i like this as a first day gift for my kids. Reminder that it's ok to make mistakes. I think I will add a note before wrapping "It's OK to make mistakes, as long as you make the effort to correct them."
Cute Idea for first week. Students fill out questions about themselves, attach picture and name in cute colorful font, and put into classbook. Then spend sometime reading each day toget to know eachother. From doodlebug teaching.
