What a year it has been...I read a quote online today where someone compared the end of this school year to unpacking from a vacation you never took...Such a weird, sad end of the year. I've been trying to find a way to celebrate all of the hard work my students have done and mark the beginning of summer. I wanted to get my students a little gift and celebrate their transition to first grade. In the past, the first grade intervention specialist and I would do a "Growing to First" activity. You can read about it and grab the freebies to do this activity here. To adapt this activity to the current situation, I record myself reading Little Seed's Journey and completed the activity as much as possible. I emailed the link of the video to parents and included a QR Code linked to the video in students' gift bags.
