I am so excited to introduce you to Bradford, a new addition to our fifth grade classroom. He was just added to our class this weekend, and I really think you will like him.
Let me tell you a few things about Bradford.
He is calm, friendly, relaxed, loves to swim, and enjoys spending time soaking in the rays from the sun. While he is sometimes shy, he is an excellent listener. He also wears a “jacket” that protects him from the rain and wind. It seems as though he likes to be prepared for any weather changes.
I do want you to know that there is something a little surprising about Bradford. He has the longest nails I have ever seen! When you meet him, you will have to look at his nails! But, please try not to make it too obvious because you don’t want him to feel self-conscious, right?
What do you think about him so far?
Do you want to meet Bradford? I hope so!
Oh, and by the way . . . Bradford is una tortuga. Una tortuga is a turtle.
Below is a picture of him on his first day in our classroom!
Look! He’s even checking out some reading skill books!
I can tell he’s going to be a great learner – just like you. 🙂
