School is Out for Summer and Giveaways!

YEA!!! School is finally over for me!  Many of you are already out and a few of you still have a few more days - but the end is in sight!

Make sure to read to the end of the post to find out about a couple of giveaways that I'm participating in!

One of the things we did in the last few weeks of school was SUMMER CINQUAINS!  I got the idea from HERE from Kelly Ganzenmuller on her TPT store.  


I think I found it on Pinterest and thought it was cute and would be a fun activity as it includes a craft too.  (Goodness knows, there isn't a whole lot of permission time to do crafts as often as I'd like to, so if I can find a way at the end of the year to add it in - it's a good thing!)

I started by explaining what a Cinquain poem is and showed them a few examples.  Then I modeled writing my own for them.  Included in the activity is several pages for writing their poem along with the directions and patterns for the sun.  I told them they could write using the topic summer or a summer related topic like swimming, camping, fishing etc.

Here's our results:



We had fun, we learned about Cinquains and we enjoyed a craft activity - win/win/win!  How did you end your year?
