I've had these printed up on a post-card (ordered from Vista Print) and put the goodies in a bag...
I'm so glad you're here!
I've made you a bag of goodies to help describe our year.
The eraser is to let you know it's 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 there to remind you that I'm here for you.
The pencil represents all the learning we will do.
Third grade can be pretty tough, but it's a ton of fun, too!
The Laffy Taffy says we will laugh a lot while traveling through the year.
This classroom will be your new home-may we fill it with good cheer!
I 'borrowed' this from someone on here, but I can't remember who.
