Another Five for Friday!

  Oh, man!  My students have been possessed by little monsters!  I don't know why after 163 days of school, they are back to testing the limits!  I pulled out all my tricks this week and am exhausted!  I want to go to bed early but had to link up again with Doodle Bugs.

It was an ice cream kind of day!  My team went to Dairy Queen for lunch today and I got a Heath Blizzard.  Hello Friday!
My youngest daughter had her last day of 3-year-old preschool last night. 
Here she is with her teacher.

The ABC Countdown continues with

P is for Picnic and Performance.  Kids brought in their own snack and drink to eat outside.  Then kids could do a performance of some kind.
Here were some of the highlights.
The girl in pink wrote a play (The 3 Little Kittens) and asked the others to perform.

 His "talent" was to take a block and swing it like a baseball bat.  He hit a home run!
The Baby Dance.  No idea.  The other kids loved it though.  Who knew?
Queen and King Day.  We were going to borrow the idea of having separate days from my friend Amanda Pauley but our rescheduled field trip ended up on K day.   During the morning the Queens were first and got special treatment.  The afternoon was for the Kings.  It was a lot of fun!

  We made hand print queen and king puppets.  They turned out pretty cute!
Reading Rocks!  We painted rocks and added eyes and hair BUT I forgot my camera.  Doh!
Silly Sock Day!
Today was teacher day.  We used this book from Maria at KinderCraze.

Finally, today was the day we have been waiting for...our placements for next year!  I am so happy that I will be in kindergarten again next year!

    Thanks for visiting my blog! I'm a new follower. We had so much fun with our sweet little guinea pig. Love your ideas! I'm teaching a K/1 next year. I have taught both kindergarten and first grade but I'm always looking for fresh ideas.
