Candy Notes of Appreciation

By Kriscia Cabral
Grades PreK–K, 1–2, 3–5, 6–8

    Gifts of appreciation tend to be the topic of discussion at the end of the year. For my team this year I thought I’d go with the gift of candy — and puns! This week’s post is filled with a variety of candy messages to gift to your teaching buddies (or anyone else you feel might be in need of a sweet treat).

     

    I used the Scholastic Word Workshop tool to create 20 different candy gift messages. Each message can be hole-punched and tied with ribbon or glued on to the candy treat of your choice. While the messages are cute and awfully pun-intended, the thought and love behind preparing each one is evident in your finished product.

    Supplies needed:

    • labels

    • hole-punch

    • string or ribbon

    • tulle (optional)

    • tape (optional)

    • corny candy messages such as:

     

    You've been a Lifesaver!

    Thanks for all the fun and Snickers!

    Thank you for being Marvelous & Magnificent!

    Here's to someone who does the work of three!

    I'm bursting with happiness for our friendship!

    You're outta this world!

    Thanks for teaching me some new TWIX!

    This year would've been unbearable without you!

    I wouldn't trade you for 100 Grand!

    I love you to pieces!

     

    You are the joy in my work day!

    You have oFISHally made this a year to remember!

    When it comes to teaching, there's no one BUTTER!

     

     

    Thank you for the Extra support this year

    Thanks for being Sweet even on my Sour days!

    You hit it out of the park this year!

    As you wrap up your school year, remember to show those who have made a difference in your year some appreciation. The littlest gift can make a world of difference.

    Thank you readers for taking the time to learn and reflect with me. I am so grateful for this opportunity to share what I love with the world. I am thrilled that I will be back with Scholastic next year as a Top Teaching blogger. I look forward to connecting with you then! Until that time, be sure to follow me, @krisciacabral, on Twitter and Pinterest. It’s been a JOY sharing experiences with you.

    Have a fabulous summer! I will see you in the fall.

    Smiles,

    Kriscia
