ABC Countdown

I kept a few favorites from my countdown days last year.  Here's an example of my letter home...

I love this idea! Do you get any parent help or donations?

Mrs. Saoud said...

I have parents contribute.

This is such a great idea! Do you have to get approval from your admin? We have the CRCT (our state assmt) coming up soon, but if I work around it I think the admin would love the idea!

Mrs. Scoma said...

So fun!! Great ideas :-)

We have our assessments this week and FCAT Writes before the countdown. Second grade needed approval since K-1 are the only grades allowed to wear PJs. They loved the idea that was shared at a grade level meeting a few years back and has become a traditional end of the year activity for many of our primary classrooms.

I'm jealous that you are so close to the end! We have 37 days to go so this is a great idea that I'll be able to use in a few weeks! At our catholic school we'll need to change a few items to stay within our dress code but I'm really excited. The last 5 years I've done a theme a days for the last week and that has always been fun....can't wait to extend it!

p.s. I just wrote a post for you about putting a little "like" into your life (and posts) like you had asked about in your doublegiveaway comments. :)
