Father's Day, End of the Year, and a Freebie

Hi again ----- hello ---- anybody still there??  

I know I've been somewhat absent the last couple weeks, but I have a little present for those of you who continue to come back for more.  I just wanted you to know that I appreciate your visits so much!  Keep reading to get your freebie :)

I'm really just here for a super quick update of what I have been doing and will be doing as our school year winds down.  Yes, I do realize that there are some schools who might be on summer vacation already.  If that's you, just know that I'm super jealous - we still have 19 days left!  Ugh!!!  

As we all know the end of the year is jam-packed.  With all the testing, paperwork, and last minute cramming to get everything in --- it can be soooo exhausting!  So if you're anything like me you start finding ways to make life a little easier for yourself.  In my last couple weeks of school I will be digging up some things from last year, using some of the new things I made, and also getting some Ah-mazing little items that I picked up from some of my favorite bloggers ready too.  

Here's a quick rundown of how I will be surviving my end of the year craziness:

Father's Day

I just finished a little pack I will be using for Father's Day this year.


It includes a gift book, tool box craftivity, and a couple printables.  My husband really liked this one so I might be making it with my little girls for him for Father's Day too!  At least I already know he likes it :)


 I also bundled it together with my Flowers for Mom Mother's Day pack for a great discount.


End of the Year

For the end of the year I will using my Farewell Firsties pack from last year.  


This pack saved my butt last year when I was grasping for fun activities to keep us happy as the temperatures were rising and our motivation was falling.  If you want to see more of this pack, you can CLICK HERE to go to a blog post from last year.   I also have a Kinder and 2nd Grade version of this pack in my store now too.  

I've also enlisted the help of some of my blogging buddies and scored these perfect packs:


  


And finally, to keep some order in the classroom I try to keep as much routine as I can.  This means that we keep truckin' along with literacy centers and math centers.  I made some buggy math centers to go over some skills that really needed to be reviewed before the year was out:



But I still needed some literacy centers and I found the BEST pack to keep us going.  Sarah is a lifesaver!!!!  Even though these are for May, they can continue right into June too.  


AND FINALLY....

One last center JUST FOR YOU!!!  

Here is a lemonade themed math center FREEBIE.  
Again, another skill that my kiddos needed to practice and maybe yours do too :)

Happy end of the year my friends!  
I hope I was able to provide one little bit of sanity for you with an item I suggested or with this freebie.  
Thanks for stopping by :)
