on tonight's blog hop. :-)

Living in Florida definitely has it's perks. Good weather, flip flops almost year round, lovely beaches! I can't complain much!! Folks, I don't know about you, but I am in full SUMMER mode! I'm ready for some stress free days of bumming it on the beach, and the flip flops are on as we speak!

Here are some summery creations that I would like to share with you:

First, I am gearing up for some summer fun! Every year on the last week of school, we do a summer themed day each day of the week! My class loves this every year!! I don't know who it's more enjoyable students or me! This is one of my summer themed days that we do...WATERMELONS!!! If you are ready for some summer fun, come and check this out! It has several math and literacy activities that are watermelon themed, including fact families, ABC order, sums, thinking maps, writing pages, nouns/verbs/adjectives, watermelon taste testing, a watermelon seed spitting contest (yes I said seed spitting contest!), measurement with seeds and MORE...

Next up is a FREEBIE! As you can tell, I am a little majorly obsessed with flip flops right now!! Here is a simple flip flop writing/craftivity freebie for your students to make as we wind yet another year down. It includes brainstorming pages, several writing options, a word search, and an ABC order page.  Here is a picture of this craftivity in action!
