Summer Vacations Week 1

I just came back from my Family Vacations at Disney World! We spent a week at the magical world and it was great! My kids had a great time with their cousins and both grandmas.

Here are some pics of the magical week!

Mickey Mouse surprised my little ones with a small gift every morning!

"It's a Small World" is one of my favorite rides!!! I am still singing the song!!

I love Cinderella's Castle!!

A lot of fun at Animal Kingdom!

The Beauty and the Beast Castle is beautiful!! And we had the opportunity to eat lunch there!! It was a great experience!

We could not leave without meeting Anna & Elsa!

A couple of weeks ago I made a summer wish list and now I can check out wish #1 (enjoy my vacations without thinking about school) ;)

Now I need to keep checking out items form my list!

Before I leave,  I would like you to visit Bilingual Teacher Clubhouse. I am one of the authors of this great blog full of bilingual resources! 

Have a great week!

Last day of school!

Friday was my last day of school and it was FUN!!
I promised my kids pancakes for the last day of school. They didn't  forget about my promise, so here you have it! 

We watched Frozen and had breakfast with delicious pancakes!! ;)

I always give my students a surprise on the last day. This year I made baggies with bubbles, Popsicles, crayons & markers.

The best part of the surprise was the BUBBLES!!!

My 9th year of teaching is officially over, now I need to get ready to have fun with my wonderful family!

But before, I would like to invite you to visit my friend Krista at The Second Grade Superkids! She invited me, and a couple of teachers to share games we play in the classroom! Go check it out! 

Have fun!

Memory Books

We have been working with our Memory Books the last couple of days. This year, I wanted to add something different and show my students how much progress they made during the year!

I have been planning this activity since the beginning of the year.  I asked my students to draw a picture of themselves the very first day of school and I saved it. 

Today I asked them to draw a picture of them on their last day of school in first grade. When they were done with their picture, I showed them their very first picture they drew the first day of school. They were in shock of their progress... and me too!!
Here are some of their pics!

Here are pics of some of their final work!

I love these pictures of Mrs. Rivera!!!

We had a great year together!!! Now we are ready to enjoy the sun and have more fun!

You can download the template for the front cover {HERE} for free!

Have fun!

Ready for my last week!

Last week of school is already here!
I have planned a fun week ahead! I just have two full days as the rest three days will be half days! 
My plan is to have as much fun as I can with my almost second graders this last week! Here are some pics of the activities we are going to be doing.

I am going to let them write about their accomplishments in first grade!

We also going to spend a couple of days writing about our excited year together!

 I think that these two activities plus all the activities the school have, will make a great closure for our school year!

I hope you have a great ending to your school year! 

You can find these activities in English & Spanish {HERE}, {HERE} & {HERE}.

Have fun!
