Summer Bucket List

The time from the beginning of the year until Christmas seems to drag by, but the rest of the year FLIES!  I can't believe it is time to pack it up and send off my firsties!  Anyone who says teachers get their summers off is crazy!  I am linking up with Teri, Hadar, and April for my summer bucket list linky.

#1 - duct tape on pencils to keep them at my reading table and in different centers

#2 - I saw this next idea many times last summer, but I didn't get around to it.

#3 - We use Reading A-Z for our reading groups and occasionally for a whole group lesson.  I love this idea on how to organize books for the bookshelf by groups!

#4 - I think this is a fabulous idea!  I would love to make this for my room and one for home!

#5 - Several teachers in my building have a Pinterest party once a month and take turns sharing a craft and some yummy food.  Last month we made cards and I remembered how much I enjoy it!  It has been pushed to the back burner for many years, but this summer I'm heading back to the craft room!

My question to you - what's on your summer bucket list?
