My students have been doing a little bit of writing to their future Second Grade teachers telling them why they will make great second grade students. I had to share this particular piece of writing because it's just plain funny!
Dear Second Grade Teacher,
I will be the most awesome second grade student you will ever have in your class and you will POP your socks off when you see me doing stuff. I will focus and listen, do my work and be responsible every day and participate.
Nothing like being completely confident in one's abilities...all I can say is it's a good thing his second grade teacher can't see his handwriting, spelling and punctuation because she might just have a heart attack.
