After weeks of searching blogs online and trying to decide what to give the 5th graders for Christmas, I finally found something! I made each student a little s'more goodie bag.
Cheesy - yes! But the students loved them! :) I originally found this great idea over at Caffeinated Conclusions. All I had to do was adapt it to fit my needs. (Hers are WAYYYY cuter!)
In other news - I got some really great gifts from the kids this year! (I always tell the kiddos that the only gift I ask for is that they try their hardest and be the best student they can be!) But I walked out of the school with two gift certificates, two candles, numerous goodies, and a martini glass! Yep - a martini glass in school! lol
I was also excited because this district gave all new teachers to the district a little gift as well. I received a 20% off coupon for a local wine shop, a $5 gift certificate for a flower shop, and a free drink coupon for the local bar. Do you think they realize changing schools is hard and that I need a drink or two? ;)
My favorite gift of the year, however, actually went to the general education teacher I primarily work with. One of the students gave her edible lotion! Yes - I said edible lotion. We were both cracking up!
What did you receive from your students, district, or coworkers? I'd love to hear all about it in the comments below!
Merry Christmas to all!!
