The Perfect Gift
I love giving just the perfect gift. You know the one… the person slowly opens it up, and you can see the corners of their mouth move from curious to thrilled. The secret to gift giving? It doesn’t have to be big, fancy, expensive, or shiny. The gift just has to be something the person likes. Bonus if it is unexpected! With this, you can imagine I have been thinking about what to start collecting to send as little thank you gifts throughout the year for our Kindergarten teacher.. I felt weird asking at the open house – so I didn’t. The packet sent home had a handful of items the teacher could use extras of in the classroom. Basic things such as expo markers, and disinfectant wipes. However I wanted more. I have put together a list of popular teacher supplies, classroom picture books, and more. (I’ll be sure to post it on FB when I do!) When my daughter came home on the first day of school with a “get to know you” sheet, it clicked! I’ll send a Get to Know you sheet back to the teacher to fill out for us! In that instant, the Teacher’s Favorite Things free printable was born!
I quick created this printable, had my daughter write in her teacher’s name, and sign her name, and then popped it in the folder that goes between school and home. I’m totally excited to see the answers to start planning! WOOOO!
