I was so tickled when I opened the mail yesterday and I had a package for me. Yes, I get lots of packages with books, but this one had CHOCOLATE!
In August, Sarah over at the Reading Zone organized a Teacher/Kidlitosphere swap. Nineteen of us took the challenge to create a package filled with goodies ($20, sans postage) using the letters for S-C-H-O-O-L . Well, my partner was Jenny, who blogs at Elementary My Dear, Or Far From It.
We have lots in common: she teaches first grade, I have a first grader; I used to live in Northern Virginia, her in-laws live here in Charlottesville. We have one more thing in common, but I can’t tell you because she hasn’t opened her package!
Something Sweet and Yummy — Reese’s cups (chocolate comes first)
Coffee Mug (it’s an anti-stress mug, see close-up below)
Have some Yummy Cookies — heart-shaped cookie cutters
Organizational Goodies — Door-hanger organizers (in UVA colors, no less!) and some really cool markers
On a Break — Relax and Read! One for the Money by Janet Evanovich
Lovely Scent — a Crystal potpourri
Thanks, Sarah! This was a lot of fun!
