Teacher Appreciation !!!

Hi Stampers!!  I have been busy putting together two baskets for my daughters first grade teachers.  It is a Teacher Survival Kit full of lots of goodies. 

Teacher Survival Kit

Animal cookies for when your classroom seems like a zoo.
Band-Aids for when things get a little rough.
Chewing Gum to help you stick to it.
Crayons to color your day bright and cheerful.
Candle for when you are up late grading papers.
Eraser to remind you everyone makes mistakes.
Lifesavers for when you've had one of those days.
Marbles to replace the ones you've lost.
Mounds Bar for the mounds of confidence you give your students.
Paperclips to hold it all together.
Pencil to "write your wrongs."
Shiny penny to remind you that each will shine in his or her own special way.
Starburst to give a "burst" of energy when you need it.
Tissues to wipe away the tears...yours and theirs.
Toothpick to help "pick" out the good qualities in others and yourself.
And a prayer for you to say at the start of each day.

May I always strengthen their voices,
Bodies and minds,
To express their feelings and
Control them sometimes,
To explore what's near
And venture afar,
But most important to love
Who they are.

Hope they like it!!

Thanks for stopping by.  Leave me a note and let me know what you think :)



  1. THAT. IS. AWESOME. I love this idea! Thank you for sharing.

  2. This is adorable! I'm thinking of doing something for the group that I work with to survive class placements during their next workshop day. This might be just the thing...

  3. AWESOME idea! I am sure they are going to LOVE it! Thanks for sharing.

  4. I dropped them off this morning in the school office b/c they were to big for Maya to take with her on the bus. Can't wait to hear what they thought of them.
