Easy First Day Of School Gift For Teachers To Give To Parents
If you’re a teacher, it seems like summer is over before you know it and soon it’s Labor Day Weekend and you find yourself trying to create that perfect First Day Of School gift to welcome your parents to your classroom.
As someone who is both a teacher and a parent, the first day of school is one of the best days there is, but also the hardest. Brand new smiling faces, watching your child grow from year to year and become the adult they were meant to be but at the same time there are tears-tears of joy and tears of sadness. And if you’re an educator too, I too know what that last minute crunch is like as the clock ticks down and you’re in search of that perfect First Day Of School Gift to show your parents that they are leaving their children in very capable hands. Well luckily, I have just the thing for you and it’s guaranteed to let the parents know just how much you care. Not only is it quick and easy to make, you can do it with things you already have at home and the best part, it shows them that the year is already off to a great start.
What You’ll Need:
- 1 “Back-To-School Poem” -I print mine on decorated computer paper
- 1 ziplock bag
- 1 Teabag
- 1 tissue
- 1 Cotton Ball
Yes it’s just that easy! Each year as I greet my new group of students at the door, as the parents are leaving I hand them the bag. Inside the bag they find a tea bag, a cotton ball, a tissue and this note and I ask them not to open it until they get home. During the day I also send each parent a picture of their student having a great time as they discover the joy that is learning.
