Concepts Taught: To welcome new and old teachers back to the new school year :)

I made one of these for all of the teachers at my school
last year. I put small portions of each item in a zip-
lock bag. I typed the explanations in Print Shop and made
each line a different color. I also added a piece of
string for when they reached the end of their rope - to tie
on to it.

My family enjoyed the idea so much as I put the sacks together,
they made me one for my birthday using bigger objects and
put all the stuff in a wicker basket. I really loved it!

Everyone likes to be appreciated, and this is just one small
way for everyone to receive some little something. :)
