Nicklas completed his last assignment of fourth grade. I can't believe I have a fifth grader now! Luckily, in Bloomington the elementary schools go up to sixth grade.
His assignment was to write a letter to his teacher with a reading recommendation:
Dear Mrs. Darby,
It was a privilege to be your student this year. You were a very nice teacher. I enjoyed you very much.
One of my favorite subjects was social studies. Also, because I am interested in geography, when we did each region I also knew a lot about each location. The third thing I liked is the government unit because listening to what other people had to say and voting on the bills was fun (and my bill passed).
