Student Teacher Welcome Gifts

Hello Friends! Happy Summer! I am on couch rest because I just got my wisdom teeth out, so I am actually getting some blogging done today! 

Two years ago I was blessed with a great student teacher. Through having her, I realized that there were certain items that I wish I would have provided her before she started with me. This past year, I was given two methods teachers from my Alma Mater. Once I knew that they were coming to teach their first lessons with me, I knew that I needed to provide them with some items that would keep them organized and welcome them to our classroom!

I knew I was getting two methods ladies, so I went to Target and found these great clipboards/folders with notepads inside. They were $3.00 in the Target Dollar Spot. They are offered pretty regularly, so when I know that I might get a methods teacher or student teacher, I grab a few while I am there. 

The next thing that I did was create a welcome letter, school information sheet and class information sheet. The class information explained the students that are good helpers, students that need extra help, and a paragraph about other information that included learning and behavior issues. The school information sheet included the other first grade teachers on my team, the office staff, and the other specials teachers that they would be working with. I also included my monthly calendars that you can find here. 

I added a personalized welcome note on top with each teacher's name.

I grabbed them an awesome pen and some tulle, and wrapped it up for the girls' first day!

Such an easy and inexpensive gift that they need and they find useful! My teachers used this the entire semester. I am so thankful for them, so this is the least I can do to welcome them into my classroom!
