I use this printable to create "welcome bags" for my students at the beginning of the year. I include in each little bag the items listed, and sign my name under the heart. The bags are a great way to welcome students to your classroom. In this download I have included a version for 1st through 5th grade.
The bag states:
Adventure, knowledge and excitement await you here. It’s time! It’s time! For your first grade year!!! A few essentials to get you through, to help and assist your start a new!
(A List of items with cute descriptions)
The knowledge here is free, but you MUST bring your own container.
