Matteo graduated preschool this past week! He had a wonderful teacher & a great first school experience. I was so grateful to her, & I wanted to make sure that I gave her something that expressed that.
I wrote a short poem for his preschool teachers, laid it out with a photo that I had taken on our park day the last week of school, printed them out at Target, & put them in frames. His teachers loved them! So much so that his main teacher cried & gave me a huge hug, which of course made me cry :-p
Here is a generic printable version. You can print it as-is, or you can put your own picture over top of my generic one:
And here is the text for the poem if you’d like to use it separately:
When we started back in the fall, we were a little more timid & a little less tall.
We hugged our mommies & were greeted with a smile. Day after day spring, winter, & fall.
We spent a lot of time learning between those classroom walls.
We knew a few letters but didn’t know them all.
We learned our phone numbers in case we needed to make a call.
We learned about rhyming. “What rhymes with ball?”
We learned the days of the week & how to walk quietly down the hall.
We learned to love learning, which is most important of all.
A big thank you to our teachers for helping us grow, & we want you to know that we will miss you so!
