Last Day Blues by Julie Danneberg

Recommended Grades: 2-5

It’s the end of the school year and in Last Day Blues, Mrs. Sarah Jane Hartwell is finding it hard to say goodbye to her class.  The class comes up with a plan to make sure she won’t be sad and miss them.  But the teachers have plans of their own. 

Lesson ideaYour school year may have already ended, but some are not ending until this week or later.  Read aloud this book as an end of the year “goodbye” to students.  Ask students to write one sentence or one paragraph explaining one or more things they may miss about school, their class, their teachers, or their classmates.  Perhaps, you may want to write a sentence or a paragraph as well explaining what you will miss.
