The end of the year is here my friends! I have only 3 more days with my sweet second graders and I must say it’s a bittersweet feeling. I am worn out but I sure am going to miss this group. It is times like this that I’m happy to live in such a small town so I know that I’ll see them throughout the summer and into next year.
I’ve been prepping their EOY gifts. This year I decided to do kites. I found these cute ones at the dollar store. I know that probably won’t last long but I like to think that they will! The boys got Madagascar and the girls got rainbow stars. This isn’t all I do for them but I wanted to share. You can get the kite tag here. I’ve included grades 1-4.
Over the last few weeks, we have been winding down. I have been so grateful for my Surfin into Summer Literacy Centers. Last week I put my students into groups and they rotated through different ones each day.
Here they are reviewing pronouns. They had to replace the noun(s) in the sentence with the correct pronoun strip.
Sorting sentences based on punctuation. We review this skill everyday and some still struggle with it.
Working hard on homophones.
Playing dominoes antonym style!

I have also teamed up with Educentswith some instant downloads for you! It includes printables, centers, games, and much more for your finishing first and second graders! It makes learning fun with bubble gum, oceans, QR codes, flip flap books, and more! It’s a mixture of reading, math, and science to keep the kids working hard through the summer and to get them ready for second and third grade!
I have two products featured in the bundle and I’m sure you’ll kids will love them! First up, is my Surfin into Summer centers! You saw a sneak peak of them above. These summer, beach themed literacy centers are perfect for end of the year review. These were made for a 2nd grade classroom but could be adapted for 1st or 3rd grades as well. It includes 8 centers that can be used for small group, whole group instruction (print some of the pages 2/4 to a page and use in a journal), as centers. Here is what you can find inside this unit:
Surfs Up: a noun and verb review game
Luau Fun: a synonym match activity
Fishing for Antonyms: an antonym review domino game
Flip Flopping Homophones: a homophone match activity
Searching for Seashells: a roll and cover adjective and adverb game
KABOOM! is the one game that I always say every teacher needs in their classroom. It is so versatile and can be used with anything. This is my students absolute favorite game to play and they never get tired of it. I have games made for all subject areas. Read all about this class favorite! ---> bit.ly/KABOOMClassroomGame...

One year, we read a story about a little girl who flew around the world and saw many different things, one of which was the Statue of Liberty. When the students were asked to name something she saw on her journey, a little boy said the Spatula Delivery! Too cute!
