|you never.ever. see this in dallas. REAL snow.|
|just because. its texas.|
|this is when i realized i needed out of the house, and|
missed my job....i was wearing a beret and
dressing my dog up in burberry.
here they are in all their glory....
ok, this is the card that each kiddo will get...my mom and i found them at this AMAZING store, paper source at northpark. if you like scrapbooking, cards, stationary, funny/fun gifts, stamps, and/or creating in anyway shape or form...i advise you to go now.
I wrote each students name on the card with small note... 'my favorite thing about you'...here are some examples if you were wondering ....you are always sweet to others....you are a great leader....you are a wonderful artist....you are a fabulous writer....i think you get the point. BUT each student has a different note.
then.... these are the envelopes i stamped and wrote their name on the outside in pink (i'm obsessed with stamps by the way).
this is the final project together....they don't look like much...but i'm pretty excited about them....and hey, they are better than the 'hello kitty' ones i would have bought from target, right??
i am also going to make them bags with their name on it...to play the part of the 'valentine mailbox', so they can deliver cards during the class party....also, we are very lucky in second grade with parent support this year, and they will have a present for each child to go home with....but since i am an excited 1st year teacher i wanted to get them a little something from me....they will each get one of my 'home made' cards, a fun valentines day pencil, and of course the ever popular conversation hearts.
so all in all that is what one of my snow nights consisted of....also finding like 30 (not an exaggeration) new centers, activities, worksheets, etc... for the kiddos to enjoy when we finally get back to school. yes thats right, sophie said FINALLY...working was never 'my thing'...but we won't get into that now...just know.... i'm obsessed with it now, so good thing i love my job!
that's all i have for you today, hope you enjoyed....i know i enjoyed history in the making during my 4 dallas snow days this week....stay warm.
|i ventured out today for lunch with one of my good|
girlfriends....this was out the window of where we
were lunching. my favorite flowers.
