Is it really only Tuesday!?!? May Day Ideas!

It has been a long week, but I can't believe tomorrow is May! Today, I had my formal observation by my principal. Most of my kiddos were so amazing, and I was so proud of them, but then there was the one. This one decided to be awful, and was so awful in fact that she was taken home at the end of my observation, and suspended for two days. I felt terrible, but it has been a struggle with this friend all year. Most of all though, it made me sad though because my struggles with this one friend shed a bad light on the rest of my class, but I know my kiddos did their best in that situation. Alright enough with that!

So when I was little, my mom always had us make May Day baskets, and I LOVED it! It was so fun to deliver them. So I got an idea, our 3rd graders just finished their state testing today, and they rocked it! I was so proud of those kids, so I thought it would be fun for my class to make them May Day baskets to show how proud we are of them. Tomorrow morning, we are going to make these baskets and write them letters on how we look up to them and how we can't wait to be like them next year because my kids are always talking like that. We will also put  little flower suckers in the basket as well. Here is documents for our baskets, little note sheets, and flower sucker pattern! :) Enjoy:
