We can't believe we're already talking about the end of the school year! Where has the time gone? It feels like just yesterday we were talking about Back To School night! As bittersweet as the end of the year may be, we would be lying if we didn't mention how fun it is to start thinking about Summer. That's why we're so excited to share these 5 lesson plans that are perfect for keeping the learning going!
1- Whale-come Bulletin Board
Whether you're teaching summer school or gathering some inspiration for next year's classroom decor, this sea-inspired bulletin board is such a sweet way to welcome students to class. Grab this free lesson plan here and all the details on this whale-coming project.
2- Summer Goals
One of the best ways to enjoy a Summer break is to take a much needed (and deserved) vacation. If you're getting ready to say goodbye to your students but want to keep them focused for the upcoming year, this Summer Goals Lesson Plan is the ticket. With just a few supplies, your kiddos can have a fun customized notebook to keep all their goals in.
3- Sea Life
Our licensed designer, Laura Kelly, really made a splash with her latest collection. Laura's Sea Life dies are so cute and so much fun! We've created an Octopus garland, magnetic bookmarks, and even sweet cards with these dies and there's no sign of stopping! These little guys are set for Summer learning, playing and decorating. Grab more details on all 6 here.

Yum, these sundaes look good enough to eat! If you can't have an ice cream social this Summer with your kiddos, we've got the next best thing. This Opposite Day Sundaes Lesson Plan is a really fun way to keep your students engaged. You can make a set of these to keep in the classroom or help your students make their own, either way, it's a game that's bound to make them smile!
5- Pleasin' Seasons Signs
Do you have seasonal signs for your classroom? It's such a great way to help your students learn the seasons as they come and go. We also love this idea because it's such an easy project to make that can be used over and over again. Grab all the details here to learn how you can create your own.
