Sigh.... Last Day. Go Get Your Summer Groove On Friends!
Today.. our last day... we potted herb plants for you to enjoy with all your summer eating! Thanks Sylvia for coordinating this fun last day project!! The big surprise today was our little bunny visitor! Our baby bunny friend hung out with us for most of the morning's planting activities! If we weren't planting, you can clearly see we were practicing making pyramids with our bodies! Team work and friendship was LARGE and IN CHARGE of any down time we had today, as we savored every moment together on our last day! Hard to describe what it's like to shepherd 19 trusting, wide-eyed, thoughtful, caring sweet academic young students through 180 days together, and then... to have to let them go!! Mixed emotions. Mostly joy and pride at all we've accomplished, all our learning and progress... amazing! I'm so grateful to have been your teacher. While I taught you, you also taught me, so much! Your energy and enthusiasm for learning is rare and special! The way you all look out for each other is awesome! I'd follow each and every one of you to 6th grade if I could! Have fun this summer, and remember to make reading and play a part of every day! You are all stars!!! Danny's comment during thoughtful reflection at the end of today, might have summed it all up... "Everyone in this room, right now, is pretty much my best friend". See... now you know what I'm talking about when I tell you about how special this class is! STUNNING YEAR, SECOND GRADE FRIENDS!
