Hello Everyone!

Do you have a poem or letter you give your kids every year at the end of the year to say good-bye? If so, can you post it?

Thanks!
Nicholette

I just happened to be looking for those myself, and came across two that I liked. Here they are!

Here's number one:

You're a very special person,
And I wanted you to know,
How much I enjoyed being your teacher.
How fast the year did go!

Please come back to visit me
As through the grades you grow,
Try hard to learn all that you can
There is so much to know!

The one thing I tried to teach you
To last your whole life through,
Is to know that you are SPECIAL
There is no one else like you!

Here's number two:

I'm glad I was your teacher
I've come to love you so
I can't believe the end is here
I hate to see you go!
Remember all the fun we had
In all the things we did
But most of all remember...
You're a very special kid!

Hope these help!

I try to get a copy of Miss Nelson is Missing and write a short poem in the front of the book for each student. I just make one up.

End of the year letter

This is a letter I found years ago online. I still can't read it without getting teary! I have used it and gotten many compliments. Thanks to whomever wrote it!

Dear Parents,
I give you back your child, the same child you confidently entrusted to my care last fall. I give him back pounds heavier, inches taller, months wiser, more responsible, and more mature then he was then.
Although he would have attained his growth in spite of me, it has been my pleasure and privilege to watch his personality unfold day by day and marvel at this splendid miracle of development.
I give him back reluctantly, for having spent nine months together in the narrow confines of a crowded classroom, we have grown close, have become a part of each other, and we shall always retain a little of each other.
Ten years from now if we met on the street, your child and I, a light will shine to our eyes, a smile to our lips, and we shall feel the bond of understanding once more, this bond we feel today.
We have lived, loved, laughed, played, studied, learned, and enriched our lives together this year. I wish it could go on indefinitely, but give him back I must. Take care of him, for he is precious.
Remember that I shall always be interested in your child and his destiny, wherever he goes, whatever he does, whoever he becomes. His joys and sorrows Iíll be happy to share.
I shall always be his friend.

On May 5, 2009, I became suddenly ill and was rushed to the hospital (rather than to report to my 3rd grade students.) I remained in the hospital for a week and a half. Then learned that I would not be returning at all for the rest of the year. I have been devistated by this and so have my students.

I want to put together a letter for them before the year is over letting them know that I am so sorry that I am not there with them right now but that I am in their hearts.

Does anyone have an approach to this for my 3rd graders?

Much thanks
Mary Ellen

Dear Parents,

I give you back your child, the same child you confidently entrusted to my care last fall. I give your child back pounds heavier, inches taller, months wiser, more responsible, and more mature. Although they would have attained this growth in spite of me, it has been my pleasure and privilege to watch their personality unfold day by day and marvel at this splendid miracle of development.

I give your child back reluctantly, for having spent third grade together in the narrow confines of a crowded classroom, we have grown close, have become a part of each other, and we shall always retain a little of each other.

Ten years from now if we met on the street, your child and I, a light will shine to our eyes, a smile to our lips, and we shall feel the bond of understanding once more, this bond we feel today.

Thank you for sharing your child with me and my class.
