goodbye gift (for students)

Usually, as part of our goodbye gift to the students, my team and I write acrostic poems for each child using the letters in their name. They love hearing the words we come up with to describe them! This year, I made these little goodbye gifts for my students to go along with their poems. I plan on giving these out on the last day of school. image blowmeaway And, I plan on using the tags you see below to hang around Ziploc baggies full of Starbursts. I will personalize each one by writing a little message on the back of the tag. image Very easy, simple, and sweet! You can download both of these goodbye gifts by clicking on either of the templates or by clicking here. Do you all give out a special gift to your students on the last day of school?
