Last Day Blues and Dancing

Oh, what a sad day!  It was our last day as a first grade class.  I've been so fortunate to have such an amazing group of kids.  They all deserve a break!

We spent some time together this morning, I handed out their Summer Survival Kits, and then we had an assembly.  It tugged at my heart seeing some of my boys (who act macho) getting teary eyed knowing the school year was over!

Here's a link to a FUNNY video our assistant principal put together.  He went around interviewing kiddos on what they planned on reading over the summer.  Little did they know (until they watched the video today)....there was some dancing in the background.  This reminds me of The Ellen Show's Dance Dare.

I LOVE that my school finds ways to have a bit of fun.  I'm even dancing here!  I'm with my ed tech holding up OTES.  Haha.

Whatcha Reading?

  2. Ha! That was so cute! My two year old was dancing along and cracking up when a teacher popped up and started dancing. Thanks for sharing :)

  3. That is so funny!!!! What a great idea!!! I bet the kids really got a kick out of it. LOVE IT!

  4. Oh my goodness! That was so cute and hilarious! I miss all of the students and staff at OTES!! I hope you all have a wonderful summer. :)
