I decided to make the parents a gift for Parent Night. I saw this pin and knew I had to make one for first grade.
I had the students sign their name in a pink, green or black marker underneath their hand prints.
The parents were excited to get them tonight. I told them that once the box is full, they have to start throwing some of the papers away and only keep some of the work. Some parents actually keep every. single. paper. and never EVER throw them away. I don't know if they'll go for it or not - there was a lot of nervous laughter when I told the parents that. Maybe one day you'll see this box on the episode of Hoarders!
TPT is finally working for me, so if you are interested in a free phonic games for your students, check it out here.
