Wrapping Things Up: Progress Reports & Summer Packets

My rooms have been dismantled, progress reports have been given out. It's hard to believe year #33 is in the books, but it definitely is. 
This year, since I used Google Forms/Sheets to keep track of my data, I was able to include a progress chart with my progress reports. I was also able to let the parents see how their children did with returning their homework.
To find out how easy it was to do this, check out this clip:

I am a firm believer in summer vacation. Not only for the teachers, but also for the students. That means that I only send out summer packets to a select few. It's been my experience that some students will actually progress when they have a break. I tell parents that we work on a sound so hard during the year, that when they get a break, something clicks. 
I handed out more summer packets this year than in previous ones.  The students that received the packets were my preschoolers, except for 1 student who has trouble with vocalic /r/. I was able to make some packets for different targets very quickly using Lessonpix. For my /k,g/ students, I made a packet last year, so all I had to do was print them out. I made directions for each of the activities last year, so I only had to print those out, as well.
My summer vacation will officially begin on Wed.; we have a Tech Conference on Tues. that will allow us to take an extra day of Fall Break. Definitely worth it! I have books to read and a kitchen to remodel, as well as ASHA CONNECT to attend in July. I plan on relaxing and taking a break from Speech things; July 25th will be here before you know it.
What fun things do you have planned this summer?
