End of Year is Here!

Wow - this has been a year - that is all I can say! Can't wait until Friday! (But I have some little ones that I will sooooo miss!)

I am making Memory Books - Using several different ones and taking bits of pieces of each to make my class their awesome memory book! I have the students fill out the pages, hole punch them and put them in the brads of a folder. I develop pictures I have taken during the year and glue them to notebook paper and label each picture and put behind these pages.

I am using:

This was the first Memory Book unit I bought!
I use her This is me pages!

(as of Sunday, May 27 - it is on sale for $2.50!)

There are so many pages I love about this unit!
It so rocks!

Love the School Lunch Tray and Fun Fact Page!

I make some cute labels to put on the front of the folders and then send them home the last day of school!

Great Memories for some great kids! The End of the Year is here... Not sure if I want to cry or cheer??? I hope my class will miss me as much as I will miss them!

Now off to pack my classroom for next year's new adventure!

Inexpensive End of Year Teacher Gifts!

Thursday I made my son's teacher her end of the year gift - I was so excited about it that I went ahead and had my son give it to her and I forgot to take a picture - Cracker Jacks! I was so mad at myself - I wanted to rush to her room and ask for it back so I could take a picture, but was afraid she might think I was weird and decided against it!

Well, I got the idea from Teacher Tipster on his Facebook page - (here). I made some labels using Graphics From the Pond Rainbow Days Paper Border. I made them in Word and printed them on Avery Labels 5163 (Shipping Labels). I put M&M's in a cute jar I bought for $2.95 at Wally World. Put the cute poem label on one side and the jar and the You are an M&M Teacher! label on the other side of the jar and a cute ribbon around the lid and Voila! A cute end of the year Teacher Gift! 

My little one loves his teacher so much and is asking to give her another present, so I may make a cute cup for her (check it out here).

If you would like the labels you can download the labels from my TpT store!

What do you do for your child's teacher? :)
Leave me some ideas! or Just leave me some love! :)
(Been needing it lately... But that post is for another day!)

Enjoy! :)
