Farewell to Miss Lawson

Friday was our fabulous student teacher's last day with us! :(
She has been an amazing asset to our room and we have loved every minute of having her here. She has done great things and taught us all so much.  On Friday we gave her some gifts which included a scrapbook we made for her with our pictures and letters and she wrote each of us a letter too!! We also gave her books to start her own classroom library and a sign with her name on it for her classroom door one day!
She loves these kids and we were all sad to see her go. Here are some pictures from the day. Miss Lawson, if you are reading this- COME VISIT! :)

Thanks to TB's mom for the YUMMY cake!!

We know she is an excellent teacher and will have her own classroom very soon!!

Guest Readers

Recently we have had a few guest readers in room 201. Reading to the class is one of my most favorite things to do, so I don't just give that up to just anyone. :) You have to be pretty special for me to give up my favorite time of the day. I have found a few people lately that fit the bill and they took time to read to us and I was able to capture a few pictures of it.  One day this month a student in our class was chosen off our BINGO BEHAVIOR BOARD and for her behavior reward she wanted to read to the class! I thought this was a good idea and the class loved it. Also, this month one of our students celebrated turning 9 and his mom and dad came in with hot cocoa, s'mores and they shared a story. It was an extra fun birthday celebration. Lastly, Mr. Featherston (a fourth grade teacher at our school) came in and shared a book he had written with us. That too was a fun experience for us! There are very few things that make me happier than when kids get into a book and are excited  about reading!! These guest readers did an excellent job. If you would like to come read to our class or know someone who would be great, please let me know. We would love to share our rocking chair with you!!
