That's a sure sign of a GREAT day!
I thought I'd share the project that my son's class helped me create for his teacher. This was her last year. She taught for 31 years and I am so thankful that both my kids got to have her. She was very big on making sure that kids had time to PLAY when they got home from school. Not do hours of homework at the age of 8. She had them churn butter and brought in many things and shared many experiences about life in the "olden" days. She was always there to encourage them in the most positive way. Both of my kids made dioramas from the book Charlotte's Web. My son said, "Mom, Mrs M read that book every year for 31 years (to the class) and she cried every time Charlotte dies. That's 31 times she's cried."
D and his rendition of the scene from the fair.
Here is the scrapbook the kid's helped me make for her.....
This is the inside cover. I had to scribble out Mrs M.'s face. She may not want to be on the internet:)
This was the last page of the book. I asked the kids to give me 10 adjectives that described Mrs. M.
I had to look up and make sure that "narly" was spelled correctly. It is such slang. Gnarly is what kept coming up and that means "hairy." Hee hee. I knew that wasn't what they meant. I also knew that Mrs M wouldn't know what narly meant so I translated. Kids are too funny. I hope she enjoyed this. I thought it was fun to read all the things the kids wrote.
So we made it to the end of another year. This week we have no plans other than baseball games and tutoring. I'm looking forward to a relaxing and fun summer with my kids.
Have a great day!
