The end of the school year is in sight!! When I was a kid, I had no idea that my teachers were probably more excited about summer break than I was. :) Even though I am pretty psyched about wrapping up the school year, I am really going to miss my kiddos. This class was one of my all-time favorites, and since I'm moving out of the classroom to be a reading specialist next year, these little guys are particularly special to me.
So that I can keep in touch with my students over summer break, I'm going to invite them to write letters to me! I've never done this before, so we'll see how it goes, but I am really looking forward to it. What I'm going to do is send a letter home asking parents to return a slip with their address if the child wants a letter from me. About 3 weeks after school is out, I'll send letters to those kids who are interested, and include my home address so that they can write me back if they like.
If you'd like to give this a try too, click on one of the images below. You'll be able to download (for free) a parent letter to send home, as well as some fun tropical writing paper to use to write your letters.
If you teach K, 1st, or 2nd and are also interested in sending home summer learning packets for your kiddos, click on one of the photos below.
Wishing you a wonderful and calm end to the school year!!
