The benefit of being in school on June 14th

There is one benefit to still being in school on June 14th and that is Flag Day!  At our school we LOVE this particular patriotic holiday!  The whole school gathers outside for an assembly and I get to see the cutest red white and blue dressed kids in the universe!  Who knew ther were SO many stars and stripes dresses?

Hanging with Piggy and Gerald while waiting to go outside!

Red, white and blue was everywhere!

Even on the flip flops!

flag shirts were very popular

First grade at the whole-school assembly.

Old Glory

 The kindergartners and first graders sing "You're a Grand Old Flag" and they do a fantastic job!  (There are even hand this one)

 Happy Flag Day America!

Summer Book Study

Hey everyone!
I am still chugging along in first grade but only have 14 school days left!

The great thing about those 14 days is that:
1 is field day
1 is a field trip
1 is a personal day
1 is the talent show there is not a lot of teaching time left.

The bad thing about there only being 14 days left is:
21+ reading records
sight word checks
21 x 3 DBQ's to do
required expository task to do

Wow....I am goingt o be busy!

Looking forward to summer, I wanted to share the book that a group of us will be working through this summer.

Is everyone out there as crazy about the Common Core as I am?  I feel like I know very little about it and it is SO important!  Has anyone had any experiences with this or any other Common Core Book?
