I made them an activity book.
It is so not a coloring book. They kinda complete the whole picture by drawing on their thoughts and ideas. And yes, they can color afterwards.
I had them ringbound (in red, of course).
I got these tags from Living Locurto .
Now, for my teacher friends, I got inspired by Skip to My Lou. She loves giving gifts to her kids' teachers.
Then I cut them up in strips and stuck them on the goods using double-sided tape. I then sealed each strip with a sticker. I have a bunch of reward stickers at work which I use on my students.
Here are the rest:
I then arranged everything in a plastic food tub.
And then printed labels for the cover.
As of this writing, I have been receiving text messages and emails from my teacher friends, thanking me for their gifts. I am soooo glad they love it as much as I am glad from making it for them.
