A Thank You to a Wonderful Teacher – Musica Mitts

Originally posted on June 23, 2013

My daughter has had a marvelous year this year in school. Her Grade 2 teacher has been so wonderful. She is so involved with the children, and relishes the chance to work with different personalities and learning styles for the challenge of it. I have seen my girl blossom this year both academically and socially. This teacher believes that reading and the occasional math game are the only homework that children need at this level, because children need to have fun, and have outside activities, and be, well, children. In addition to her classroom, she is at every extra-curricular night at the school and she volunteers with the Girl Guides as a leader. I have no idea where she finds the time!

Not only is this teacher wonderful overall, but she is also highly musical – with a fellow teacher she runs the primary choir, and has a song for every concept – singing in math and science classes – what a wonderful idea! It was a perfect fit for my daughter, who sings, well, constantly.

I wanted to do something special for this teacher – to do something that required a commitment on my part to show her how appreciated she is for going the extra mile for her kids. My daughter picked these stranded colourwork mitts with a music theme (pattern here). I have been doing a few rows here and there over the past few weeks. Hopefully they will come in handy for Mme. L on yard duty!
