Hello Friends and Families!
I know its only been a little over a week since we were all together as a class, but I miss you all already! Our last day was full of fun! From the anticipation of the party, the gift's, the summer bag, the concert, and finally our last hugs and goodbyes! Our day was a whirlwind!
We had a very successful end of the year party! We owe HUGE thanks to Mrs. Zwilling, Mrs. Slominski, Mrs. Doty, Mrs. Pitteroff, Mrs. Pinnell, Mrs. Grove, Mrs. Jantonio, and Miss Frazier who donated their time in managing our party. Of Course, all of you who sent in the yummy food, your donations made a huge difference for our kids! From water balloon T-ball, to noodle hockey, to sand art, the party was a smash!
On the last day of school your first grader brought home a decorated white bag and several sheets of paper. These papers have summer fun ideas either typed out or hidden in the QR code! Your first grader knows how to scan the QR code (just download a QR code reader on your tablet) or type in the address on the card. Either way you'll end up with a fun and exciting adventure on your hands! Please, note the kids became very savvy with technology this year and should be able to do all these things independently. Links shared are kid friendly and all You tube links were sent via safe link so you can feel confident allowing them to explore while you make dinner or other daily chores!
The items on the sheet are made to be cut into individual cards. Once they're cut apart, place them all in the bag and each day grab one card to keep you brain charged! We don't want any learning to drip out, as Justin said, "That's the saddest thing I ever heard of, all our learning dripping out of our brains."
No matter how you do it, keep them reading and writing for fun and with purpose! We DID LOTS of things to fire them up for summer, keep it going strong!
