Last Day of School

Sigh.  Today was my last day with my students.  I had to take the last two days of school off for my childrens' graduations from elementary and middle school.   Lots of changes in my house!

It's always hard to say good-bye and third graders can be pretty emotional about it! I have promised to keep our Edmodo group open and active this summer so that we can connect online.  I've also given them a Summer Reading AND a Summer Writing Challenge.  In August, they can come back to show me what they've read and written and I will give them something special.  I'm looking forward to seeing what they've accomplished this summer!

I always take a lot of pictures throughout the year of all of the fun things we do.  I put all the pictures together in chronological order using Windows Live Movie Maker and then add some of our favorite songs.  It's always a big hit and a wonderful memento from our year together.  This year, I designed a special DVD cover.  Isn't it cute?
