down the red carpet!
For the awards ceremony, I like to get a length of red butcher paper and "roll out the red carpet" for the students to walk down as they come to collect their awards. They usually end up dancing down the runway and high-fiving each other on their way back to their seats on either side of the paper.

But some of the awards are silly and poke a little fun at the kids. My favorites are the "Cold Seat Award" for the student who is never sitting in his/her chair, the "Tiny Bladder Award" for the kiddo who makes more trips to the bathroom than should be humanly possible, and the "Chicken Scratch Award" for the kid whose handwriting is pretty much unreadable. Of course I try to make sure that everyone gets at least one serious award and one silly one.

These guys have been hanging out in the trees in our neighborhood for the last week or so. This city boy isn't used to seeing actual live bears living a block away from his house. You definitely don't see this living in Atlanta. Crazy! Just one of the charms of living in a sleepy college town in central Pennsylvania, I suppose!

Still one and a half days to go! Monday is Field Day and Tuesday is a half day school-wide assembly...so the teaching is pretty much over for the year! Summer, here I come!
