I am always excited for summer, especially this year because of my little man. I will though, miss my 27 first graders. I found this book, and thought it was just perfect to share, "Last Day Blues" by: Julie Danneberg.
This books is about a teacher and her class. The class feels bad for their teacher because it is going to be the last day of school in just a few short days. They see that she's sad and they want to do something kind for her. So, they decide to come together to get something for her. When the last day of school comes, they give her the gift ad when they leave they're thinking of how sad all of the teachers must be... but in reality, they're just as excited as the kids.
It's a great book to discuss how we can think of others and their feelings!
I also will use this book as a little writing activity and story response to practice identifying evidence and clues from a story.
