1. We used Science for Kids' Gummy Bear Lab as part of our 21st Century Summer school. It was great, even if I had to remind my students 23445 times that we can't eat our experiments.
2. Another teacher did a lemonade stand with the 1st and 2nd graders, and invited all the summer school sessions to come. She taught the kids so many great skills around selling and making lemonade. She even convinced the manager of a 50's diner to give her those cute little caps!
3. We used the number-nametag activity this week, which was super simple and really fun! I have kids who are ready for division and some who are not out of subtraction, so I tried to strategically place labels based on who was friends with whom. You can do it with math facts, sight words, periodic table elements, whatever!
4. Continuing the fun, my kids have been working hard on their Go-Noodle skills! We've learned the Funky Chicken, Hammer-Time, and the Robot. We also do yoga every morning with Maximo. They were so thrilled when they reached level 5 and got to choose a new champ. #lovemystudents
