Are you looking for a great way to welcome your class back to school? Here is a cute gift idea to give to your students when the year starts to help bond with your class and create a class community or family, even when you can't be together!

There are several versions of this gift, including in-person classrooms and distance learning!

This student gift combines two of my FAVORITE things: Bracelets and positive affirmations! Your purchase will include an original poem that I have written about starting the year together with distance learning! This poem is meant to be sent home with bracelets to go along with the poem. The poem includes space for you to write positive affirmations for your students to think about while wearing their bracelets! (Your purchase does NOT include bracelets! You will need to purchase those separately, or you can even make your own! Check the the links I have included below for some of my recommended bracelets on Amazon!).

Many teachers love to give Back to School gifts to their students, and this is the perfect one to give before the year begins or on the first day of school! It is easy to add to any materials that you are sending home, or you can even mail it to student homes!

While the poem itself is NOT editable, you CAN edit the following:

  • The welcome message at the top (You can change the grade or add your own welcome!)
  • The affirmations (Change the font, size, or number of affirmations!)
  • The bracelet images (You can choose not to have bracelet images OR change the color, size, or number of bracelets! I have even included simple bracelet clipart for you to change the colors!)
  • The closing ("Love, Your Name" can be changed to anything you want!)

There are several different poems included:

  • A poem for Distance Learning AND a poem for starting in the classroom this year or any year!
  • There is a poem for for sending home several bracelets!
  • There is a poem for sending home just one bracelet!
  • There are also poems for sending home bracelets with beads or charms! (The idea remains the same: you can include affirmations for each bead or charm!)
  • There is also a small version of each poem! (4 poems to a page so you can save ink!)

Note: Your download will include an editable PowerPoint file, which can only be opened in PowerPoint. Please make sure you have it installed on your computer prior to purchasing!
