School ended on Friday, and.....ESY starts on Monday. No break for those who love their jobs!
ESY (otherwise known as Extended School Year) is like a summer camp for children with severe communication needs who need to maintain their skills. Once I get over the shock of having to work during the summer, I love the kids, the different schools, and everything I do.
A few years ago, I created a "Fireworks Everywhere" book for summer school which was popular. This was done on Boardmaker, and I freely shared it as a pdf file. I still share it as a Boardmaker file free, but have converted the pdf file to Smarty Symbols (which I pay for). Ultimately, all of my Boardmaker pdf files will be converted to Smarty Symbols for copyright reasons and also because the clip art is totally awesome. It's just not free for me, so I list my materials for a modest price.
Check out the new and improved "Fireworks Everywhere" book and craft HERE.
On a personal note, if you have kept up with my daughter's adventures as a Peace Corps volunteer, she made it home after 27 months of being a goodwill ambassador and English teacher in Indonesia. I'm feeling the love.
