At the beginning of the year I showed my reading tracker that matched my super hero theme. Students move themselves up as they grow in reading levels. Here's how it looked at the end of the year. I've seen a lot of people that are using super heroes as their theme next year. I'll try to find the template my husband drew for our super students in case anyone would like it.
While we got out of school fairly early, I had a five day break before summer school started. I wish we could make enough during the regular year so I didn't have to work summer school. Very jealous of those working on projects and reading and relaxing their days away. At least I'll get all of July off!
Also, we got a new dog! My husband showed me a shelters website and it just broke my heart. Last Thursday we went out there to look at one dog, and came home with another. He's been a great addition so far. Meet our new cutie, Woody! :)
