With that being said, here is what we did on our last day. I made them all T-Shirts that said "I survived 2nd grade!" and we signed the back, we created memory books, and at the very end of our day I had the parents come in for an award ceremony and we watched a slideshow I created them for a surprise. They all got a little goodie bag with a copy of the slideshow to take home with them. I didn't expect to have kids crying, let alone parents! They also got to exit 2nd grade on a "red carpet" when it was time to go.
It was a tough day, but I am so glad these students have touched my life forever!! Goodbye 2014-15 school year!
