You’ve been around the globe lately and once again you are put in a box to fly off to England. Mrs. Todd took you home to enjoy a nap before your journey began on Saturday. The weather was a perfect spring day so you loved the sunshine. You were put in a box that say Flat rate.
Mrs. Todd had to tell the man at Parcel Plus what was in the box with you. She put in a surprise or two but we can’t tell you what it is! She had to write the address down then he typed it and put it on the box so it would go back to North Yorkshire, England. She filled the box full so hopefully you aren’t to smashed.
You are on your way home after weeks in America. You’ve had many adventures around Monroe while here. Baseball games, soccer games, theme parks, the beach, malls (large shopping areas), out to eat and games at home. There were rainy days that remind you of home and sunny warm days too. There were thunder storms too.
Some things we’ve done with you at school is our final assessments in math, reading and writing , doing final projects, reading one last book and signing autograph /year books. We went to lunch and you got to meet our new friends from New Zealand the Snail and the Whale.
The last few days you helped draw flags for 73 countries. We had field day and recess and you cheered us on as we had fun. We learned how children in different parts of the world all play a form of hopscotch. You got to meet our Flat Friends as they returned home to Rocky River. You got to taste Tin Tams and Vegemite from Australia. You got to help clean and pack up the room.
We had an indoor picnic lunch the last day of school. You got to see us climb on the big yellow buses to head home for the summer. Some of us went by car or van. You got to have blue crushed ice and ice cream sundaes and watch a movie about the coral reef. You also got to see Sleeping Beauty and Snow White to celebrate our Fairy Tale unit. You got to help us with Reader’s Theater. You got to see us get our awards for World Education games and reading and math awards. We had three students come to school all 180 days- James, Elliott and Nicolas was here every day. Elliott has been in school every day for three years. Congratulations to these boys. You got to learn about the Queen’s diamond jubilee and we looked at the Olympics in ancient and modern times. You should arrive home in time for the real Olympics.
