This is a short and sweet letter you can leave on your students desks on the first day of school. I accompany a mint (the soft peppermints that melt in your mouth so they don't choke and they are free from many things that children are allergic to) with the poem. You can edit parts of the letter to add in details that will happen in your classroom throughout the year.
There are two versions of this letter. The first page is meant to be sent from one teacher. The second page has been changed so it can be sent from more than one teacher, for example if you work in a co-teaching classroom.
