State Testing is over (except for the Science exam in May)... the end of the school is near... time for some fun! I like to end the school year with a few inspirational lessons and a fun craft. Yes, I said craft! Read aloud one of these great books about dreamcatchers and follow it up with your students making their own dreamcatcher (step-by-step directions click here). It's amazing what you can make with a paper plate, yarn and a few feathers. You can even tie it into Native American curriculum. What a great way to spend an hour or two of class time. Have Fun!
