Back to School

It is that time of year again... a time for fresh starts, new students and of course shiny school supplies. I can't believe I am actually going to admit this, but I am a little sad that I didn't get to do a "back to school" Wal-mart run. I LOVE walking down the aisles and soaking up all the bright colors that Crayola dangles in front of me.

Anyway, there are no Wal-Marts here in KL, but it is still a very exciting time for me nonetheless. Instead of picking up brand new boxes of Crayola crayons for my new students, this year I did a little research. I am sad to say that I can't remember where I read this... maybe Pinterest?! I found the idea to use the saying, "You are o'FISH'ally a _____." The best part is that you can fill in the blank with whatever you want.  It could even be a cute little something for your child to take to his or her teacher the first day.

I have been going crazy with these awesome FREE polkdot borders I found here. (I'll give you a sneak peak of my classroom later this week) She is so generous to create various borders in all different colors. If you are a teacher or just crafty, download them. They are great to have on hand for making little tags.

Here are how mine turned out...

~Happy New (school) Year!~
