ABC Countdown

The end of a school year is an exciting time for everyone.  Our youngest learners are moving on to their next year, now ready to take on more challenges with all the skills and strategies they have acquired this year and a new group of learners is getting ready to come in.  
To celebrate all the hard work of a year, the Kindergarten team at our school does an ABC countdown to the end of the school year.  Each year we talk as a team and tweak it a little based on what worked well the year before or any new ideas we have for this year.  This is such a fun thing to do as a team because everyone brings such great ideas to the table.   Thank you Maria Elena, Niki, and Andrea for all your great ideas, support, and friendship.  I’m so lucky to work with such amazing educators!
The ABC Countdown is a great idea for any grade, not just Kindergarten.  It really helps to keep things fresh and exciting for the home stretch of a school year.  Make it your own by touching on things your class loves.
Below you will see our calendar for the last 26 days of school.  One of my teammates had the brilliant idea to color code the calendar to let families know when their Kindergartner needed to bring something or when volunteers or donations would be appreciated.
Perhaps you’ll want to do an ABC warm up next year to start the year or end your year with an ABC countdown.  
Hope you enjoy!
