Countdown to the last day of school

We are in the final stretch of school and have been draggin' butt with grades, tests, and long writing assignments.  I decided that we need a little pick-me-up to get us through the final days of school.

Check out what the kids saw on Tuesday morning as they walked into our class...
Their eyes nearly popped out and nobody could close their mouth.  It was hilarious to watch everyone round the corner and stop halfway in the door.

I have 22 balloons hanging from the ceiling for each child in my class.  Each balloon has a small strip of paper with a quick but very fun activity for the kids to do that day.  We count down the days by popping one balloon a day and doing the activity inside.  The balloon is popped by the child whose name is written on the crepe paper streamer taped to the balloon.  Some of the activities I have are "Play hot potato" or "Shaving cream creations".  They all take less than 15 minutes but the kids get super excited each day to see what they get to do.  It's a blast!

This week was also Teacher Appreciation week.  My kids and parents were amazing!  I feel so spoiled and very much appreciated.  I don't think I could have dreamed up a better group of kids to have during this time in my life.  They are so special and loving which is a good thing because this momma is starting to really look forward to relaxing by the pool all summer!
