So one of my beloved colleagues is retiring after teaching for 35 years. I wanted my class to make something for her. We made the ABC's of Retirement-I assigned each kid a letter and asked them to come up with something that began with that letter a grown-up could do with a lot of free time on their hands. These were their best ideas:
A is for app shopping.
I is for internet (I liked this because I thought for sure he'd go for the obvious "ice cream".
K is for Kangaroo-I love this one because she drew the teacher in the pouch! :)
Live-so simple. Just live.
Be Queen of the castle
R for Read-this illustration made me think of Charlotte's Web which ironically is a book
this particular teacher would read with her students every year.
Sign autographs. How's that for an original answer!
I hope she likes it and that it gives her some inspiration for what to do with all her free time now. :)
