Our daughter graduated from college in May. So proud of her. She immediately started an accelerated nursing program at a local university. In 15 months she will have a second degree in nursing, and hopefully 2 months after that her license.
This was my first year in Kindergarten in this school. (I taught 2nd for 5 yrs before.) There was so much year end work to do... and we do narrative reports cards... And I work summer camp which started directly after school got out. Enough said,
Having previously taught Kindergarten, I had some favorite things I could share. Many of you do the monthly or weekly poems. It is such a meaningful way to address reading and make it fun, as well.
Here is the poem I always place in the end of the book. I trace my hand first, then call a student over. I read the poem to him/her and then we hold hands for a minute... Lastly, I trace their hand over mine.
Love it! Hope you do, too. Click on the title below for a freebie.
This hand I hold I touch it now
For all eternity.
And the knowledge that I share
I give from me to you.
In hope that all you do and say
Reflects your lessons learned.
And all the awards that you receive
Are ones that you have earned.
I am your present teacher
And your true friend,
But, though the year is over
My thoughts of you will never end!
Hope you have a wonderful summer.
