    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 enough that I don't think the would at the beginning of the year.

    I love saying one of these to kids sometimes, instead of goodbye...

    Goodbye Poem! I feel like the end of the day is always so rushed to get out the door. Maybe we could say the poem and then leave for the buses????
