June Fun Calendar

On the eve of June 1st I can almost taste summer vacation!  However; there are still 12 and 1/2 days of school left with my firsties before it is officially summer.

It is vital to keep my sanity during these hot and sunny days in June.

Bring on the June Fun Calendar!!!

There have been so many variations of these on Pinterest.  I love that each classroom can customize their end-of-year activities to meet their own needs.

Each year my first grade team comes together to update the June Fun Calendar.  We reflect on what worked, and what didn't (and what took FAR too much preparation to do again!)  We try to alternate the time-consuming, heavy prep activities with the easier ones.  We {almost} always save our June Fun Calendar activity for the end of the day.  Of course, the looming reminder "If we don't behave and get our work done, we won't have time for our June Fun Calendar activity" is often repeated throughout the day.  To date, I have not had to "take away" our activity at the end of the day.  

I sent this home with my kiddos today, so that they can be prepared for any days that they need to bring in materials.

This year our "Wet N Wild" day is new.  I'll be sure to let you know how that day goes!

Camp Skeeter is a first grade tradition.  It's our "in-school" field trip to camp.  We spend the day focused on camping activities.  We have different stations, and LOTS of parent volunteers.  More on that day to come!

One of my FAVORITE activities is the Who's That Baby? guessing game.  We ask parents to send in a baby picture of their first grader.  I compile all the pics into a Smart notebook, and we try to guess which baby picture is which first grader.  The kids LOVE to see their pictures on the Smart board.  I included a picture of the letter we sent home to parents if this is something you would like to try with your class.  Feel free to grab any verbiage that might help you!

12 and 1/2 more teaching days left.
