What a Week!

First off Happy Mother's Day everyone.  I hope you were all able to spend some time with or thinking about your moms and hope your kids remembered to honor you today.
    On Tuesday was were treated to a wonderful presentation on farming by our new superintendent Winn Goodrich.  It was exciting to hear him speak of all the things we have been learning about in our unit on farming.  It was great to hear about the different kinds of cows and where they originated in the world long ago.  Mr. Goodrich shared a video of his parents on the farm from a local tv station. It was fascinating and fun.  We enjoyed some yummy Cabot cheese snacks, stickers and booklets about cheese.  Mr. Goodrich had a hand in making the cheese snacks earlier on in his career.  It was a great way to illustrate farm to table for our students.  We welcome Mr. Goodrich to our district and look forward to sharing more first grade events with him.

     On Thursday of this week I had my annual Mother's Day Tea.  It was well attended.  I love seeing all the smiling moms.   We sang, served, spoke great thoughts, and created for our moms.  It was an afternoon of genuine love between mother and child.  I would like to thank our fabulous assistant principal, Ms. Casavant who spent time with our class helping to learn the song  Sing (Karen Carpenter).  You know the song....."Sing.  Sing as song.  Sing out loud.  Sing out strong.  Sing of good things not bad.  Sing of happy not sad." .......  It was adorable!
     Part of our event was a slide show of our year together.  Then a video with kids declaring their love for their moms and the special things they do for them.  I get choked up just listening to my kiddos speak about their moms.  It was a special afternoon.  Thanks to all the moms for making an effort to come.
Check out our Slide Show of our year HERE.

Sweet declarations of love!
