Last Days of First Grade

Palmer had an eventful week his last week of first grade.   The Friday before he was able to bring a board game from home to teach to the class since he met his reading goal.  He picked Minion Operation.  Monday he was able to wear pajamas to school for a read-a-thon.  On Tuesday, Brody, the twins and I met him and his class at the local park for a teddy bear picnic.  They also had the fire department come right after school and spray all the kids with a hose.  Palmer was soaked!  Wednesday was Field Day.  Thursday our family joined Palmer in his classroom for a slideshow of the year, awards and refreshments.  This week is a good indication of how inventive and creative his teacher, Mrs. Bayles has been this past year.  I've been really impressed with her caliber of teaching.  She put a lot of time and effort into her classroom activities, and Palmer has really grown because of it.  He ends his first grade year reading on a third grade level, and he is a whiz at math.  He loves learning and loves going to school!  We're very thankful to have had Mrs. Bayles as his teacher.
