End Of The Year- It's Survival Mode!

It's April!  That means June will be here READY OR NOT! We are taking Field Trips, have Mother's Day around the corner, Graduation, End of the Year memory books and say it loud: SUMMER!!!!! You are CrAzY if you are not already thinking of SUMMER! So don't forget that with the end of the year comes making sure our kids are ready for the next school year.  That means when they leave us for SUMMER they will forget everything unless you have them working all summer long.  Who's going to do that?!? A little one who is bribed by CAKE!  That's right- we are NOT above bribes.  Tell them if they do the summer homework packet daily over the summer they get a treat when brought back.  We are not talking about a measly ol' calendar you send home for each month.  We are talking about a packet that is the best review packet of everything they need going into 1st grade: reviewing sight words, reading, math and writing every day and bring it back to you the first week of school next year then they get a big HUG from their old teacher and a hostess cupcake. WIN WIN WIN!  THEY win 'cause da' so smart, you win 'cause the 1st grade teachers will see what a CrAzY, awesome teacher you are that your kids retained everything you taught them.  Booya!  So get your hands on everything you need to make your end of the year a success and a blast!
