The end of the year is here my friends! I have only 3 more days with my sweet second graders and I must say it's a bittersweet feeling. I am worn out but I sure am going to miss this group. It is times like this that I'm happy to live in such a small town so I know that I'll see them throughout the summer and into next year.
I've been prepping their EOY gifts. This year I decided to do kites. I found these cute ones at the dollar store. I know that probably won't last long but I like to think that they will! The boys got Madagascar and the girls got rainbow stars. This isn't all I do for them but I wanted to share. You can get the kite tag here. I've included grades 1-4.
Over the last few weeks, we have been winding down. I have been so grateful for my Surfin into Summer Literacy Centers. Last week I put my students into groups and they rotated through different ones each day.
Here they are reviewing pronouns. They had to replace the noun(s) in the sentence with the correct pronoun strip.
Sorting sentences based on punctuation. We review this skill everyday and some still struggle with it.
Working hard on homophones.
Playing dominoes antonym style!
