They started it out how they start out their class, with the pledge.
I love hearing little ones say "indivisible".
Then they sang songs like this one, "Shake a Friend's Hand".
They recited poems.
Each kid was asked what they liked best about the year.
My boy said reading books! The teacher in me leaped for joy!!!! Now if I could only get him to be excited to try to read at home. We've got to practice, kid, don't you know?!?!
Knowing him, he'll really start to read when he's ready. And it includes something about science.
The last song they did was a tear jerker. It was something about never forgetting you, loving you forever. These kids are all off to kindergarten next year going their different ways. I don't think I'll ever get over the sadness of the end of the school year.
Here are his AMAZING teachers. On the left is Miss Kendra, the assistant teacher. The lady on the right is Miss Debi. She is so enthusiastic about kids' learning it makes me feel humbled to be in her presence. She's very good at what she does, needless to say.
I'm a mom of 4, a former teacher and dancer, a lover of books, passionate about my faith in Christ, addicted to e-mail and fitness, a middle child, a conservative, a peanut butter fanatic, and married to a rocket scientist.
