Monday-we'll have Beach Day---which is just a fancy word for Field Day. Our school doesn't do a traditional all school field day, so pretty much each grade does their own, if they want. We have parents help and then also invite parents for lunch, outside. In the afternoon we watch Finding Nemo. We used to make "sand" with some gummy sharks hiding inside, but we are no longer allowed to give food to the kids. period. By the way-if you need a tool to help organize/get parents to help and/or RSVP----check out SIGNUPGENIUS.COM! FREE! So easy to use. I highly recommend it. We used it many times this year. It's just PERFECT!
Tuesday-we are going camping! I made up a packet to go along with this day. First, I'm going to transform my room. I have no camping gear, so everything will be made of paper! I'll post pics after we have the day. I'm going to make a tent cover my rug, where we'll sit and listen to stories. This "tent" will start at the ceiling (attaching it to the ceiling somehow---clothespins possibly, and taping it to the floor---I'll use brown. It'll be open in the front and back. So---for you visuals.... umm... it'll be an upside down V) I'll have paper "campfires" at each of my groups. I have 5 tables that go around the rug, that is in the center of my room. I created a packet that I will put up on TPT. It includes writing, reading and math activities that will fill your day of camping fun.
Wednesday-I have a meeting all day----so I'll have a sub!!!! AHHH! It's going to be our Charlotte's Web Day. Hopefully I will finish the book before that day!!!!!
Thursday-is our Bear day where we have the kids come to school with their bears. We break up the classes into there 2nd grade classes and they go from class to class with bear activities. I usually do jump rope. Not sure if I'll do that again or not this year.
Friday---is our Step Up Day. We meet our new kids for next year. Afterwards is a game of volleyball--teachers vs. 6th graders. We'll be working on our memory books on this day.
The following Monday---is their last day! We have them for about 3 hours, so we'll continue to work on the memory books and clean up the last bits we need to.
What do you do during your last week of school?? Maybe there's a linky out there for it already! I might need to search.
