Anyway, this week we celebrated with a 2nd Grade Luau. The kids were actively engaged. We had 5 rotation stations. I , of course, had the limbo and hula hoop station. We jammed out to some Beach Boys and Chubby Checker. Old school, I know, but the kids didn't seem to mind it. I was completely exhausted from doing the activities with them. My class told me about all of the other stations and how much they really enjoyed themselves. The other stations included face painting, snow cones, corn hole, and beach ball volleyball. I have always had Luau Day for the past 6 years and every year I have students who come back and visit and always remember our Luau Day. It just melts my heart!
My sweet assistant and me! The 2nd Grade Team got these cool shirts from US Toy for $5.
I wish I could post pics of how cute my kiddos looked. They went all out with sunglasses, leis, hula skirts, etc.
Next week, me and a few of my colleagues will be presenting at our county Expo for STEM. We will be pulling everything together that we have been using with our kids to extend their ability to learn with technology. I know we will ROCK it! I also have to pack up my room and help another 2nd grade friend pack as she moves on to 3rd grade. She is such an amazing and inspiring teacher and has been by my side since I came to the school. I don't know how I am going to survive without her!
Hope your last week was filled with more laughs than tears! Keep checking in throughout the summer for tips, tricks, and ideas I will be using in my classroom for 2013-2014.
