From the author and illustrator of Our Class is a Family, this touching picture book expresses a teacher’s sentiments and well wishes on the last day of school. Serving as a follow up to the letter in A Letter From Your Teacher: On the First Day of School, it’s a read aloud for teachers to bid a special farewell to their students at the end of the school year.
Through a letter written from the teacher’s point of view, the class is invited to celebrate and to reflect back on memories made, connections formed, and challenges met. The letter expresses how proud their teacher is of them, and how much they will be missed. It also assures them that they are always welcome to come back to visit, and that their teacher is cheering them on for all of the exciting things to come in the future. Students can leave their classroom on the last day of school knowing that they have an everlasting bond with their teacher and classmates.
There is a blank space on the last page for teachers to sign their own name, so that students know that the letter in the book is coming straight from them. With its sincere message and inclusive illustrations, A Letter From Your Teacher: On the Last Day of School is a valuable addition to any elementary school teacher’s classroom library.
