Mrs O Knows


Many versions of this poem have been floating around the teaching world for years so I am not sure anyone knows the original author but I've taken one a teacher gave me a few years back and adapted it. I have not placed a specific grade on this item so that it can be used for any level. If you used the poem as I've written it, you would need a bag filled with the following:

white lunch bags
fifth grade specific pencils
Welcome bracelet (Really Good Stuff)
Sharpener or sticker - 2 versions
Lifesavers, Smarties, Laffy Taffy, Starbursts

Place these bags on each student's desk on the first day or for back to school night and watch them smile as they read it and dip their hands in for their favorite items!

There are three designs (two in color, one in b&w), and two variations (one with sticker and one with sharpener). You will notice that there are two pages of the same poem. This is so that you can print two pages to one page since a whole page would be too large. Plus, it will save you a little ink and paper!
