We had a special day on Monday! It was Notebook Day! I wish I would have taken a pic of the big ‘ole pile of wrapped up notebooks, but I was so excited to give them out that I forgot. Boo. 😦
But just like last year (and for many years, actually) my friends got a special gift wrapped up all special, with an even more special note attached. Here’s this year’s note:
The paper they were wrapped in was covered in moustaches! (On a side note, what is it with kids loving everything moustache lately?!)
Then it was time to pass them out. So each kiddo, one at a time, came up to sign the pledge (which I’ll share soon–it’s at school. 😦 ), get their secret package AND a new pen! The smiles on faces where SO GREAT!! Here’s a little bit of how our “signing ceremony” went:
Yeah…somehow I got cut off there at the end, sorry. 🙂
I love that DeShala was the one who coined this special day SepChristmas, since it was like Christmas in September! Yep, love it.
So once everyone pledged that they were going to do their best to grow and learn as writers this year, it was time. And so on the count of 3…
Here’s to a great writing journey this year, friends of Rm. 202! Let’s get this party started!
I remember getting our notebooks. Every one was so excited. It was great. I still have mine and I sill right on my own free time(sometimes) but I’m so happy for your class to reach this GREAT mile stone in their fifth grade lives with you!! 🙂
And I love that you are still writing with me–here! It really does make me smile every time I see a comment pop up with your name on it. 🙂 Keep it up, girlie–you definitely have a talent!
Awwww. Thanks. I try and check your blog to see if you have replied every day!! I really miss being in your class.
