As the year is coming to an end we have been extremely busy! CAT Testing was last week, Progress Monitoring, Benchmarking coming up, pushing to get through Read Well and Saxon and not to mention all the fun that comes with it being June...
We rented out a boat in Telegraph Cove for a PreK-1/Community Event. We are going to continue strengthening our relationship with parents and community members while learning about our culture, and finish off our Living Things - Mammals Unit all at sea. I am not sure who is more excited, the kids or me! We have a Sports Day, Beach Day, Graduation, and about a million other things to do in our 13 teaching days left... oh and report cards!
On a final note, I am writing a Do and Don't list for next year as reminders, I'll make sure to share. Until then, remember to breathe in between it all. Remember to stop and appreciate the small moments, the "I love you Miss C's", the "...he was being mean to you, so I got some help...", the unconditional smiles and laughter, the songs (Cups), the supportive staff, and the success no matter what size. Sometimes we get too caught up in the curriculum and the testing we forget that those small reasons make the biggest difference, and to most of us - the reason we got into teaching to begin with.
All my love,
