I can't believe how this year has flown by! We may not be done until mid-June, but it feels so close.
In light of the warmer weather and SUNSHINE (oh how I miss sunshine during Oregon winters) I whipped up an easy treat and dusted off my favorite end-of-the-year read aloud.
Fruity Coconut Pops
All you need is fruit, coconut water, and a Popsicle mold.
Cut up your fruit choice(s) and place it in the mold. Be sure to fill each slot about 3/4 full.
Once the mold is filled with your fruit pour coconut water over the fruit, filling each compartment.
Don't forget to place a Popsicle stick in each slot before placing them in the freezer.
The Read Aloud:
For the last nine years, I have read Miss Rumphius, by Barbara Cooney to my students. I have used this book with kinders all the way through fifth graders. I love that it can reach such a variety of students! I always wait to read it during a plant unit or at the end of the year. The author's message is one that I want my students to carry with them forever...which is why I send them home with flower seeds.
What is your go-to end of the year read aloud? What is your favorite quick warm weather treat?
