Freebie: Poetry Anthology Last Day Poem for Students

End of the year gift for my kiddies! Going to type up the poem in a cute DJ Inkers font on an Avery 2x4 label (I love labels). Having my room mom take a pic of me with each kid, print picture in black and white with a white border (hopefully this can be done), and stick the poem label on the back. Cute, easy, and cost effective!
