I thoroughly enjoyed changing the calendar to June before I left school on Friday. There was something a little satisfying about only putting up 14 numbers (June 14th is our last day). I love teaching, but there’s something about the month of May that just drags on endlessly. To start the month off right I’m linking up with Farley:
May has not been filled with sunshine. This is very unfortunate because we are studying air and weather and it’s difficult to take your class outside for weather experiments when the weather is not cooperating! We had a rainy week so it was wonderful to get to go outside this evening with my daughter and just play outside for a couple of hours.
I started creating my summer wish list for reading. Here is what’s near the top:
I am so ready for summer break. I’m not even traveling anywhere exciting this summer, but I still consider it a vacation! My essentials for a great summer vacation are flip flops, sleep, and memories. I hate shoes and socks, but love flip flops during summer weather!
The next thing I love most about vacations is the fact I can sleep in. I used to be the girl who could sleep in until noon on the weekends. This amazing thing happened – I had a baby and now I’m lucky if I can sleep in past 8:00 (usually 7:30). I don’t care – I’ll take it!
Finally, the thing I’m most looking forward to this summer is making memories with my daughter. She recently turned two and is at a fun age where she will really enjoy the zoo, aquarium, nature hikes, playground, etc. I can’t wait to see her face light up with all of our little adventures!
Don’t forget to head on over to Farley’s blog to see what everyone is currently up to!
I finished up a new book companion for Vikings, which is the nonfiction companion to Viking Ships at Sunrise (book 15 in the Magic Tree House series). I also created a bundle of the two resources. Click on either of the links below to learn more.
