Teacher's 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. Lifesaversfor when you've had one of those days. Marbles to replace the ones you've lost. A Mounds Bar for the mounds of confidence you give your students.
Give these out at our first parent-teacher conference of the school year. Poem reads: "An apple for the teacher is really nothing new, except when you remember parents are teachers too." Parents just love them!
