Things are winding down at my school in preparation for our annual test-taking ritual. This year---a little less frenzy, since scores won't be available for everyone until October. This late date will eliminate retests (if a kid didn't pass in the past years, he or she had the joy of taking it again). This year, there's a reprieve from that for both the kids and for the adults who have to administer the tests. I'm happy!
For those of you who need materials centered around the beach or ocean theme, I've been collecting them over the years. During summer ESY (extended school year), we typically celebrate the beach and ocean, so I have several adapted books and crafts in my tool chest. Here they are! All free as usual.
