I found this cute poem online last year and I used it to make tags to attach to apples. I put the apples and my class handbook on each student's desk at back to school night. Last year I used real apples, but this year I used mini decorative apples from Michaels.
The poem says: An apple for the teacher...
it's really nothing new.
Unless you remember,
parents are teachers too!
The apples help remind parents that we are working together to help their child succeed in school.
