It was the end of August
We bought our school supplies
I started waking up earlier
Parents are smiling
I slept extra late
It was almost my birthday
Meet and Greet
You meet Mr. Kipling
You make your lunch
My parents encourage me to organize my supplies
You get excited to learn new information
Our parents fill out many papers
I go to bed earlier
Come back from vacation
Come in earlier from outside
My mom started talking about it
My mom changes my schedule, school work before friends
Pool season has ended
When my mom gets an email
When your class lists come out
When I meet my teacher
Back to school signs in the stores
Advertisements for school clothes
Your Mom drags you out of bed and says, “It’s the last day of school.”
You start cleaning out the classroom.
It’s only a half day, a Friday, and it’s June
It starts to rain
We start taking our notebooks home
Mr. Kipling goes home
Third grade visits
We start to know each other for real
Summer camps about to start
The teacher gets flowers
When you no longer have to get up to an alarm
The lockers are clean
When you see Wheel Man
Fifth grade award ceremony
Don’t ask, “What do I do next?”
No more Delta planes
You show up to school and no one is there
You ain’t got no alibi
Coincidence? I think not!
Pizza or sub?
It’s snowing!! (no kidding!)
Oh I guess I didn’t read carefully enough
Subs and oranges… we love fractions!
Can you lift Olivia with your pinkie?
Twenty bottles of mustard
I caught me a Yank!
Can I have a hamburger?
Ninja in a bush
What if you don’t have a pinkie? (I love what if questions)
Fight nice children
Stop breathing my air!
You win the fur-lined bathtub
The arctic willow
Kill each other quietly
Staking our claim by putting flags on our desks
Don’t die in math class
No flying in the bathroom
The flag is as hard as rock
The British are coming
Blame It on the Wolf
Let it Go
Hansel a boy? Gretel a girl? Little Red Riding Hood?
|Welcome to Fourth Grade|
You know that school is about to start when…
Labor Day comes
You see the signs in the stores, “Summer is About to End”
The cars start showing up in front of the school.
Back to School Sales
I go to registration to find out who my teacher is.
The leaves start to fall.
You get the tingling sensation that you are missing something.
You come to school to put your stuff in your desk.
My mom takes me on a huge shopping trip.
I get letters from the school.
Fantasy football draft is about to start.
Your friends start talking about school.
Mom buys my school supplies
It’s Meet and Greet
You get the supply list.
It is September 1st
August is almost over.
Kids start showing up at your fire hydrant.
Mom wakes you up and says, “It’s the first day of school, Honey.”
You don’t get to stay up late.
My dad takes us on a big trip.
Posters go up on the main doors.
It gets darker sooner.
