Life Can Be Full of Surprises

So I hugged my entire class good-bye yesterday, worked on cleaning up the room (and there was serious work to be done) and went to a friend's house to celebrate another year of teaching. While I was there I got an email that I was nominated for this award from Really Good Stuff and it came as a wonderful surprise!  Endings are hard for me and this could not have come at a better time. The voting starts on July 1st and if you want to participate you can click on my sidebar.
Summer is officially here for me.
Thanks for all the wonderful comments and links you all provided for our book study. I read each one and really enjoyed your thoughtful responses and creative activities.

I love your blog and have sent many teachers that I have trained in thinking maps to your blog. You have such great activities!!

I LOVE the way that you post your examples (like the post today with the blue color behind your picture). How do you create those?
