I’ve been working with a long term substitute for the past five weeks and this Friday is her last day – muy triste! She has been amazing, so to let her know how much we appreciated her, my students and I made her a thank-you card with a recycled file folder and sticky notes (I think I had Ladybug’s sticky notes post in my mind). Instead of having students one by one sign a card, they were all able to write her a message at the same time with the sticky notes, and then I randomly arranged them on the file folder.
I folded the side ends of the file folder towards the middle crease like you do when you make a lapbook.
I holepunched and added ribbon (recycled :)).
I let students pick their sticky note (I have very trustworthy kids!).
I randomly took a picture of this sticky note and didn’t realize how cute the message was until now. “I hope you buzz back soon.” And I hope Mrs. Price does “buzz” back soon! Even though she is an older woman, she has double my energy!
