First of all, WOW! I’m not sure where all of these followers came from, but when I saw that I had grown I was humbled and moved to tears. I am so grateful! Like I have said, if I can just share 1 thing that saves someone else time, mission accomplished!!
I just returned from a wonderful vacation with my awesome husband! 5 days on the river and then a wedding filled with many friends. We had a blast! But now, back to work. I must admit, my mind didn’t really stop going the whole time.
I was going through my old files on my hard drive and came across this little magnet. It’s one of our favorite things to do on the first day. I usually just use a clothes pin, add a piece of magnet to the back, and hot glue a circle on the other side. I then let the kids decorate the circle on their first day back using old crayons and old markers. (This then leads a lesson on taking care of our supplies. When they show that they can take care of them, then I dump the new ones in the table bins. It’s like Christmas!)
At the end of the day I attach this cute little poem to the clothes pin and send it home to be on their refrigerator all year.
Print it on colored paper, or let the kiddos color it. Enjoy it HERE
Please note: (I am not the original creator of this poem. I searched and searched but did not find him/her. I would love to credit the right person, though! If you know, please share!)
