This book follows a group of students on their last day of school. The children worry about their poor teacher during the last few weeks of school because they believe she will have nothing to do during the summer. Great book to read aloud on the last few days of school. Children will love the sweet poem and funny jokes. Teachers can also use this book to teach about inferring.
Ok, this one was super cute- talking about how the kids think their teacher is going to be so sad all summer when school gets out. They make her a cute present. But then it has a little surprise at the end! Definitely a fun one to read near the end of the year. Good one for predictions too.
