Teacher Gift

Well, it is the end on another school year.  I sometimes feel like life is in warp speed mode!  Anyway, tomorrow is the class party at my son's school.  They are doing a breakfast.  I am looking forward to it!  I made cards for some of the staff like music, art, gym, etc.  His main teacher is getting a card and gift.  Here is how I did the cards.

These are all the supplies I used to make the cards.  I printed from Pinterest some cool printables for thank yous.  I wish I could remember the main source but I didn't keep it!  Sorry!  The cards were very simple to make.  To save on printer ink, I printed in black and white and filled in the main words.  I like how it turned out.  I cut scrapbook paper and glued cut out printable on top.  Then we wrote a little message on the back.  I had everything on hand, so these cards didn't cost a thing.

For his teacher gift I got her a gift card to Starbuck's and some chocolate.  I wrapped the gifts along with the card with yellow yarn and then bent a pipe cleaner to form an M her last name initial.

I was told third grade would be a challenging year and boy, whoever told me that was right.  Today was the awards program at school and my son received highest GPA for a boy in his class, A-B Honor roll all year and Outstanding Language Arts Achievement.  To say we are proud is an under-statement.  Sometimes I feel like we push too much and other times I feel like we don't push enough!  I am not sure if there is a happy place for both ways, but today I felt like we must be doing something right!  Zane is an awesome and amazing person and we are proud to call him son.
