The Little-Big Things

Happy almost Friday!! This week was our first full week, and so far we have really started getting into routine. It's my 13th year teaching and every year I forget how hard it is in the beginning of the year to get the routines so perfect - like I had them at the end of the year last year. ha!

Anyway, tonight's post, I was thinking I would share some ideas I have for "the little things." I have two birthday right when school starts. Luckily, one of my "to-do" list items is to write out all their birthday postcards for the year. I put the date on the bottom of the card to remind me when to mail out, and hopefully I get them out in time. 

Yes, I really do mail them out. If you know me, you know that I just love birthdays! Birthdays are such an important day in someone's life, so I love making kids feel special on their birthday.  The parents always comment on the postcards and the kids are always so excited to get mail! A lot of the times, they bring in the postcard to school to show me. And I just love their excitement over it.

Another thing I do is print up "business cards," I don't actually have business cards printed up from Vista Print or anything because we move rooms a lot and you never know what will happen next year, so I don't want to have an abundance of business cards I can't use. ha! So I just made these up in powerpoint and change them each year when I need to change it. Print up about 25 (we only have 18-20 kids, but for those coming throughout the year), add a magnet to the back of them and done! Business cards for the parents and fridge.

And another thing I love to do is print up my pictures to hang on my wall by the door. The kids love looking at them every time we are in line. And whenever parents come in, they love to see your life. I print up new ones every summer and winter break and add to the mix. 

What do you do that are "the little things?" I would love to know - maybe I need to add more to my list of things to do!

I love your idea for the magnetic business cards for parents. I like that you can edit them as well with your current info. Your personalized bday cards are such a "little thing" that really does go a long way with kiddos {and parents!}. Glad your first week went well.
