So, has your summer began? Or, are you on the countdown? I am on the countdown, but am already thinking ahead to it. I love summer. I love the laziness, but I also like to keep a little structure in my life. The last few years I have made a summer to do list for my son and I. I call it our bucket list. This list includes simple things like
go on a bike ride
but, also includes things like
a road trip
professional baseball games
I love this list. We don't always get to everything, but if it is a day where I need to find something to do, we look on the summer list. I have mine copied as a 16 X 20 inch poster size print at Costco and then we hang it up. My son loves to check things off.

Well, after I made this I thought about how I could incorporate this into my classroom. So I came up with a bucket list for my first graders. I thought we could brainstorm bucket list ideas and they can write them down and show them to their parents. I will be sure to talk about what is a realistic bucket list vs. a dream bucket list. I will also explain that we don't always get to everything on our list and that is okay. So here is another freebie for you. This is a bucket list you can use with your class.

Do you have a summer bucket list? If so, what are some things that you have listed? I would love to hear how others fill their summer.
