During the last week before Christmas Break some students bring in gifts for their teachers. It is very sweet. Sometimes you’ll find a gift mysteriously placed on your desk at recess. Sometimes they’ll hand it to you and say, “My mom told me to give you this. I don’t know what it is.” And sometimes the gifts come wrapped with lots of love and masking tape. Those were my personal favorite.
I use to try to wait till vacation to open my presents, but students always beg you to unwrap them.
“Thank you for the necklace you made. I can’t wait to wear it. “
“Thank you for the orange Kleenex box cover. I like how you wrote your name so big with purple glitter glue.”
“Thank you for the safety pin and paper clip Christmas tree ornament. You made this?! Wow! I thought for sure you bought it!”
“Ohhh…thank you. It’s beautiful. I love it. You made it?...Can you tell me about it?...Of course it’s a paperweight! Oh, it’s a beautiful paperweight. Thank you so much for the paperweight. Look everyone, it’s a paperweight. See?”
“Oh thank you for that hug…how did you know that is what I wanted and it’s fits me perfectly, just my size!!”
Merry Christmas my dear Riverview Community!!! I hope each and every one has a wonderful holiday season filled with cheer and surprises, simply because you deserve it!

The kids in my class researched and voted on a service project that they would like to do as a class. Once they decided on an idea, they made a speech for how they would ask neighbors and family to help them. The idea they had was to collect blankets for the Humane Society. So far we have a small corner of the room filled with blankets and the goal is to fill my Corolla with what they’ve gathered. This is them making a blanket to add to the collection.
In our class, we have been working on "How-to" writing. We had 6th-grade buddies come to help us publish our final drafts. We used a program called Adobe Spark which created an online book. The students added pictures to their book and recorded himself or herself reading their book.
