The Hello Goodbye Window

We also read the story: The Hello Good Bye Window, where a little girl visits her grandparents and has a special hello/goodbye routine that she does with them through the special window.

The students practiced their cutting skills as they cut strips of paper to create their own hello goodbye windows and each of them also drew a picture of something they saw out of their window at their house.

Afterwards, we practiced our social-emotional skills making feeling faces out of our classroom hello goodbye window.
