Teacher Survival Kit - Animal cookies for when your classroom seems like a zoo. Band aids for when things get a little rough. Chewing gum to help you stick to it. Crayons to color your day bright and cheerful. A candle for when you are up late grading papers. Erasers to remind you everyone makes mistakes. Lifesavers for when you've had one of those days. Marbles to replace the ones you've lost. A mound bar for the mounds of confidence you give your students.
I think I would cry if a student gave me this. Green is for the inspiration you give me each day. Blue is for your patience in showing me the way. Orange is for your warmth and caring style. Yellow is for the way you always make me smile. Red is for my life that you have touched this year. You place knowledge in my hands, that melt into my heart and live forever! Youre a Magnificent Marvelous Teacher! Thank you for being my M!
You hot glue crayons around a half pint size canning jar. Tie on a ribbon and spray paint the lid black to represent a chalkboard. Glue on a school themed decoration for the top and fill with something sweet. (M's, Skittles, Hershey's Kisses, granola, jelly beans or whatever you like).
