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.
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.
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.
