Can you believe…..
There are only 10 days of school left?! I am so proud of all of my kiddos and so sad that the end is near! I have grown to love each of them so very much! Some of the girls and I have already cried a few times this past week! We all have a close little bond and are finding it hard that we have to say goodbye soon! But… these kiddos are sooo ready for 1st grade and I know they will LOVE their next teacher too! White Oak is such a great place!
This week we are learning….
(several things are a continuation from last week. It is so hard to get everything in especially at the end of the school year! NOTE: I am almost finished assessing all of the kiddos with reading levels/TPRI! I am sooo proud of how far they have all come since the beginning of the year!)
