Smarty Pants - The newest and coolest addition to our class. My sweet friend, Robyn, helped me design the cute Smarty Pants and I am super pumped about them!!!! The pants are sewn shut and have Smarties candy inside them. When one of my firsties says or does something smart or has an"outside the box" idea I will say, "You're such a smarty pants" and they will go get 1 Smarties candy out of the pants. Totally CHEESY, right?! I know, but whatever works!
