Winding Down

I can't believe the end of the year is less than a month away!  Friday we got a glimpse of the heat that is finally headed our way.  We've lucked out so far this year in that department.  It has been quite pleasant here in Maryland.  :)  I am very excited to start our end of the year fun activities!  Last year we "popped" our way through the last 15 days of school.  Finding that idea on Pinterest was a great way to spice up the end of the year.  See my post about the nifty activities we did here. 

Last year I made Summer Space Mission to help motivate my kiddos to keep their skills sharp during the summer.  I tweaked it this year to align it with the Common Core State Standards.  It's free this week in my TpT store!  Check out the preview below and see if it is something you can use for your kids!

Have a great week!  Let the countdown begin!


  1. I stumbled across your TpT page while this packet was free and I LOVE it!! It's super cute and it's a great way to keep my kiddos challenged this summer! Thanks for sharing!!!

  2. Abby, we "popped" our way toward state testing in my room.

    I wanted to say thank you for your Balloon Popping Bash activity. I recently blogged about how I used it in my classroom as a countdown to our state testing. I rave about them (and link to your blog) on my blog--

    Hope you have a chance to stop on by!

  3. I just nominated you for a Liebster Award! Check out my post for more details!

  4. Hi Abby,
    I am working on a Space Week theme on my blog and found your "Summer Space Mission" product. I would love to feature it and include links to your store on my blog - if that's okay with you!!

  5. Hi, I thought that this new teacher-seller website might interest you. They are based in Canada and offer features that are not found on similar sites. They also have a lot of new features coming. Here is a link: Created by Teachers, Exclusively for Teachers

  6. Hi. I love your blog. I found it through TPT. Wanted to also let you know that I linked your free fonts on my blog at:

    Would love if you stopped by. =)

  7. Hi ,

    I happened to chance upon your blog and found it very interesting!

    We have recently launched a science app that uses augmented reality to enhance classroom teaching. The app has 3D models for kindergarten to grade 12. I thought you might want to check it out and may be review it on your blog, if possible.

    It is a paid app(with a few models free) but in case you are interested in trying it out I will be happy to provide you with a free copy.

    The link to the app is: 



    You can also search for the app on the app store as 'Augmenter'.

    Do let me know if you would be interested. I am really Looking forward to your response.

    happy teaching!
