'Tis the Season for Giving

December is a time for us to give back to those we appreciate.  I love giving gifts!  A few people asked about my gifts so I figured I would put all of it in a blog post.  Better late than never, right?

School Secret Santa
For our Secret Santa we did 4 days of gift giving.  Monday-Wednesday are small gifts then Thursday during staff breakfast we revealed ourself to our Secret Santa with a larger gift ($10-$20)
I bought the socks at Target.
                                                                       Staff Gifts
A small token of my appreciation for the principal, secretaries, literacy specialist, K-2 intervention specialist, and guidance counselor.  I am so grateful for their support.
Before printing the label, I adjusted the size so it would fit the Reese's Pieces box.
                                                                       Book Buddies Gift
My class has a 5th grade buddy they read with every other Friday.  The students always look forward to this time.  We showed our appreciation with a personalized bookmark.  Each student wrote a note on the back for their buddy.  
                                                                     Student Gifts
I made a bookmark for each student and laminated it for durability.  No more using Post Its!  I tried to coordinate each bookmark according to the student's favorite color.

I received a gift from my class and I wish I could post a picture.  It was a flower pot that says "thanks for helping us grow" and each student decorated a flower.  Such a thoughtful gift!

I also received many notes to add to my happy file.
