The Summer ountdown is ON!

Only 13 school days left!! To countdown the days, we are popping one balloon a day and each balloon is filled with something fun/exciting to do that day. We started with 20 days to go and my students are loving it– in fact, they are a tad bit obsessed! On the first day of the countdown, we had a “special animal visitor” and my sister brought her baby bunnies. I sat my students in a circle and let them hop around! They loved them and so did I!

Another day we had Boggle day and they got to play Boggle when they finished their work. I didn’t have time to make the cute Boggle boards I see all over Pinterest, but my document camera worked just as good!

Today we did this fun science experiment with vinegar, baking soda, a bottle, and balloons! Click HERE to check it out.
