"Teacher's Gifts"


Friday is the last day of school. I know what you are thinking. It is June 29th. School should have been done already. But in California we go to school all year long in elementary school. There are four tracks. A,B,C, and D. The kids go to school for three months and then have a month off. Then go for three months and have a month off. You get the idea. I didn't think I would like it at first but I really do. This way we can go on mini vacations several times a year. Or when the kids are off track, mom can sleep in. LOL This is what I made for the end of the year teacher's gifts for Sarah's kindergarten teachers. I made three of them. She has two teachers, the morning and the afternoon teacher. There is also a boy in her class that has special needs and he has an aid. She is so sweet and she is there every day so I thought I would make her one as well. I found the popcorn tubs and the movie night napkins at Party America. I filled the tub with yellow paper shred and Whoppers, Mike & Ike, Licorice, Chocolate Covered Raisins, and a 3 pack of popcorn. They loved it.

Rochelle, I think it's a really cute gift, and it's thoughtful of you to give one to the aid as well! DH is a teacher and would really like the year round schedule, but we have only a few schools with it here in VA.

I love gift ensembles! And how sweet of you to remember the aid - she will so appreciate it!

I am so glad you made a basket for the aid. Our school has sevral aids in classrooms and I include them whenever I can. They tend to be moms who want a job n the same schedule as their kids. they are always there helping in the class and often help kids besides the ones they are paid to help. I just love our aids!

I've done "Movie Night" tubs before, but not with the yellow shred. LOVE that simple but oh so cute addition!
