Countdown to the Last Day of School


So many of you lucky educators are already out on summer vacation! Congrats!However, I am not yet and my kiddos and I are on the countdown. I saw this idea the other day on Teri's post at A Cupcake for the Teacher and thought my students would just eat it up. We made a colorful rainbow paper chain with the number of days left in school. I labeled the cloud "Days Until We Are 3rd Graders" to get them super excited.At the end of each school day, I choose a different student to tear off one of the paper chains and everyone cheers and claps. It is so super cute and gets them even more excited for the next school 
year.

 I took a picture of this and put it in my May Ideas notebook so I will remember to do it again next year. It is super easy to make and a huge motivation and happy moment each day for the kids!
