Do you give your students a welcome back to school gift? I decided to this year and I think it was a hit!
Open house is always so awkward – the students are shy and don’t really want to talk to anyone but their parents. This year I was able to show the kiddos around the room a little, stopping by the ever so popular turtle, and ending at my guided reading table where I had a surprise waiting for everyone!
I’ve used these little fellas during guided reading in the past and they are so much fun! I was in Target the other day…shocker, right?...and found these little guys again. They were in the party section, just begging to be picked up. So, I did.
I whipped up a little phrase to put with the eye finger puppet when I got home. Super cheesy, but I do teach first grade. Cheese is definitely called for. All the time.
(Y'all - please excuse my fingernails. It's back to school time - you know how it is. Ha!)
Once I printed and cut the cards out, I just hot glued the eyeballs onto the card and was ready to go!
I hope you can use this free card with your finger puppets!
I’d love to see your pictures on Instagram – tag me at @mirandalarayne!
