Ice Cream Social! - Susan Jones Teaching

Ice Cream Social!

School is out for summer!!

My last day was Thursday and even though I sobbed for a good hour when my kids left, I am so excited to be on summer break!

I have NOTHING to do all summer which is an extremely relaxing thought.

I can laze by the pool...go to the all my books...

 are you jealous yet?!?

But really, I know my personality and I just cannot sit still for more than a hot minute.

So my teacher-brain has already been back to work and I just finished creating my fun back-to-school packet!

During the first week of school, when it is still HOT, and our brains are still in summer mode, I like to have a little ice cream social with my kids.

I bring in some ice cream and we enjoy it and complete some fun ice breakers. I made a bunch of literacy and math activities to go along with this little ice cream theme for the beginning of the year!

Here is a little preview of my packet:
 and it is currently for sale in my TpT store!

For everyone still in school - you can do it!!!
Now I am trying to get it in my little teacher brain that I can stay up late tonight!!

  3. Isn't it nice to have a Sunday night knowing you don't have to go anywhere tomorrow morning? I can hardly wait to sit and drink a cup a coffee without rushing through it! Your Back to School packet looks great...I'll have to check it out!

  5. Hi! I just found your blog. I am your newest follower. I would love to have you visit my blog.


  6. I would love to have that unit...and the "on sale" makes it even more tempting! Seriously, it looks so fun, yet practical. When I get back from vaca, that may be first on my ever-increasing to-do list (if I have any money left, HA!) Enjoy your break:)

  7. My kids would love me to bring in ice cream, but our district is food crazy. We aren't allowed to do any activities with food. (Like, no graphing m&m's or skittles, etc.) However, every single kid can bring in ridiculous cupcakes for their birthday. Why?! I don't know!
