Count down to Summer Vacation!
Normally I don't do a count down for the last day of school before vacation, but when I saw this idea on Pinterest which came from Jackie's blog called "Here We Go Loopty Loo", I knew I had to try it with my 4th graders.
First, I typed up some fun notes to put inside the count down balloons. Each day I picked one student to POP our balloon to see what activity we were going to do, or what little treat they might get. My 4th graders LOVED this!!! Everyday, they were begging to be the one to POP the balloon, and they even wanted to keep the little note that was inside. =)
Here are some of the pictures of the notes I came up with, and some pictures of our count down balloons.
