Hello darlings! There are only five days of school left! Ahhh! While I am usually ecstatic and jumping for joy, this year I am sad. I think it has to do with losing my mom 2 months ago and the fact that these kids show me unconditional love everyday! I will miss all of their sweetness and whining! I just hope I can keep myself busy this summer and fill my mind with other things.
On a happier note, I finally finished Multiplication and Division Boot Camp!! OMG! This went so much better than I ever imagined! The kiddos LOVED it! One of my
kiddos soldiers even told me today that she was so excited that she made Sergeant that she was all tingly inside!
So how does it work? I give soldiers a pretest to see which facts they already have mastered. Soldiers have daily drills (timed tests) and daily P.T. (homework with flashcards). They keep track of their progress with a graph. I am the Drill Sergeant, so I wear an army hat and get into character. They love this!
Next, soldiers have to complete missions (games and activities). You should see them! Some of the games require them to do push ups and jumping jacks! It is so funny, but they work really hard!
This mission requires a lot of strategy. Can you tell he is thinking hard?

I had to share this cute little saying!
We went on our field trip to the St. Louis Arch and Old Courthouse on Monday. We perform the Bubble Gum Trial at the courthouse every year as we study Government. I'll post pics soon.
Have a great day!
