I read a blog post yesterday by Sean Farnum, “I Like My Year End to Be Too Busy.” He jam-packs the last month of school with engaging and connecting activities and projects to keep his students learning and wanting to come to school. He even jokes about postponing the end of the year because there is so much going on. I complained of spring fever this week, so this struck me as something I might do with my kindergarten students.

- Make Earth Day every day in May and June. We will be sharing our Earth Day experiences with our Iowa pen pals. Plus, we’ll be continuing our campaign of “Our School, Our Earth,” so we’ll have lots to do.
