That's A Wrap!!


Talk about the best school year ever. 

If I had my way, I'd keep this group of kids forever! We had a fabulous year - a lot of great learning, but also, a lot of fun. A wonderful group of kind, helpful, smart kids and their next year's teacher will be so lucky! 

We took a first day of second grade picture back in late August and just yesterday, Friday, June 2, took a last day of second grade picture. Look how much each and every one of them has grown! They are just darling and I miss them already. 

Thank you all for making this year such a success. For your support and for raising such amazing individuals. It was a fun year. 

Have a terrific summer!!

Best Regards Always,

Final Research Project - Biomes!

The past month Room 16 has been learning more about the different biomes around the world. This learning culminated in a group biome project. The students focused on one of the following biomes: Fresh Water, Ocean, Desert, Tundra or Rain Forest. They put their non-fiction research skills to use once again and really enjoyed learning more about these amazingly different habitats. Each group presented on Friday morning before the LS Closing Program - they did a great job! 

TUNDRA - Akilah, Mikey and Anna 

OCEAN - Zach, Katie and Ollie 

FRESH WATER - Liv, Ellis, Wellstone and Erin 

RAIN FOREST - Oliver, Anika and Jack

DESERT - Alea, Leo and Julia
