This is a terrific resource of 85 pages that has 15 different themes/backgrounds for postcards to send home or notes to leave on desks.
Each design includes:
• Editable welcome postcard/note for the start of the year
• Positive Sayings, "Way to Go!" "You Did It!" "Fantastic" "Great Job!"
• "You Matter to Our Class!" - something I think is important for all students to know and feel
• "Perfect Attendance"
• "Thank You" - can be used for students, parents or teachers
With each design you can pair a design on the back by printing it back to back. You can pick from:
• Postcard templates
• Blank Notes
• "A Note from your teacher"
• "A note from" (editable for you to enter your name and create your own stationery.
I just love that I won't have to spend money each year to buy a new set of postcards and they can match all year long with different messages.
Helpful Hint: Print several sets of address labels at the start of the year and preprint, label, and stamp the postcards. This will encourage you to send notes home throughout the year because they'll be prepped and ready!
