    24 days where kids are in school..however, we have 2 all day field trips (my class one and then a school wide one), I'm out a day next week, and we have field day the last week, so I guess I'm down to 20 days where my kids are in the room with me..

    24 school days, but 2 field trips, field day, and the last two after Memorial Day (which are make-up days and after grades are turned in...) bring us under 20 actual days of class!

    I'm on Easter break right now and my niece just fixed my May calendar for me. She stopped at May 18 (the last day for my students). Looking at that tiny calendar makes it real. When we start back on Monday we have 12 school days left. (1 of those is field day and 1 is the last day (1/2 day) when most don't come.) I can't believe it's already here!

    First off, for all the craziness that this first year teaching 151 students and 8 different classes, I do not want the school year to end. I'm not ready for it to end-- I'm not ready to let my 6th graders go off to different schools or our upper school. And I'm not ready for my 3rd graders (my babies) to grow up into 4th graders. :)

    Our last day is a half day on June 8th. That leaves us around 34 days. I'm really not ready for summer (and I'm getting married in July)!

    28 and 1/2(the last day). There's a field trip, children's day, and field day in there, and I have a professional day as well. So about 24 and 1/2 that I'll be with my students.

    :) Glad you like it! I make a sign that says "Pick the flowers one by one, before you know it, school is done!" We start it whenever the numbers are right. Each child makes a flower with their number on it and that's the one they "pick". I've also done it with an ice cream cone and scoops of ice cream.
