Communication is "treasured"

More on planning for next year....

Last year, my friend and I came up with a brilliant plan to make business cards for our "parents," or whoever our kids live with...

Not only did we make the business cards, but we put them on MAGNETS! 

Like these - 

Now, a lot of people might have those stainless steel refrigerators, but they have sides, right?? Or maybe there's a filing cabinet in the house?? Or maybe they have a dry erase calendar in their house??

These are the ones I came up with....
Remember, my theme is pirate next year, and the tiger is because we're the Turner Tigers...

I think I'm leaning towards B, what do you think?

I don't know how I could share this with you...I can't save it as PDF with editable fields (I don't have that super cool Adobe Pro) and I can't share the template with the clip art on it...AND I did it in Publisher and some people don't have publisher, so I don't know how...I guess if you have Publisher, give me your email and I can send you a template with out clipart.

BUT, you at least have the idea, right?

I had mine made on Vista print and put it in all my students beginning of the year folder last year. Now that I know how to make everything on power point, I can make my own!! haven't thought about that until I say your post! Great idea!

This is exactly what I want to give out at my Meet the Teacher in August!! I've used Vistaprint before to make magnets similar to these. They usually run a special where all you have to pay is the shipping cost (around $3) for 25 magnets. Love this idea! :)
