Your Illinois Reports
So, I went into school today to read your reports and work on report cards. I will admit, I was dreading all the work I had to do, but once I settled in with your reports? I was amazed! So many good things were done. All your hard work was evident. I learned things about Illinois that I didn't know!
Just like we had three former 4Sers' reports to look at this year, I want you to keep your report safe and sound so you can share it next year. Oh, there were so many good pictures, drawings, facts, ideas!
Be proud of yourselves. You did a lot of thinking. You did a lot of researching. You looked at a lot of information and decided what was best to use. You were creative. You did some wonderful drawings. You shared a lot of ideas. I was blown away!
I am proud of you! Feel good about this!
*This is my fifth (and a half) year teaching fourth grade. *I'm married, but I don't use my married name (it's Seaman). *I have a 28-year-old son, Mac. He lives in Louisiana. *I live in Aurora. *I have two dogs, Skipper Roo Seaman and Gilly Crew Seaman, they are both females. *I love to read. *I don't have one favorite book. That would be like saying I have one favorite student!
*Taking care of the Earth is important to me, so this year I decided to start thrift shopping. My goal is purchase 80% of my clothing from thrift stores over the next year.
*I'm an official volunteer for Operation Christmas Child. *I do not like to cook, but I do like to bake. *I watch television, too. *I love to walk--fast! *I enjoy riding my bike. *The White Sox are my favorite team, the Cubs are my least favorite. *I still love many Cub fans! *I'm not a big football fan, but in the fall I root for the Bears, the Colts, and the LSU Tigers. *I enjoy Charlie Brown and his friends, they teach important lessons. *Red Vines are one of my favorite candies, but I don't eat it much (especially now that I have braces). *I have three big brothers and one "little" sister--they are all taller than I am! *My mom and dad are in heaven, and I miss them everyday. *I like to vacuum. *My birthday is in October. *I love keeping in touch with my former students. *What else would you like to know?
