like a top


The countdown is on, and I'm spinning like a top.
  • Today was my final Monday morning character assembly with this class.
  • Tomorrow I take the Poetry Masters out for ice cream. I had seven students this year who memorized all 34 poems of the week.
  • Wednesday is Character Day with water, cooperation games, lots of fun, and Andy's frozen custard.
  • Thursday is my annual Lawsonland Reading Pajama Party.
  • Friday is the last day of school.
My, oh my!

I've been missing you lately. Very much. I'll be back tomorrow night with my Wednesday list, but I had to say, "Hello" now. I won't be around your places much until things calm down a bit. Say, Saturday morning. Is it a date?

What's been spinning you around lately?

Hi Relyn,

Frozen custard?! See you Saturday.

beth said...

Relyn said...

Derrick,

Frozen custard tastes remarkably like ice cream, but it is much lower in fat. Pretty good.

I look at your photos and can feel the joy. Spring has come here finally so I am spinning with blossoms and greenery and new beginnings.

I went through boxes of treasures yesterday...notes from teachers reminded me of those who touched my life and made me who I am today. Your students will no doubt think of you!!!

Meri said...

You are a precious gift for your students. Blessings -- and have a relaxing summer.

What a beautiful "top" you have spinning for you!
Geez, it really did go by fast, didn't it? I miss my kids already. I am not good at goodbyes, so I rush through them to feel less pain and then I realize I never really said a real goodbye. At least not a fulfilling complete one ~ who knows maybe that's how its mean't to be for me.
Anyway I love your take on life!

Poetry Masters, ice cream and pajama parties?
I SO wish I had you as a teacher.
I wish I wish.

Oldies, but Goodies
