What an exciting week it has been! I have made it through my first set of conferences and I'm happy to report they all went great! Yay! On another more exciting note, our students got to have tea with the QUEEN this week!!!! Can you just imagine how stoked they were?!?! Here's how it all went down...
We started off by reading the story "Tea for Ruby" by Sarah Ferguson. After the story I told the kids how I received some very exciting mail today. I proceeded by letting them share a few guesses of what it might be about. Then I took out an invitation from the queen! We were invited to a tea party with the queen. Can you picture the priceless looks on their faces...even the boys!?! They couldn't believe it! The following days consisted of RSVPing to the tea party, practicing our manners, oh and did I say PRACTICING OUR MANNERS!?! :)
The day of the tea party finally arrived and all of my students came to school in their fancy clothes and smiling faces! They were SO beyond cute!! Our amazing moms that volunteered to help with this event did an outstanding job with the planning. Each kiddo had their own tea cup and saucer that they got to decorate before the tea party. At the end of the day we walked down to the gym with our best posture to attend this fancy affair.
Our queen was our principal, Mrs. Teeter, and she played the part perfectly! The moms prepared little snacks and "tea" (lemonade) and they were dressed up fancy too. The details they added to the party were awesome from the name plates to the table cloths and table settings...everything was outstanding! The students practiced using their manners and also wrote on a quilt square a manner they needed to remember. They were going to put the squares together to make a Quilt for the Queen!

At the end of the tea party, we had some practice walking with good posture to try to keep the saucer on their head. We also learned how to curtsy and bow like princes and princesses would do! What a special memory we made!!
