First things first, I do *not* take credit for the awesome creativeness of this poem. (That goes to someone else, who I wish I knew the name to!) I simply take credit for making it pretty.
You have four color scheme options to choose from in this little bundle, one of which is sure to fit your classroom needs! Simply fill a goodie bag with the highlighted items and staple the sheet to the front. What a way to welcome new lovelies into your room! :-)
FYI: The welcome poem reads as follows:
Welcome to my class!
I am so glad you are here.
I have made you a bag of goodies,
To help describe our year.
The eraser is to let you know
It is okay to make mistakes.
We will correct them and learn from them,
No matter what it takes.
The Smarties say, “I know you’re smart!”
And really special too.
The Lifesaver is to remind you
That I am always here for you.
The pencil represents all the learning
That we will do.
School can be pretty tough
But it is a ton of fun too!
The Laffy Taffy says we will laugh a lot,
While traveling through the year, you see.
The Starburst is to let you know
You are already a STAR to me!
