End of the year sharks

I have recently moved to WordPress and I am still learning how to use my blog.

This is going to be my first post 😉

I want to share our end of the year with you.  We have had a great end of second grade. I had a great group and I will miss them next year.

Every year our whole school does a theme. We all decorate doors and halls. Last year it was The Circus. I loved this theme. This year we did water. Each grade focused on a different thing. We chose Oceans.

First we painted and decorated paper. The kids drew some ocean creatures while the other teacher and I used the painted paper to create shapes. We used this patterns to help them.

We also did a shark craft I found on pinterest. It was so easy that I did not give them patterns, they did on their own. I like seeing all the different faces they created.

Our end of the year trip was a night in the Aquarium. It was awesome and I loved that all my students were able to attend. I think that this was the best way to end our year together. It was a wonderful experience. I did not sleep but I enjoyed every minute.



The kids were thrilled to sleep with sharks. But before going we studied sharks.


I always try to make a cute end of the year gift that is meaningful to them, and this year I found the best one!

I bought these pencil pouches the weekend after the trip. And I saved these sharks them for two months! I also added a personalized bookmark by the Brown Bag Teacher. You can get them here, they are free.
