Meet the Teacher Gift Idea

Treat for students at Back to School Night
Meet the Teacher is one of the most important events of the entire year. Students are on pins and needles waiting to meet their new teacher. I know I've always been just as excited to meet my new group of kiddos as well. I always like to give students a little treat when I meet them. I know some schools don't allow candy, but POP ROCKS are awesome, and I'm a grown up!
What a fun Back to School treat for students from the teacher!
It's important to hug each and every single one of my students and tell them how happy I am to have them in my class. With that being said, I think they will appreciate the note and candy too!
Where to buy Pop Rocks!?! I actually looked at Walgreens, Dollar Tree, and 7-11 before the lightbulb went off in my head, and I ordered them on Amazon. They arrived the next day. Thank goodness for Amazon Prime! Ha! If you have a CostCo or Sam's card, I bet they would be super cheap there! I've seen them in bulk packs at Target and WalMart as well. The Dollar Tree lady told me that they always sell out around the 4th of July. :)
I've added this EDITABLE Pop Rocks gift tag to my Meet the Teacher Essentials on TpT. You can download the gift tag and a plethora of important forms to handout to parents, as well as activities to keep students engaged while their parents fill out paperwork.

  1. Any ideas on parent gift for first day?

  2. Lynne- I'm glad you asked. I think anything with the child's picture is a good idea and will be treasured by parents. :) I've got a blog post coming this week so stay tuned! :)
