Gifts from My Students

I have an amazing group of first graders and families that I am so thankful for. As we concluded our Polar Express party on December 22nd, just before heading off for our winter holiday break, they presented me with $250 worth of Amazon.com gift cards and cash so I could purchase items from my classroom WISH LIST. Well, I was completely overwhelmed - but boy did I have fun shopping! Just look at all the new goodies I purchased! I can't wait to share these with my Firsties!
