This is part of what it means when teachers have their "summers off."
Fellow teachers, we've finished up another year. As you pack your classroom away, what ideas are floating around in the back of your head for next fall? Curriculum mapping? Organizing materials? Creating new centers? Or are you simply taking summer one day at a time, with the goal of sleeping in every day possible?
No matter how I try to leave all things kindergarten in the classroom over the summer, I inevitably find myself pinning new ideas and inspiration to my Pinterest boards, buying additions to or replacements for my class library and manipulatives, and dreaming up new ways to use familiar spaces that will engage my students as they explore their world and curricular concepts. Thankfully, I have The Nine Year Old to spend summer with, and our plans for the next eight weeks include tending our garden.
We're already enjoying strawberries:
What do you have planned for the summer?
