This year I will be a mentor to a first year first grade teacher. She has worked in the school as a substitute last semester and was a great one and she taught in the middle school for quite some time (like as a long term sub). So, she has great experience. I'm excited to officially a mentor and a little nervous too! I wanted to get her a little gift for the first week of school so here is what I got: mini clipboard, pens, binder clips, markers, post-its, notepads, and a tumbler cup.
Most of that was only $0.88 at Wal-Mart. I put it all in this cute bag (also $0.88)!
I had heard she was doing her room in a frog theme, so when I saw this little frog at a thrift store for only $0.35, I thought it'd a cute addition to her gift! So tell me...do you think these gifts are okay for a first week gift?
I also picked up a few books at a thrift store. Most were only $0.45. I am trying to get more books that would interest boys so I thought the baseball book, pirate book, and Spiderman would be a good addition to my library.
For $0.50 I got this Tennessee Volunteers cheerleader bear to put in my classroom! It doesn't match my blue/green theme, but it'll still be cute.
