Sorry for breaking the rule of blogging only once a day, but I just had to share these! I got the idea from Mrs. Morris at Simply 2nd Resources .
I am going to give mine out at Open House tomorrow afternoon. I put the children's names on them so I could keep up with who shows up for Open House. Those who don't show will get theirs on the first day of school, unless they come to the school Tuesday to meet me. I sent home a letter letting my students know they are in my class. In it, I offered to meet them during the day Monday or Tuesday if they couldn't make it from 4-6p Monday.
I am so pleased with how they look in my basket from one of my students last year! It's from Swirls and was full of goodies! His mom even paid for it to be monogrammed. I just took it over and told them what I wanted. She wanted me to have the option of my initials, name, or Mrs. S. ;) I felt (and still feel) so loved and special! It will make my day tomorrow afternoon during Open House! :D Thanks, D & J!
