draw all over their area with markers, and they could draw anything they wanted. They absolutely loved it! Here's a picture of one of the group's handiwork.
I thought this was very cute!
As the day went one, we played math games, cleaned our desks and looked through all of our folders before packing them for home. I read stories to them and we worked on our Memory Books. They loved playing our End of Year Scavenger Hunt. They looked for friends who loved or were doing certain things mentioned on the scavenger hunt.

For the End-of-Year party, we made Ice Cream Sundaes, complete with all the toppings! While we enjoyed our sweet concoctions, we watched our End-of-Year photo video, featuring all of my sweet kiddos. After the video, I handed each kid or parent a card with the QR code and link to the End-of-Year photo video, where they can download the video to their own computer.
