Summer is a'coming!!! I have only 10 1/2 days left with my students, which means we'll be starting our 10-day balloon countdown on Tuesday! Some of us have gotten together to share some of our tips and freebies with you to help your summer countdown end smoothly!
My summer countdown tip is....Don't start your countdown too soon or begin tearing down your room. I like to do a 10-day countdown or less. Students are already beginning to check out, and once they see bulletin boards being torn down or things being packed up, you might as well call it a year, because they will! Keep your students engaged in learning until the end.

You may also like this summer countdown that I used to use before I started doing the balloon countdown! You can also download it for free!
Another tip to ending your year smoothly, is to get a head start on next year so you're not so overwhelmed come August or September! I'm going to help you do just that, by giving you a chance to win this USB Flashdrive Bracelet loaded with products for next year!!
Two winners will be chosen! Bracelets will be loaded with 6 products of your choice from my store and shipped directly to you! Unfortunately, this giveaway is only open to U.S. residents!
Cheers to a smooth ending and a happy summer!!
