Back to School Blog Hop: Day 2

Welcome to the Back to School Blog Hop: Day 2.

It's that time of year again when the kiddos are gathering up their backpacks, sharpening their pencils, polishing their apples and are headed back to school. What a better way to celebrate than with a BLOG HOP! the way you will find such wonderful projects such as gifts for teachers, classroom ideas, scrapbook layouts, cards, and more.
Please be sure to visit every blog and leave a comment to be eligible for the GRAND PRIZE your choice of 5 Digi Stamps from Jen's Digi Stamps. You will love these cute stamps that are perfect for every occasion and creation.
If you came here from Lisa's blog then you are in the right place. If you didn't and you just stopped by that's okay go back to the beginning at Blessed On The Bright Side and Hop with us. You will find lots of talented designing friends on this hop and you don't want to miss a single one!!

Here is the Blog List:

This week was our first week to the new school year in our district. I am a Teacher's Assistant in both AM & PM Kinder Class. We have about 33 students in each class. Yes, 33! But, no matter how many students we get, we make it a great learning experience for them. I have to make sure I memorize all 66 student's name which is sometimes tough (LOL) when you have a set of twins in your class or students that have the same name. But I enjoy every minute of my job. I am also excited because I get to Substitute Teach this year which should be a great experience for when I get my own classroom someday. So with that, I felt this was the perfect Hop for me to participate in. I am also thankful to Shawnee for inviting me to participate with her on this hop and other wonderful ladies who I had the pleasure of working with in another previous hops.

For this Back to School Blog Hop, I wanted to create something that I wanted to give to the two Kinder Teachers I am working with and to another Kinder Teacher that I've worked with last year but I still supervise her kinders during Recess time. I wanted to give them a special Treat Box to say " Great First Week Back to School." I wanted to include a special Gift Card inside to help them get that energy every morning.

Teacher Treat Box:
3 Favor Boxes
Hello Kitty  Cartridge: Books Size 2.5
DCWV Paper Fall Stack: Letters
Polka Dot Ribbon
School Embellishment Stickers

First Step: Cut 6 Letter Papers at 3 x3, and 2 x 3.
 Second Step: Cut Book Image from Hello Kitty Cartridge at Size 2.5.
 Third Step: Glue Ribbon around the top of the box.
 Final Step: Add Green Shredded Grass and add Treats of your choice.

 Ta Da: Teacher's Favor Box: It will include a Gift Card to Starbucks and a box of Crayola Crayons.
