One of the sayings I use in my classroom is reserved for VERY special accomplishments. I only utter it once in a while, when a kid really deserves it. For example, one little chickie of mine brought in a notebook of writing that she had been keeping at home all year. That in and of itself is amazing, but as I looked through it I realized that it was actually filled with writings that we did in class that she went home and did AGAIN on her own! She wrote second and third drafts of things that we started in class or just did as a snapshot assignment. So she deserved a great big "You rocked my socks off!" from me for that!
So, I thought as a nice way to send off my kids, I'd let them in a little secret - that really, they all rocked my socks off in some way or another, even if I never said it directly to them. So here's a glimpse of this year's end of the year gift:
If you're lucky you'll find some cute kid's socks at Dollar Tree. Otherwise, look in the clearance section of Target or Walmart. Even plain white socks would be cute with the tag - and they'd still get the message. Click on the pic below to get the sheet of tags from GoogleDocs. I made them in a few different colors too. Enjoy!
