My oldest is in first grade this year. And becoming more fluent at reading and writing by the day. For a teacher gift this Christmas we decided to do a “words of encouragement” gift for the teacher and the assistant (I did something similar for my mom for a birthday gift last year and she loved it). I thought I’d share the idea here for those of you who do valentine notes for your teachers. We folded and tucked these into pencil boxes with glue sticks, erasers, and a few other supplies.
The light was “eh” in the kitchen that morning so forgive the crappy images. And the crumbs. Please forgive those crumbs. I thought about cropping them out but it dawned on me that I don’t see near enough crumbs and dirt on blogs these days.
I wish I hadn’t waited until the very. last. minute. to do this little project. These questions were definitely pre-coffee.
Come to think of it, I’m still drawing a blank on better fill-in-the-blanks. If you have suggestions, please share! Maybe I can put together a little printable for you to download and use.
