Wow!!! It seems like just yesterday it was February and we were getting ready for the Valentine’s Party at school!! I can’t believe that it is already June and 4 months have past since Evelyn was born. Although it has been a very busy, busy 4 months, I was able to visit school a few times and send an e-mail update almost every week, but I did miss Room 106 dearly. It was such a treat to see everyone 3 days in a row last week!!!
By now you have probably settled into summer with your sweet second grader… so before summer gets going too fast, I wanted to take the time to thank you for an INCREDIBLE school year!!! It was an absolute honor to be your child’s teacher this year!!! We had such a great group of kids in Room 106 with so much laughter and fun. There are so many wonderful memories from this year that I will treasure forever: the walk-a-thon, holiday parties, writing celebrations, pajama day, stuffed animal day, toy day, the ice-cream party, fort day, our field trip to Family Fare, Layla & Tucker’s visit, but especially sharing in the joy of Evelyn with all you. I appreciated your encouragement and support throughout the school year so much. I am also extremely thankful for your flexibility and the kindness that you showed Miss Field. She did an absolutely AMAZING job!!!
I wish you all a wonderful summer and fabulous year in second grade!!! I know you will love it. Next year will be a big change for me too as I have the wonderful opportunity to stay home with my girls for a year. It was a bittersweet decision to make, because I have the best job in the whole world, but I couldn’t pass up this once in a lifetime opportunity. :)
Below are some pictures of Evelyn from the last 4 months. She’s getting so big!!
On Wednesday, we earned our last 10 star prize! For this prize, we decided as a class that it would be fun to have Mrs. Stadt and Mrs. Cline (Mrs. Stadt’s Mom) come to visit and bring Tucker and Layla. Layla is Mrs. Stadt’s Yorkie and Tucker is Mrs. Stadt’s parents’ Poodle. Tucker showed us some fun tricks that he can do and ran around in the soccer field with the kids for a very long time! Layla enjoyed being picked up, giving kisses, and being petted and loved :)
The Chalk and Bubble Party was such a success!! Thank you to everyone for all of the donations! We had a blast today (and what beautiful weather for the party too)!! We had four stations today.. bubbles, chalk, popsicles, and the playground. We were also able to visit with Mrs. Stadt, Amelia, and Evelyn.
I was able to catch so many fun, smiling moments of our kiddos this week! Enjoy the pictures!!
On Thursday, June 7 we will spend a portion of our day enjoying the outdoors. To prepare for our outdoor activities make sure your child comes to school wearing suntan lotion and comfortable clothes/shoes. Your child can also bring a beach towel and sunglasses to use during our outdoor fun!
We will be eating popsicles, making bubbles, drawing with chalk, and more, but we will also use the beach towel again earlier in the day as we head outside for our last readers workshop!
This summer, our school library will be open for students to check out books. On Tuesdays, 10:00-12:00, students can stop by school to check out books and visit with their favorite teachers. Research has shown that students who choose to read throughout the summer are more successful readers. Help to establish healthy reading habits and mark this on your calendars. Looking forward to seeing all of you there!
Every year, we look forward to celebrating the end of the year together outside with bubbles, sidewalk chalk,popsicles, and fun!
I have received some chalk and bubbles donations so far (Thank you, Thank you!!). A little birdy has also mentioned that the larger bottles of bubbles work best for pouring into the giant pool we will have on that Thursday :)
If you have not donated anything yet, please consider the larger bottles of bubbles!! Feel free to send in your goodies anytime before that day.
