I sneezed...

it is weird that EVERYTIME I sneeze, I think of you?  You all ALWAYS tried to catch my on my "sneezing thing" (a double sneeze) and everytime I sneeze, I catch myself making sure it is "double" like I always assured you it would be.  I sneezed several times today and they always came in pairs, so I wanted you to know that it made me think of you...even here on the beach!!!  AND...I miss you so, so very much!!!  I hope all is well and I am absolutely L-O-V-I-N-G your letters...keep 'em coming (but also remember to include your return address as it is hard to send one back to you if you do not include your address!).

I. L.O.V.E. Y.O.U. (and miss you exponentially!!!)

I miss you already!!! Yes, already!  The fact that tomorrow is Monday and I will be at school working in our classroom, but I won't get to see you is weighing heavy on my heart!  Don't get me wrong, summer is awesome and these first two days have been wonderful, but I honestly miss you so much!  I hope your summer break has started off well...AND, I hope you plan on sending me a letter soon!

I love you!

6.2.11 - Summer Break Eve!!!

Happy Summer-Break Eve, everyone!  I cannot believe we're seems as if this year has absolutely FLOWN by!  I certainly do not want to see you students leave, you have been so very, very amazing and I love you so much!

Today, we had our Living Arts & Science Center presentation and it was so great!  We had so much fun and our presenter was filled with compliments for our behavior which made me so proud (I've been tearing up all day!).  We learned how energy is produced and how it is measured...see pictures below!

We finished up on some projects today as well...
We got our class yearbook complete, copied, and passed out to everyone!

Also, each student planted "Forget-Me-Nots" which are flowers that symbolize true, unforgettable love and fond memories, as well as faith, hope, and luck.  It would be an honor if all my fabulous students from this year would please accept the "Forget-Me-Not" seeds in upholding this cherished tradition.  We each have 2 sets of instructions for planting and growing these flowers.  I hope when they grow in your yard, you see them and remember your dear old 3rd grade teacher! 

Summer folders were sent home today as well.  These contain numerous activities to work on over the course of the extended break and even include an addressed and stamped envelope to me so you have no excuse not to send me a letter! 

Please do not forget that 3rd grade awards are tomorrow at 10:15 a.m. in the gym.  I look forward to seeing all parents there!

Happy June, Everyone!!!  I hope this HOT spring day finds you absolutely wonderful!  We have had a busy day of completing all of the end of the year tasks we need to get finished. 

The students wrote letters to my future students about what they can expect with having me next year (it's something I do every year for the first day of school), and then we packed up our room...completely!

Remember, our living arts & science presentation is tomorrow!  $2.50 is due before it begins at 8:40!  Also, do not forget that our 3rd grade awards presentation is Friday at 10:15.  We look forward to seeing you then!

Tomorrow, I will be sending home the summer packets and hopefully our class yearbook that we've been working on.
Mrs. Thomas
