  5. Mrs Hamman,

    When is the next mystery state? I liked the last mystery state with Washington. We should do that with other states too.


    • Clarissa,

      We’ll have another Mystery State after we get back from break. I’m trying to set some up right now. Usually if the other teacher has a preference for how they want to do Mystery State, I just go with what they want to do. Some teachers are not able to make two calls, but some are. I agree, I like it when we have really tough clues!

  6. Mrs.Hamman! Do you remember when we did Shakespeare quotes (I still remember them!)? Do you do that with your class now?
    I miss you!

    your past student,
    Gina T.

    • Hi Gina! Yes, we still do the Shakespeare quotes every year, but this year’s class didn’t all memorize all of them like your fifth grade class did! I still show videos of your class when I do the Shakespeare story. Thanks so much for your comment!

  7. Dear Miss Hamman’s class you did a lot of cool projects. Do you know any more cool projects I can do for my Science Fair coming up if you do let me know.

  8. Hi Mrs. Hamman this year has been so fun I can’t believe it is ending I am so sad I will miss everyone.

  10. Dear Mrs.Hamman,

    Have a good rest of the teaching day.

  11. Hello,
    I’m an eighth grade student from North Kirkwood Middle School in St. Louis, MO. I actually stumbled opon this site by accident, but after seeing a picture of Rubik’s cube, I didn’t exit out. I’ve been obsessed since 4th grade and can now solve a cube in 26.1 seconds (my record). I just wanted to say that they should continue cubing! It definitely beats video games in my opinion. Thanks!

  12. Dear Mrs. Hamman,

    I’m an elementary school counselor in Winston-Salem, NC and I developed “Bouncy Bands” for students to have a way to release their extra energy and anxiety when they work by bouncing their feet on a band that is tied to the front two legs of their desk. Can I send you a free sample for your third graders to take turns trying it out? I would appreciate their feedback on what they like and any suggestions for improvements.
