chalkboard wall. june. countdown to summer.

Oh my. June has arrived. That means that the school year is nearly over and summer fun is about to begin. I love summer. No agenda. No places we have to be. Just plain ole’ fun.

Our JUNE chalkboard wall. A place where we countdown the days until summer and recap what made our year so special.

The theme for this month? School ending. Summer starting. What a year.


one. hello, june.
A little poem about the school ending and summer beginning. But, more importantly, what was each of the boysies favorite parts? They were so cute with their answers. Little loves with sweet little memories.


two. oh, how i love the sun. and a countdown to summer.
The countdown is on. My boys are both super visual and I have one little cutie that asks every day, “how many days left now”. Well, I figure this will help solve that question without much work from me. Oh, and it’s cute. What could be better?

    Looks great! I’m giggling that you quickly checked of “list” before a trip 🙂

    Darling idea as always. Do you always just use regular chalk?

      Thanks for the sweet words! Yes, I always use regular, old chalk. It might be from my teaching days, but it is easier for me than a marker that doesn’t have much room for error. Using a pencil sharpener to sharpen the chalk also helps. Sometimes I use the tip, other times I turn it on its side and use a flat edge, like for the words FUN and FAVORITE. Just a few tricks up my sleeve… Hope that helps!
