Create a warm atmosphere on the first day of school by leaving a small welcome pack on the desk of every student in your class!
This document includes 8 variations of a positive, inspiring message explaining the symbolism of small gifts--most of which can be easily found at a dollar store.
The message is formatted to fit inside a small ziplock/craft bag measuring 4.3 inches by 4.7 inches or 11cm by 12cm, which you fill with the listed items. Photo of final product--the gift bag/welcome pack with treats and message--is included. (Gift items not included).
Use these welcome messages to:
-greet a new set of students on the first day of school every year
-offer the same welcome pack to all students or use a variety
-use two different versions in a split grade
-create different welcome packs if your teaching assignment changes and you teach the same students the next year
There are 9 pages in PDF format: the first page is a photo with explanations and the remainder are 8 versions of welcome messages to print on regular or coloured paper.
