Giveaway Over at Swimming into Second

We had state testing last week and it was long and draining!  This was the first time in many, many years that 2nd grade had to take a state test.  I am so glad it is over. 

My weekend consisted of driving to Virginia to help my eldest son pack up his dorm room and bring most of it back with me.  His last final is Tuesday evening and then he will be home for the summer.  You can only imagine how a dorm room looked....I was there most of the day yesterday.  I'm excited to have him home!

Have you entered the giveaway over at  Swimming into Second?  She is giving away a $20 gift certificate from
 
Hope everyone has a great Monday.  I have to miss Tuesday to go to training....I'm glad I really don't have to do sub plans...this is my student teacher's last week and so the sub that they get me will not have to do any teaching.  I think I will leave her some things to keep her busy though.  I still need to decide what to get my student teacher as a farewell gift.  Any suggestions?

With my student teachers, I buy a scrapbook and creat their first four pages for them. I have all the students with names on the first page. The second page is the group picture and the third and fourth page is a collage of random pictures that I took throughout her student teaching. They love this keepsake and they can continue this book for as long as they teach. I have a scrapbook of every year that I have taught and I am going on 15 years now. I love looking back through it and my students each year love to look at it too.

I just started following your blog. I like the idea of the scrapbook that the other poster wrote. I think a new teacher survival kit is also a great idea. I saw one here: http://www.twopeasinabucket.com/gallery/member/122960-livvysmom/1638896-teacher-survival-kit/?c=t
