Good morning, friends! We're back for another edition of Sunday Morning Letters!

Dear Mentee A,
Your room looks beautiful and I can't wait for your new kiddos to meet you! We're going to have such a great year...thank you for sharing your first year with me (not that you really had a choice...) :-)
Love, Mentor

Dear Mentee G,
I know you said you're "a big nerd," but I love that I'm going to learn so much from you this year. I know we'll have a good three days still getting everything ready for your kinders, and I can't wait to see you with them on their first day!
Love, Mentor

Dear Pepsi and Coke,
I really try to end our relationship. Like, all. the. time. But I just can't seem to let you go, so a drink every other day or so will just have to be okay.
Sincerely, your happily caffeinated teach

Dear RB,
I'm so happy that your blog is good to go! I love that both you and your coteacher are blogging and I'm looking forward to reading more from you. And, I'm so glad we're friends. If you ever need anything, I'm here for you girl!
Love, your buddy (I almost wrote butty, hahhahaaaa)
PS - I did not love when you pointed and laughed at me on Friday before my speech...but looking back, it's hilar!

Dear Jamberry Nails,
I'm not going to lie, I got tons of compliments when I was jammin with my jammicure, and I loved the patterns! But it just took so long to get it done myself. So, I will try again in the future, but for now, I'm off to the manicurist.
Love, lazybones

Dear students,
I can't wait to see you....tomorrow! (and maybe today if you come to the back to school picnic!)
Love, Teach

Dear Bucktown Arts Fest,
I CAN'T WAIT  till next weekend when you'll be just two neighborhood blocks away. I'm saving my pennies for some great new art!
Love, a very excited neighbor

Dear CN,
You've been amazing as we have worked on blogs. Thank you for the shout-outs and for supporting all the new bloggers who will begin on their journeys. When RB texted me all excited for her first comment, I just *knew* it was from you...and I was right! You're #amazeballs :-)
Hugs, Blogging buddy

Dear Roomie,
So funny how amazeballs was added to the dictionary! You knew I'd appreciate that, right? Thought of you on my last letter!
Love, Roomie

Dear Team Heartless,
I still have the most special place in my heart for our team. When we were together for those two years, I knew we had a really cool thing, but I didn't know exactly how special it was. I still look back on those years with such love and admiration for each of you. I think a big part of the reason I miss middle school is, in large part, to you all!
xo, a very proud teach

So, readers, do you have letters to share? It's time to link up! Write your post and submit your link here! We'll be back at this again in two weeks, so plan to meet me here at BigTime Literacy again!

Have a great week - and if it's your first week back, enjoy the special moments with your students!


  1. Great minds think alike- I also wrote letters to my mentees and roomie! I'm also looking forward to Rachel's blog. Finding new blogs to *stalk* is always exciting! LOL. ;)

  2. Sounds like you are ready for a new year! Thanks for hosting the link up :) I'm having a 100 follower giveaway, so check it out if you get a chance.

  3. This is a really great idea and I actually had a lot of fun doing it. Thanks!

  4. love your letters! I need to figure out how to do this whole link up thing so I can write some too!! :-) See you in the morning, roomie!

  5. Thanks again, friend. You're amazing! And I didn't mean to point and laugh. You were just so serious! I was surprised. But you did a great job presenting, and I'm sure you inspired others to start blogging as well!

  6. I finally have a few minutes to catch up with my favorite teacher blogs! I loved your presentation and was actually kind of excited to be part of it :) thanks for all that you do and for being so supportive of us newbies!

  7. I love this linky!! It is so much fun to read everyone's letters. Thanks for doing this. I am also a mentor for two teachers this year. I love watching them, growing with them, and learning together!

  8. This is a such a cute idea! I just published a post to link up... and then realized the collection is closed :) oops! Hopefully you'll post another one today!

    1. Hey there - I am new to the linkies - but I will open it again! I'm doing letters every other Sunday, but I will remember next time to leave it open for the whole two weeks in between! Check back and link up - going to fix it now! :-)
      Thanks for joining!

  9. I did just as Jenny and linked up too only to see it closed. Oh well...time to get back to bloggin anyway.

    1. Hey Carla! So I post that blog every other week - I'll have a new one up next Sunday (It's probably kinda confusing - Perhaps I didn't explain it right!) But I'm going to go open up the linky again! Sorry for the confusion, but so glad you are joining in!

  10. Very nice post here thank you for it. I always like excellent content for this post. Good and cool idea and a great blog for different types of important information. I have learned many new things from your blog.How you can boost your Mouse Clicking Speed, In this complete information.

  11. An excellent effort. Please refer to the page if you need any assistance with morse. Morse code encoder is a telegraphic communication method that uses preset combinations of short and long components to represent letters and numbers. Thank you.
