    This is it! At long last we have reached the 180th and final academic day of the school year. Though I really have nothing much to report on this last What We Did Today entry, I still wanted to do it since I started it at the beginning of the year and I wanted to see it through to its completion. I am happy to say that I have done so!

    This is it! At long last we have reached the 180th and final academic day of the school year. Though I really have nothing much to report on this last What We Did Today entry, I still wanted to do it since I started it at the beginning of the year and I wanted to see it through to its completion. I am happy to say that I have done so!
    It has been a long and crazy year with so many changes throughout, especially in literacy. But, we persevered and managed to make it to the end and for that I am grateful. It is with great pleasure that I have seen your child grow from a just-out-2nd-grader to an almost 4th grader. While all of us look forward to the last day of school (especially teachers!) it is also a day that I dread since it means having to say goodbye. This is especially more difficult for me because I will not be here in August when your child returns. While I wouldn’t have seen your child much anyway, it is still a big goodbye. Also, it is difficult for me to say goodbye to you parents too!
    Parents: thank you very much for all of your support, gifts, kind words, and for the partnership that we had in helping your child grow during this year. I really couldn’t have done it without you and I cherish the relationship that we have since it made such a difference with both your child and with me.
    So, what DID we do today since that is the title of this page? There was no morning warm up so the students were able to draw to their hearts’ content. We straightened up the room, cleaned up, and watched movies after being outside for an extended time.
    Though I will not be returning to Barringer in August, my email address will remain the same so you are welcome to contact me anytime. CMS asks its teachers to check their email during the summer at least once a week but I check mine constantly. The only time that I may not respond quickly is towards the end of next month when I will be out of town but otherwise I will respond as quickly as I can.
    The mobile app will undergo some changes but it will still be online and supported. I will delete the contents of What We Did Today (mobile version) right before the first day of school in August. I am going to keep it up for the new parents so they can get an idea of what to expect.
    The wiki page is another matter. I am at this time debating whether or not to keep it as is, scrap it and create a new one, or do a new webpage using a different format such as Weebly. We shall see. If all of this changes and you are interested in checking out what I am doing, the current wiki page will have a link to the new one should this happen.
    I wish that I had more to say and amazingly profound words of wisdom to impart but I really don’t. At this point, I am like a vehicle that is coming to a shuddering stop after using up the last drop of fuel.
    So, with that I end the What We Did Today blog for the 2013-2014 school year. May the years ahead be fulfilling in every way!

    Here we go! We have entered the final “week” of the school year – more like: the final two days of school. The final warm up activity had to change due to the lack of time. It still involved coordinates on a grid but not as complex as what I had originally intended to assign.

    Here we go! We have entered the final “week” of the school year – more like: the final two days of school. The final warm up activity had to change due to the lack of time. It still involved coordinates on a grid but not as complex as what I had originally intended to assign.
    I have continued packing up things and getting the room ready for the post school year clean up. I am still getting odds and ends packed away and it never ceases to amaze me how much stuff I accumulate. My wife always bemoans the loss of an entire side of the garage too since the stuff has to go somewhere. I am really hoping that the new school will be ready and available for us to move in soon rather than the usual mad rush in August. But, that is neither here nor there.
    Tomorrow will mark not only the final day of the school year for the students but will also mark the final entry for What We Did Today. The reasons are:
    - There is no more “we” in What We Did Today
    - I highly doubt any parents will be reading this after tomorrow anyway
    - I won’t have the time
    - There is nothing interesting to write about unless you find reading about getting stuff turned in, signed in, signed out, paperwork filled in, filled out, filled up, etc to be highly entertaining. Yeah, I didn’t think so either ha ha ha
    After lunch we did some more reading aloud and then I had the class empty their desks and throw away/recycle all of the garbage that has accumulated in the short period of time since the last clean up. It never ceases to amaze me how nasty their desks get in such a small amount of time.
    Then, I showed the remainder of Surf’s Up before putting in Finding Nemo.
    As tomorrow will be the final day of school, I want to remind everyone that anything left behind will be given away/thrown away/recycled if not picked up by the end of the day on Thursday. I am leaving around 11:15 on Thursday to tour my new school but I will leave my room unlocked.
    On Wednesday, I will be very busy getting everything turned in and other last minute things that need to be done.

    Happy final Friday of the school year! Today also marked the final “normal” math warm-up and I made it a bit daunting to keep them focused. It wasn’t necessarily hard but it did require a lot of steps to solve and no calculators were used. I am putting the calculators away to turn them in as part of the annual end-of-year rush.
