Eek, It’s That Time Again!

#sol17- June 6, 2017

Ugh, today made it all too real! First thing this morning we sorted through piles of papers and moved them into cubbies for easy access for later sharing (or to take home). Later in the day some of my superstar students stayed in at recess and cleaned and organized- the classroom looked ready. In the afternoon during math, the students designed the games for tomorrow’s Potato Olympics (great way to combine literacy, math, and some engineering, with a lot of fun!). Then we settled in to read a few more chapters of The One and Only Ivan (eek, will we get it all finished?). Parents were peeking in the windows, enjoying seeing their children totally enthralled. Then it was time. We had a farewell party in our third-grade classrooms today- nothing major just a half hour at the end of the day to share snacks, thank our room parents, say goodbye to students moving on, and share a fun time. Not all of the parents were able to attend, and that was fine. What was lovely was that there were several dads there, a grandmother, and a little sister, and everyone had fun together. What I did not like was that I did not get to talk to everyone. Our team had decided that 30 minutes was long enough, but it flew by. After today we have only 2 1/2 days left and although in some ways I am more than ready, in other ways I am getting that melancholy ending feeling- this class has come so far!

Tomorrow we will have the last assembly of the year and the third graders will visit fourth grade. There is still so much we are trying to squeeze in as we celebrate our last week together and I am trying to feel ready, but I am not very good at goodbyes. 2 1/2 days to get it all done and of course it will be time for the last bell whether we get it all done or not. Our mantra this week in 3EV is end strong, be proud! I better live it too.
