Happy Summer, everyone!
It has been the BUSIEST spring of my life with my baseball playing son finishing his senior year of high school! I thought I'd share a little bit of what I have been working on in June in my few spare moments so I have hooked up with Tara at 4th Grade Frolics for my first "Monday Made It" of the summer! Make sure to click the image below to take you to the link up to see all the other great ideas people are sharing this week!
The main thing I have been working on this spring has been survival--surviving the end of the school year (I finished June 9), finishing the baseball season (We finished last Tuesday with a loss in the State Semifinals), finishing my son's senior year/graduation, and FINALLY--his grad party on Saturday. I thought I'd share a few things I made to make the day as special as I could! It was a great day...although certainly bittersweet.
The party. First o all, it seemed silly to spend $9 on a banner when I could make one, right?
Ummmm...several hours later and probably $5 worth of ink and card stock, world's LONGEST congratulations sign was born.
With temperatures pushing 90 degrees and so much food that you should ALL have come, we had a great day. I am so blessed that my son had an amazing high school experience with great friends and family. It was quite a celebration.
Because I've been so busy, I haven't had much time for working on school things...but I am trying to get more intervention materials ready for the fall, so I did get one new game ready to roll. Tomorrow I plan to blog a little about what "structuring" is and how important it is for our students. This game is meant to help reinforce those concepts so stop back tomorrow and learn more about it!
Thanks as always to Tara for hosting this fun link up...and I am excited to be back blogging a bit more regularly now! Happy summer to all of you--and for those of you not quite finished yet, the end is in sight!
