Dear Third Graders,
I cannot believe our school year is coming to an end. You will be on your way to fourth grade soon!
We've had a great school year. We've laughed together and cried together. (It's ok to admit you cried when we read the end of Stone Fox. You know I did! :)) We've made a lot of memories this year.
Some of the great memories I have with you all from this school year are:
our field trip to Natural Bridge Caverns
building land forms
making infomercials for severe weather
spending times with our kindergarten buddies
our winter party
cursive on a Monday!
Pioneer day, publishing parties
our poetry cafe
the football math and baseball math projects (which one did you like better?)
the Tournament of Books
James and the Giant Peach
the "peach party" in honor of Roald Dahl
tracking the Iditarod mushers
the planetarium visit
We liked ice cream and guacamole...
..but we didn't like bananas.
Out of My Mind
Hubble 3D at the IMAX
McPufferson, Rad Chad, Weevil Labeevil and all our GoNoodle friends
...and we're not even finished with the school year! Imagine all the great things we can add to this list over the next few days!
I think my favorite memory from this school year was one of the first times you earned a compliment party. You chose your reward to be for me to bring Hailey to school so you could sing "Happy Birthday" to her right before first birthday. It was such a sweet moment and you know she loved being the center of attention. ;-)
I am truly going to miss you next year. I wish you could stay in third grade a little longer! You will love being a fourth grader and your fourth grade teacher will love you!!!
Promise you'll come back and visit me and my new group of third graders next year!
