Owl Remember!

What a sad day. I'm really going to miss my little Owlets! Yesterday one of my demonstrative cuties said, "Mrs. Reck, I love you. You are in my heart with Jesus!" I don't tear up very easily, but that really got to me. Even the kids who usually choose high fives, or handshakes, were giving me lots of hugs.
 Yesterday we made a list of  what we will Owl-ways remember about first grade. I finally had to stop them when they reached the 20th thing they remembered.  It amazes me that the things that were often remembered were  the things that were the simplest. I was so happy to find THIS template to use for these owls...

Writing prompt: "Owl remember..."

Owl remember the pond study.

Owl remember the store.

Owl remember making new friends!

What a happy day. It was my last day of teaching for the year. My grades are done. My room is partially clean! I'm ready for rest and relaxation. I'm ready to spend time with my OWN kids! I'll be on a vacation for the next two weeks. I'll be spending time with my kids before they all go different ways. If you are going different ways this summer and you happen to be in Michigan, let me know, I'll show you some of the most beautiful places on earth! I'd love to have you visit!!


  1. Happy summer Jenny. If Idaho were closer to Michigan, I'd take you up on that offer. :)

  3. Me! I want to visit. :) I don't think it's in the cards this summer, but I am seriously thinking about a visit sometime. xo Happy vacation.


  4. So cute! My husband and I are high school arts teachers. I am recently retired. I wonder if you old have a post you would like to bring to my June choral love Linky party? Anything to do with choir or choral music or even music related creativity and creations would be great!

  5. Of course, I love all the owls. Hope you are having a wonderful break...miss your posts!
