ABC Countdown to the End of the year Q: Q-Tip painting


End of the Year Poem


Dear Parents,

I give you back your child, the same child you confidently entrusted to my care last fall. I give them back pounds heavier, inches taller, months wiser, more responsible, and more mature then they were then.

Although they would have attained their growth in spite of me, it has been my pleasure and privilege to watch their personality unfold day by day and marvel at this splendid miracle of development.

Remember that I shall always be interested in your child and their destiny, wherever they go, whatever they do, whoever they become. Their joys and sorrows I’ll be happy to share.

Mrs. Dahl

Little Bird Tales

Students are using Littlebirdtales.com to write their stories during writers workshop. They used the storyboard from the Lucy Culkins Writer's Workshop series, then they were able to check out a laptop, log-in to their Little Tales account and go to work. Once we are done, I will share a few.
