End of the Year Farewell

Wow!  The year is over this week - I can't believe it!  What an amazing and wonderful year it was!  I had so much fun with all of you and loved all the reading we did!  It was so fun to see you all grow as readers, writers, and people.  I can't tell you how happy I am that this is not goodbye and that I will be continuing on to Columbia Intermediate School with you!  I'll also be seeing a lot of you during the summer at our Mock Newbery Club 2014!!  So, I'm not going to say goodbye - just, until next time...



Books We've Shared




We didn't get a chance to take a last Spin Cam of SLE. :-(

Check out the number of books read this year!

Silly Picture!


Keep reading, everyone, and check the classroom blog often - I'll be putting up book reviews of 2013 books for our Mock Newbery Club throughout the summer, so you can check them out from the library. I'll also be writing up blog posts about our Newbery Club meetings during the summer.  Also, anytime you read a book you want to share, comment on the blog!!

    *tearing up* again after watching that video. I will miss you so much, Mrs.Mueller. Can you put new popular newbery books?

    1. Caleb - I love that you love the video! I posted a bunch of 2013 books on this post:
      Also - take a look at They review cool new books every month. At the first Mock Newbery, I'll bring along some books, but in the meantime, libraries should have the ones I posted on that blog post. :-) I just finished A Tangle of Knots. It was good!

  28. Caleb I miss you so much.June 2, 2013 at 8:55 PM

    Thanks Mrs. Mueller. I went to the library and I got 6 total books I was so Happy. I even got a 2013 book called Jinx it looks good. I also got a book called Rot and Ruin, it is good so far but there is some language...and many more books like I'm starting the Vespers rising sires and continuing the Sluggers sires.I miss you so much and it is only the third day of summer.Thank you for being a great teacher.

    (p.s I still got teary eyed when I watched the video for the like tenth time!)

    1. Caleb,
      I'm so excited that you went to the library and got lots of good books! I've seen Jinx but haven't read it. You'll have to tell us about it! I like the cover and summary! I looked up Rot and Ruin since I haven't heard of it - looks like a young adult title, so that's probably why it has language. It's about zombies, right?! Creepy! Glad you're continuing on in some series. I miss all of you, too! That's why I planned summer book club meetings - I wouldn't have wanted to go all summer without seeing you all, hearing what you're all up to, and talking about books! :-) Happy reading!!

    2. Caleb I miss you so much.June 4, 2013 at 5:26 PM

      I can't wait to get more books.What books have you gotten?I know you have gotten a lot!I miss you so much.I can't wait to go to the meetings!

    3. Caleb, I'm going to read One Came Home by Amy Timberlake next, right after I finish some adult books I've been wanting to read. I also want to read Doll Bones by Holly Black and an upcoming book called Every Day After by Laura Golden, coming out June 11th. I'm going to write a new blog post, so stay tuned!

  29. Caleb I miss you so much.June 6, 2013 at 10:54 AM

    I have just asked my mom to request Doll Bones and Every Day After. They both sound like really good books. I can't wait to discuss them at the meetings(I can't wait for the meetings!:-) I will see you then.Thank you for being the greatest teacher of all time!

    1. Oh good! I hope you get them soon! I'm excited about the meetings, too, Caleb! :-)
