The Q-U Wedding

We kicked off our Valentine’s Day at the wedding of (the letters) Q and U in the PCP’s classroom.  It was a darling and elaborate affair that is a much loved tradition in Mrs. B’s first grade class.  As the parents arrived, we were completely wowed by the pink and purple tulle explosion that surely must be what seven year old dreams are made of :-)

Every detail of the wedding was meticulously thought out, planned for, rehearsed and executed.  It was truly impressive!  The groomsmen dressed as quarterbacks, and the bridesmaids as queens.  The flower girl dropped quarters as she walked down the purple aisle and the “vowel family” was prominently represented in the front row.

I must admit that my heart went a bit aflutter as the PCP / the groom / the letter U made his merry way down the aisle.

All of the students perfectly executed their lines.  The PCP proudly pronounced to his bride “I do promise to stand by you in cursive and in manuscript.”  A high five sealed the deal.



Afterwards, the students served their parents at a small reception.  There were probably forty guests, with each student having at least one parent in attendance.

We couldn’t have been prouder of this sweet child.  I had to purposefully restrain myself from envisioning this same scene twenty years from now.

Their hard work was evident and the morning was not one we’ll soon forget.  We truly could not have lucked out with a better, more dedicated teacher!!  This was beyond “above and beyond”!

I love this! I was an elementary school teacher, but third grade not 1st. What a lovely memory for those kiddos- and a great way to cement the QU connection!

What a great class he has! Which school district does he go to? We live inside the Perimeter, but exploring areas with good schools and family friendly area.

Hilarious! I love this idea! I tell you what. Good teachers are wonderful blessings, aren't they?

What a creative idea...I'm going to pass it on to my two daughters (they are both early childhood teachers). Such a cute groom:)

Blessings,

This is absolutely the most awesome and hilarious thing I have ever seen! I had to share it with friends of mine who teach the younger grades! WHAT a great idea!

SO CUTE!!!!!! Elementary school is so much fun. Once your kids get to Middle and High school the parents are sort of left out in the cold (or so it is my experience). Enjoy those babies while you can. They will be grown before you know it.
