Today, the special surprise was to read outside. The kids LOVED it. Here's a collage of a few of my kids, totally into their reading.
You can put anything you want on the back of the suns. Here are some suggestions:
1. Sit anywhere you want all day.
2. Chew gum in class.
3. Water paint
4. No homework
5. Crab races for P.E.
6. Movie day
7. Make/sign Memory Book
You get the idea... Also, you can strategically place the suns in the order you want them to fall (that's the way I do it.) Or, you can let the kids come up and select a sun randomly. Whatever you choose, the kids will love the anticipation of the Summer Countdown.
