The (final) Harris Herald
May 31, 2013
Dear Room 2 families,
I cannot thank you enough for one of the most enjoyable
and memorable school years I have had in my years as a teacher. You are raising wonderful children who I know
will grow up to genuinely kind and respectful adults. I will remember each of the kids in my class
this year for different and very specific reasons. The last day of school is always a tough one. But this year will be especially difficult
for me. What I wouldn’t give to have this class again!
Again, thank you so very much.
Your child’s first grade teacher,
what we’re doing in
We all finally finished publishing our small moment
writing! Look for this to come home with
the checklist your child was responsible for, as well as the rubric I used to
grade their work!
This week during “Word Work” we did a word search that had all of our
friends’ names in it! It was fun!
theater performance of The Great Kapok Tree was fabulous!!
We finished up our assessment and they
came home graded for you to see.
Science: We finished up our
Google presentations of our rainforest animal research. We also presented them to one another today
(Friday). The students did a great
job! Feel free to log into your child’s
Google account (username: firstname.lastname@example.org
password: student ID# preceeded by two zeros) to see their final presentation
along with comments that I have made to each of them regarding their work. I THINK YOU WILL BE VERY IMPRESSED!
Gifts from Mrs. Harris
Next week, I’ll be sending home a DVD photo
slideshow for each of the kids to KEEP. DISCLAIMER: It is not intended to bring
mothers to tears. However, I’ve been
told it has happened in the past. ENJOY!
I will also be giving each student a
stamped envelope with my address on it.
This envelope is for the students to write to me over the summer about
books that they are reading and activities they are doing. If your child writes to me, I will write them
a letter back!
Also, your child will be bringing home
their first grade memory books that we have been working on all year. I hope you enjoy these!
