Countdown to the End of School...Only We're Counting Down with the Alphabet!

We have 23 1/2 days left of school!  We've been counting down by doing something special with each letter of the alphabet.

A-Bring your favorite stuffed animal

My FAVORITE first grade stuffed animal.  The kids thought it was new!
B-Blow bubbles-too bad it's been raining for the last 50 days (well, that's what it seems like)
C-Card Day

Today, kids wrote a special Thank You card to someone in the school who has helped them.  Of course we added EVERY teachers favorite TREAT....CHOCOLATE.

Here they are at work.

Tomorrow....D...Finishing up dinos so we'll be writing dino facts and eating donut holes.  Maybe we'll do it at the same time!!


  1. WOW!! I love this idea! I would love to see a full list of countdown ideas for the ABC's, as well!

  2. Google Jean Roberts end of year activities. It's the first one that appears. Just scroll down (page 5) and you'll see the list. It also includes poems and other activities.

    The kids have been quite excited about this. It gives them something to look forward to!

    Tomorrow D....writing Dino Facts and eating doughnuts!!
