The Final Countdown

Well I'm on my final countdown of the school year.  10 more school days.   I will miss my students but I am so ready for summer vacation.  When I first started teaching a teammate of mine said teachers were like a block of  cheese. We start off the year as a whole block of cheese.  Throughout the year with meetings, new curriculum changes, parent/teacher conferences, etc. we start to get some holes.  By the end of the year we are like a block of swiss cheese.   Teachers need the summers to decompress so in Aug. we are back to ourselves that whole brick of cheese.

This year I definetly feel like a block of swiss cheese, and I'm looking forward to some time to decompress.

Tomorrow starts our 10 day final countdown with the students and it is Making Airplane day.  So to make this educational I created some worksheets to go with this idea.  I was planning on selling a packet of these ideas, but I ran out of time.  So I am giving you the link to my first idea.  Maybe over the summer I will have the time to put everything together to sell as a packet.  So for now it is free so be sure to grab it now.

And here's a youtube video to go with Making Airplane Day.
