I bought the SU stamp set 'All God's Children' when I was teaching first grade at a Catholic school. I used one of the stamps to make welcome cards for kids last year, and another with a baby Jesus to make a few last minute Christmas cards this year. Other than that they were untouched! At the end of last year I left the school, for a variety of reasons, but mostly because my dream job opened up and miraculously I landed it! I now teach first grade at my elementary school, where I took over for my first grade teacher. Big shoes to fill, but I think I'm hanging in there!
Last year when I left my small, closeknit school community I promised my students that I would write if they wrote me. Partly because I would miss them, partly because I still remember when my 4th grade teacher sent me a post card, but I also love mail! Over the summer a few wrote, and I wrote back but it died off. However, I had twins, a boy and a girl, who were also leaving the school and they've been faithful writers. So once our Christmas cards came and went I knew I needed a special card to remind them I was thinking of them. I remember this being the point in the year when they were taking off as readers, and wondered what they were learning about now.
I hope they'll enjoy receiving them as much as I enjoyed creating them!
