Hey There.

 The strategies that teachers use in the classroom are valuable outside the classroom. You know this. It's time everyone had access to the things teachers know. Now you do. Welcome!

  • Sunscreen
  • Laundry
  • End of year celebrations
  • Summer dreams
  • Popsicles
  • Sticky tables, counters,.....everything
  • Flipping through yearbooks

  • Just barely

In these pieces I like to reflect on what life is like for me and my family during this day and time. They are fun to read later and very easy to to create. 

Assignment: Write your own 'These are the days of..' or share a few here in the comments. I would love to hear what life is like right now for you. 

Thanks for reading!
