Dear Parents and Families,

Wow, what a year! To better state that- what a GREAT year! We have covered a lot of material and participated in many fun
and exciting projects. We started to develop skills needed for the fourth grade. We made many new friends along the way too.

Each of your children has brought such joy and happiness to our classroom. I was so fortunate to have such a wonderful group of children this past year. My friends and family often laugh at me when I refer to your children as “my kids”. They are like my own children. They all have touched my life and this school year in very positive and rewarding ways. I hope as the years go by that they keep in touch. Today’s technology can help us continue the relationships we have built. I encourage and welcome correspondences from you and your...

I teach 3rd, but I'm sure you could use my letter and change a few things to make it fit 1st grade.

Here is a letter that I have used:




Dear Parents,


Well, this is it! Here we are at the last day and a half of school for your kindergartner! It seems like just yesterday when you were dropping them off for the first time!


Over the summer vacation, I strongly encourage you to read to your child every day, practice handwriting in both upper and lower case, and practice counting—both orally and in writing, and to review the sight words that we have been working on all year.Doing one or two of these activities each day over the summer vacation will help to keep your child’s skills sharp.


The Wilmington Library will have its Summer Reading Program. It’s a great way to keep your child reading. Also, try...

Dear Parents,
I am writing you one last time to thank you for sharing our children with me this past school year. It seems like only a few weeks ago when Mrs. XXX and I were introducing ourselves at PTA Curriculum Night. I believe we all managed to pull through very nicely. I hope that along the way the children have gained a bit more knowledge, helpful tips on organizing themselves, accessing information and, of course, flexibility!
I encourage you to set aside some time this summer to review reading and math skills, especially the multiplication tables. I’m including some suggestions and tips to keep some basic Language and Math skills fresh. I hope you will find these helpful. Don't forget the AKS (Academic Knowledge and Skills) booklet that was handed out in the beginning of the year. This...

Keep Learning Fresh All Summer Long
Posted by:CindyLynn #136455

I vary my summer suggestions depending on my class. Some years I send a copy of the activity book Set Sail for Summer Grade 1 Review Carson-Dellosa Publishing Company, Inc. (Copyright permission is given to the teacher to make copies if they purchase a copy.)

Other years, I send the following letter:

Dear Parents,
Summer vacation is almost here! To keep skills strong and learning fresh, try some of the following ideas...

Join the San Antonio Public Library summer reading program.
Read every day...this summer would be a great time to choose a chapter book and read aloud each evening as a family.
Keep a vacation journal if you travel this summer. Ask your child to write about and illustrate a journal page for each day of your vacation.
Bake cookies together (great way to practice reading and...

Why not...
Posted by:Tracey276 #136529

Why not have the kids come up with a list of what they've learned this year, and have them help you write the letter telling about all they have done and learned?

Another suggestion is to write individual letters and brag about all the things their child has accomplished this year. This will probably take a bit longer than you expected to spend on it, but it's the kind of thing that they will LOVE. What parent doens't like to have their child bragged about, especially when they don't have to do it themselves?

End of the Year Messages
Posted by:Jonesy #136530

I would send a letter or email that list the children and one things about each child. The parents like to see this about their own child but also about their child's classmates. For example - Bob was very helpful this year, Emily was a great encourager to her classmates, Jill was very creative in all her projects, etc. Hope this helps you end the year with a positive thought about each child.

Poem
Posted by:ABM #136531

I'm interested to see what others use. I've always used the following:

I’m glad I was your teacher.
I've come to love you so.
I can't believe the end is here.
I hate to see you go.

Remember all the fun we had
in all the things we did
But most of all remember...
You're a very special kid!

End of year poem
Posted by:Kristine #136051

I do an ABC acrostic of events that have happened through the year and put each of their names in it. For example

A is for Alex and Art class every Wednesday
B is for Battle of the Books winners
C is for Cara, Carly and caring for each other

etc.
