I can't believe I only have a few days left with my kiddos! This year has flown by, although these last few days seem to be crawling. I started putting together my students' end of the year gifts. I decided to keep it simple, yet cute, this year.
I stopped by my local dollar store and purchases green and blue cups and crazy straws. Last night I wrote all my students' names on the cups.
Inside the cups I will put the straws and my 'Summer Survival Kit'. I was able to pick up a few items for the survival kit from the dollar store, but I still need to get the candy.
I plan to put the survival kit in a bag, tie the adorable label on top, and stick it in the cup.

What else have I been up to? I just picked out the awards I am going to give each child. We have our Awards Day next week. My school makes it into a big celebration. All of 2nd grade will go to the cafeteria, sing a song (Diamonds - Kidz Bop Version), watch a slide show of pictures from the year, and finally receive a few specialty awards [Honor Roll, Math Superstars, and Million Minutes]. Then, everybody, including parents, head back to the classroom. I give out my classroom awards while the parents look at the students writing (aka our Authors and Artist celebration). Yes, that's a lot for one morning!
Anyways, I snazzied up my awards from last year. For the next three days (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) they will be on sale at my TPT store! Get your set now! The set includes 31 different awards with 2 versions of each award. Usually they are $3, but they will be 15% off! Click the picture below to check them out.
