    This year's student bookmarks!

    Each is made--as much as possible--with the student's favorite sport/animal/season/hobby. At least that gives me enough to go on to fit some of their favs into each. There are many lacrosse players this year, but I have yet to find cute lacrosse fabric. I was thrilled to find some fish and wolves on some leftover pillowcase material.
    Kids are done the 21st of June, so I'll give them away the last week. I think I'll get each a little bag with goodies bubbles, candy, pencil) and this will be included.

    The photos are group 1--then the backs, group 2, then backs, group 3, then backs.





    (Gosh! I had to sign back in twice while preparing this post. What is up with that?)

    Sew nice of you to think of the kids each year. I'm sure they will remember you for years to come.

    Your bookmarks are super! I like how you personalized them to each student with fabrics to suit them. Your little gromnets(sp) are neat, do the apply well to fabric?

    That says alot about you as a person and as a teacher that you took the time, money, and effort to do this. The kids were blessed to have you. That being said, the bookmarks LOOK great, too!!

    Looks like this is a tradition that you'll have to continue as long as you teach at that school.

    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Wonderful idea, and so individually beautiful! I'm curious, what grade are the kids? The thing about a bookmark, is that it makes you want to read a book to use it. How clever to give a gift that will keep on giving to the kids.

    5th! We've had 24 per class for a few years now. Too many to be as effective as we want to be. I asked my kids how many loved reading more now than in Sept and all but three raised their hand. (We did the math--87.5%) Two didn't because they said they loved reading in Sept and still do--it couldn't have increase lol and the other joined us in January and she says she doesn't like to read, but I told her I didn't get the full time with her. ;-)

    I've been giving these for 3-4 years now, but usually in December with two new books each. I had too much going on to do that this year, but they still got the books. This is better timing. Moms of former students say their kids use these years after finishing 5th grade. :-)

    I taught fifth grade for many years. I'm now retired but I have 10 grandkids with a great grandchild on the way. Two of my granddaughters are going into teaching. One already has her masters and is teaching Autistic children. The other one is specializing in Early Childhood Ed. and Special Ed. I like to make things for the younger grandkids, and also for them to give to their classmates on special occasions. Last Valentine's Day, I made personalized embroidered Valentines for my youngest GD's classmates and her teachers. Would you be willing to tell us how you made these? They are great! I certainly agree that encouraging children to read is very important. These would also be great for the GDs to give to their classes.
