I must say that I am very proud of our 8th grade math students. 88% passed the STAAR math on the first try. We will see in a few weeks how the other grades did.
I always try and do a little something for my math teachers for the test day. I came up with this.
I got a little bottle of hand sanitizer from Bath and Body Works. I picked out the Apple Blossoms scent.
I used my cricut and cut out an apple.
On the front of the apple I wrote, "SANITYzer". We all know we need a little bit of sanity, especially during testing time!
I glued the apple to the bottle.
At the time, Bath and Body Works was having a sale, so each bottle was $1.00. I already had the paper and the cricut, so the other cost was just a little bit of time.
I made enough for all my math teachers, plus a few extra.
I will be giving one to my son's Kindergarten teacher. These would make great gifts during Teacher Appreciation Week. By the way, Teacher Appreciation Week is the week of May 6 - May 10. As a teacher, I can safely say we love getting little gifts. Gifts don't need to cost a lot of money, so any thoughtful token is always appreciated!
