    Last pinner said: "How to say goodbye to a kid" .... How I would say good bye to ANYONE :)

    Better than goodbye: We're going to use this poem for our launch at the end of the day. Everyone knows the first two lines, but I don't think they'll know the rest of it. Each day we'll add a couple lines until we know the whole thing. It's not inspirational, but it sure is fun. We could vary it as they leave, with me saying a line, and the kids responding with the next one. Later we might try writing new lines. I debated if 4th graders would think this is babyish, but it's funny enoug...

    How to say good bye... Oh, and it's, "Ciao, Ciao..." not, "Chow, chow..."!!!

    Post this near the door to teach the kids new ways to say goodbye? Maybe a new one each week/month - a list might be overwhelming. Higher functioning kids could help generate the list.

The Last Kid Makes It All Worth It - So very true. How quickly we forget in a mere few years. Next year, the internet will have been in public use for a mere 20 or so years. Back when Win95 held sway, there was virtually NO SPAM, Live Journal was popular, and YouTube, FaceBook, Twitter, Hulu, and so many more didn't exist. We still had loads of fun 140 characters was not a barrier to communication

I love this. I may have to make my own to hang on the wall!
