Day 171- I could just cry!

The year is almost over! Just one day left, then I set my first graders free for the summer. Words can not express how much I have loved this year. (Absolutely NO sarcasm here!) My students this year have been the best! I'm going to miss then- especially since I am being moved to 3rd grade next year. *tear*

Well today we cleaned, and cleaned, and cleaned. My students made out like bandits! I finally got around to giving out the free products I collected at the International Reading Association Conference earlier this month.

These students took home the tote bags.

 There were teachers waiting in line and acting like it was 5am on Black Friday morning just to get this bag! It's cute, but it's not worth losing a toe over!

 This bag reminded my kids of Angry Birds. I'm not sure what it really is.

 Love, love, love Jan Brett! I was unable to get this bag myself, but a fellow teacher (from Texas) had an extra and was willing to share! I love Texas!

 This was actually sent to us from our Junior Achievement representative. But we love it!

This was the tote given to all participants in the Conference. I do love a good tote!

I didn't get the pictures of all the other things given away. There was plenty for all!

As I was going through my room, I came across some random art supplies. So, we made necklaces.

Tomorrow is 5th grade graduation, Kindergarten promotion, and cleaning day for the rest of the school. On the plus side, we have a Student vs. Teacher kickball game tomorrow afternoon! Yours truly will be the MC. I can't wait!
