Unofficial Start of Summer

Memorial Day weekend is here; where did the year go?!?  The kiddos I had in third grade my second year of teaching are graduating today (makes me feel old!) and my current crew of kiddos graduates from kindergarten Wednesday.  Wednesday is also our last day of school for kids.  This year flew by!

My experience this year has been nothing short of amazing.  I love that my students have had the opportunity and desire to help others throughout the year and have grown in ways that a test score will not show.  I'm definitely sad to see this class go, but I look forward to seeing all they accomplish over the next several years.

On a fun note, get your summer started on the right foot by visiting my friend, Diane's, blog, Spreading Joy, One Giggle at a Time.  She recently had a blog redesign and is having a giveaway to celebrate.  Her social stories on TpT are great for K and 1st grade kiddos.

As we celebrate summer this Memorial Day weekend, thanks to all those heroes who have served our country and become the real reason we celebrate Memorial Day.
