Alphabet Countdown! (UPDATED!)

Happy Tuesday!  Who else is a little freaked out about the end of the school year???  I know…5 more Mondays and counting down to summer…but honestly, I am a little freaked out that it’s almost over and I feel like we have so much to do!!!  Anyways…

I always celebrate the end of the year with an alphabet countdown!  We start with z and work our way to a.  Each day we celebrate the letter of the day with a fun art project, snack, dress up day or other crazy activity!
