Counting Down the Days {Good Things}

To those of you who are already on summer break:  you are lucky ducks!!  For the rest of us... here is a cute summer countdown idea:
It's colorful and fun!  It's a good thing. :)
Here is a shot of how long it is:
Yup, that's our summer countdown, reaching the floor.  Laugh all you want, I can take it!

I saw the idea for this {using a sun instead of a cloud} while browsing Pinterest.  You can see the original post {here}.  I also found these cute ideas:

It seems like everyone is out or almost out for summer so I'm comforted by the fact that I won't be alone this next month going to school. We aren't out until June 19th! I'm catually glad though because there is so much I want to do with my class still!

I love your count down ideas!

I like all the ideas mentioned. I've always thought that doing this to early took the focus off the task at hand and kind of fed the false notion "Teachers just live for their holidays and Summer". I can see the benefit especially if you have a group of really driven kids.

Sandy said...

ADORABLE ideas (as always!) Thank you!!!! :)

I'm so glad I found your blog! I am a teacher returning this year after 2 years leave to be a SAHM! My blog roll currently consists of mom blogs and craft/sewing blogs. You are my first teaching blog! YAY! I taught 5th, then 3rd for 4 years, and am now moving down to 2nd. I love your ideas!

I just posted about the countdown to the end of the year rainbow chain on my blog. I made it this week for my kiddos with 16 days left. We have been cheering every day when we tear a chain off. What a super cute idea! Thanks for sharing.I am one of your newest followers.

I would like to use your picture in an upcoming blog post. I want to adapt your rainbow chain to use it in a behavior management idea. Would you give your permission for me to use the picture? I would send a link to the post when I finish it also.

Thanks for your consideration!
