Two Weeks Until Break

We have two weeks until we break for our two week long spring vacation. This means that the students are pretty tired, the teachers are pretty tired and we're slogging our way through to the end. On the other hand, my students and I are doing some exciting things, so we're tired but happy.

Some of the things we've been doing:
  • Solar system in your pocket. This was an amazing way to really understand how BIG it is out there. The kids took these home and showed their parents and generally had a great time showing off their understanding :)
  • Reader's Workshop. This week is the first week they need to write a letter to me about a book they've read, so we'll be going through that this week.
  • Poem in your Pocket is this Friday, so we need to write and read some more poetry!
What do you do in the lead up to vacations? How do you keep the 'get me to the holidays now' feeling to calm?
