If you have a beach theme in your classroom, you will LOVE this starfish poem and gift to welcome your new students. The poem can be printed, framed, and placed on your desk as a reminder that you make a difference each day! You may even want to give the poem to a special teacher in your life. There are two options to welcome your new "stars" to your classroom: a bookmark and a card. For both options, just print and laminate. I highly suggest printing on glossy photo paper. To make these welcome gifts even more special, I also suggest buying a class set of real starfish at your local craft store and adorn each gift with a pretty ribbon attached with a starfish.
