I hope all of the moms had a wonderful Mother’s Day! The poem your child wrote for you was based on a book I read to them called, Love That Dog, by Sharon Creech. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it. There is a part that makes me tear up every time. The poem is filled with figurative language and hopefully captured clear ideas to show you how much your child loves you.
After the busy days of last week, this week looks like a regular pace.

Last year several third grade ideas were used for the tshirt and poster.
