Goodbye Friend!

Sunday, November 30, 2014


Why does it seem that only our favorite students move during the school-year? I lost one of my favorites this last week and I was so sad to see him go. His family is moving to Texas and I have known since the beginning of the year but it is still sad because he was SO GOOD. 


When students move from our class mid-year we make a little "Goodbye Friend!" book to make sure we all say a heartfelt goodbye and let our friend know they will be missed. I hope that this eases the transition for the student because we try and be encouraging about their move and new school. 

Each students writes a letter and illustrates a picture. We bind all the pages together and it becomes a cute little book. 

While the rest of the class is busy writing our letters, I ask the student who is moving to color the cover of their book (I provide them with a black and white version of the above picture).  

Here is a few samples of our latest "Goodbye Friend" book:

This is such a lovely way to say goodbye...we sign a school t-shirt, but this would be perfect to go with it! (And yes, the best ones are always the ones to move, aren't they?)

What a lovely way to say goodbye to a student. :) It would be great to have something ready to go -- sometimes it happens so quickly that it's hard to get something together in time, but it is SO important.
