Celebrating the Last Days With the ABC's!

Soooo, I started this post LAST April.  No that is not a type-o.  Yep, almost one year ago I started this post with the best of intentions to finish.  Well, here it is {almost} April 2013...and I'm determined to finish... TODAY!
Wordle: abc's
(don't you LOVE Wordle???)
I'm thinking about how we're going to "Celebrate the Last Days of Kindergarten with the ABC's" this year.  Can you believe that we're in our "last days of school"?!?!  This year is flying by!  Yet there is still soooo much to cover!  It won't be long and I'll be sending my lil' love muffins off into the BIG world of 1st grade! 

In a few short weeks we will begin celebrating the last days of school ABC Style!  I found this idea a couple of years (see post) on Mrs. Kimbrell's Kindergarten blog.  My lil' love muffins and I always have a great time, so it's in the works for this year, too! Each year, I tweak it a bit as other ideas arise (mine, teacher buddies, fellow blogateers, or of course, pinterest).  Here is a list of the daily events from last year w/a short explanation.  I also try to tie in a book, writing or math activity, science experiment, etc... with each letter. 

A-Animal Day (bring a SMALL stuffed animal to school)

 B-Bubble Day

C-CrAzY Day (CrAzY hair, clothes, socks, etc...)
