Spring Break

Today, the first day of Spring Break.  A very happy day for many teachers.  Although I am excited about a week of no work, no students, and no early mornings, I am also a bit sad as well.  Today I said good bye to my students knowing full well when they return to me in a week, they will be different. They will be..

-taller

-leaner

-refreshed

-nicer to one another (fondness makes the heart grow stronger)

-tanner

-smarter (brain wise, hopefully not mouth wise)

-older

-more curious

-excited about the last stretch

-sad about the last stretch

-anxious

Third graders walked out of my classroom today, but in one week almost fourth graders will be walking in.  Soon to be fourth graders who have spent the last 5 or 6 years together…growing together…learning together…facing and overcoming challenges together.  Soon to be fourth graders who will get to spend two more months together before they are no longer together.
