School Year 2014-2015

Thank you third graders for an amazing year.

We did a few activities the last few days reflecting over the past year that I thought were important to share. One thing we did was think over the entire year, remembering all the different activities we did. We were very busy! Here is the Padlet we made about some of our favorites.

I also asked the students to give me five words to describe their year. They could choose any words they wanted.  I took the words they chose and put them in a Word Cloud. I wasn't surprised to see techie so prominent!

Finally, here's a short video I put together with some of the (many) pictures I took over the year. I am so fortunate to be able to spend my days with such caring, enthusiastic, positive students. Thank you for an incredible year.

Have an amazing summer. I would love to hear about it. The things you did, the places you visited, and the books you read!

Last but not least, a big welcome to the class of 2015-2016! Hello to Omar, Andrew, Meredith, Jackson, Shiloh, Riley, Lauren, Julian, Addison, Ethan, Dorothy, Selena, Korin, Avery, Camden, Joey, Laina, Kaitlyn, Jordan, Cordelia, Mason T., Sydney, and Mason W. It's going to be a great year!
