The End is Near

Many teachers like to give their children something at the end of the year. A few years ago my son got the cutest gift from his kindergarten teacher. I have saved it all these years(the scroll)--he starts middle school next year. I contacted his teacher and asked if I could share it with everyone and she gave me her full support: Thanks Mrs. Bradbury.

She made up a little "End of Kindergarten Reminder Kit." First she wrote a little letter to all the children on half a sheet of paper, rolled the paper like a scroll, and added it in the gift.

The letter reads like this:

End of Kindergarten Reminder Kit

Here is something to remind you of Kindergarten

Seeds-
to remind you how much you have grown

A lollipop-
to remind you how sweet you are

A bookmark-
to remind you to always enjoy books

Money-
to remind you how much you are worth

All in a cup full of love and sealed with a kiss!

Love,

The teacher took a cup--a plastic Solo cup, about 9oz. She put a packet of seeds, a lollipop, a bookmark, a penny, a Hershey Kiss, and the scroll in the cup. Then she placed the cup inside a little plastic gift bag and tied it with ribbon. It was so adorable. I loved it.

I hope you can visualize this as I do not have a specific picture of it. Take care.

What a sweet and thoughtful gift... And something for the kids to think about. I'll have to remember this when/if I go back to teaching. Thanks for sharing it with us.

My daughter's kinder teacher gave them a box of books (and my daughter is so thrilled and proud of them. It was a very generous gift! I so hope she somehow earned these and didn't spend her own money on them.)

I'm loving your blog over here!
