I don't know if I was the only teacher who experienced this, but my class would break out into singing the Lego movie chorus spontaneously on Friday afternoons in the computer lab starting in February when the movie premiered in theaters. "Everything is Awesome" became our unofficial class song because as soon as somebody started with Everything... the whole class would be harmonizing along before it ended! I actually quite enjoyed it because I love including songs and music throughout the day, plus I thought it had a good message for kids (side by side ... working together).
There in lies the inspiration for my new and improved Student Welcome Gifts looking quite AWESOME in my opinion. I've been doing these goldfish bags for the past 3 years and was ready for a change.
Her tutorial is great at explaining how to load the bags into the printer to avoid the most mishaps. Initially, I forgot to flip the image upside down so that was fail #1. Next, I printed one at a time and was having great success and no jamming. So, I decided to load more than one at a time and request multiple copies be printed. Then, the printer began to jam and misfeed - so back to one at a time to keep my printer happy. In the end only 5 bags were lost to the recycling bin.
see original post here), the best fruit snack ever because it's made by Black Forest (who knows gummy better than them?), and a groovy 'stache detailed further below. I say I'd be one ecstatic kid going back to school if I knew these gifts were waiting for me!

Well, in addition to the obsession with "Everything is AWESOME" our second obsession was with the humorous little mustache. Take a look at the new "Congrats, You're an Official 4th grader" proclamations complete with stache swag.
Made-It #4: Labeled Lunch Tub
I inherited a pretty beat-up blue lunch tub from the former teacher who's room I was given, and never quite got around to relabelling it. So all last year my lunch tub had the old teacher's last name. Found these letters while in the Duct tape aisle at Hobby Lobby and I think they're a fabulously new product, perfect for labeling my new white lunch tub.
Made-It #5: Compliment Can
Earlier this summer I had pinned Funky in Fourth's compliment card freebies. I knew I had wanted to do some sort of class bucket-filling container, and this was perfect for naming my clearance find. Picked up this cute canister for just $3 - 80% off from Hobby Lobby!!
