End of the Year Pictures and 5 Products that Were Life-Savers This Year

My last official day was Friday, and what a day it was! Graduation and Awards Ceremony is on Monday, then two teacher briefing days and I board a plane back to the U.S. My husband and I decided to get Wesley a brand new teddy bear to hug and snuggle on the plane. Kris (my husband) will not be able to come with us and we know that Wes will have a really hard time, so we are hoping that a new lovie will make the flight much easier for him! This will probably be my last blog post in Delhi, since there is a TON of stuff to get done before we leave. Once I get over jetlag, I will be right back on here blogging away. :)

Five Products that were Life-Savers this Year:
This was AMAZING for my unit on the Solar System. My kids loved the lapbooks :)
My kiddos love Magic Treehouse. We LOVED the passports in this pack! The kids read through all books in reading groups and then answered the questions in their groups and then got a stamp for their passport. This was a lot of fun :)

There are some amazing and funny poems in this pack! It has EVERYTHING and it was wonderful for Poetry Month! Check it out :)
This was a super managable way to keep track of where my students were throughout the year. It was so wonderful to have this all sitting in a binder and all I had to do was pull out each different assessment at the end of the units :)
This unit was so fun! We made a ton of these projects and invited the parents of our students to come to the Museum when it was finished. Such an amazing way to learn about Ancient Egypt :)

Thank you to all you fabulous teachers who make amazing products on TPT! :) What were some of your life-saver products from this year?

Five For Friday

I am linking up with Doodle Bugs for her Five for Friday. :)

Number #1
My kiddos finished their travel brochures yesterday and they are adorable! They had to include the name of the planet, fun facts about the planet, pictures of the planet (both silly and normal), a testimony from their favorite fictional character, things to see, and things to pack. 

Testimony from Junie B Jones

Number #2
One of my students wrote a sweet journal entry of wanting to be a teacher when she grows up:

Number #3

This week is our last week of school! Our elementary staff is running an activity week as a big celebration for all the hard work of our students! I am so excited for the fun activities that are coming :) 

Number #4

I have talked a lot about Sonita, (not her real name) my ten year old who lived as a beggar under the flyover until last year, she came into grade 3 reading at a KG level and is now reading at level "Q" in the A-Z Readers! She has only learned English in the last 10 months and could hardly write this year and that lovely story about being a teach was written by her last week! I am so blown away by her progress :) 


A sweet note that I found in one of my students "Exit Thoughts" Journal! :) This is why I do it!!!
