Yesterday was my last day with kids. After two days of post-planning/packing all of my stuff it will be time for summer vacation and I am sooo excited. This year was not a sad last day of school since I'm looping up with my class. Instead it was more like OK well I'll see you after a while. Don't get me wrong I still cherished the hugs as they left but no tears. Usually I cry. I am sad that not everyone is returning to my school in the fall so of course they won't be in next year's class but a majority of the kids will show up again on next year's roster and for that I am thankful.
On my summer break this year I have a small stack of "just for me" books (I don't like to refer to them as adult books because that sounds like they might be inappropriate and what I mean is not a children's book or a school/content book) to read. I also have some favorites that I plan on rereading again this summer. I am hoping to find all of the 4th grade secrets-so if you know any please pass them my way! Last but not least I am hoping to tackle the SSYRA books for the 2013-2014 school year. What about you? Do you have summer plans?
