Another great year in 4th grade has wrapped up and students are ready to enjoy summer vacation! I will still be working though, as I am moving on to fifth grade this year as well. I will be teaching 5th grade reading and am excited for this new adventure!
See you in Middle School!
Happy Summer and don't forget to read a good book!

This is a story written in free verse poem as a journal written between a student and teacher. The character doesn't understand or like poetry at first, but as the year goes on, this begins to change. An interesting twist at the end reveals the reason for the title.
