When I heard my daughter would have a sub for the first six weeks of school, I was a bit skeptical. In the end, we could not have asked for a better teacher to kick off the year! The kids absolutely adored him. They really loved the rock star theme he incorporated into the class. It made everything much more fun and exciting.
Last Friday, he handed the class back over to the permanent teacher. So on Thursday, we followed his rock star theme and thanked him with treats, a rock star goody bag and of course handmade and heartfelt cards from the kids.
Inside the bag
rock candy suckers, Pop Rocks, sunglasses, an inflatable guitar, an echo mike and chocolate (my daughter told me he likes chocolate and blue, hence all the blue)
My first thought was to make a rock candy “bouquet,” then it occurred to me to keep them in their package and just fold card stock over the existing label. I have limited graphic skills, so I used Word to create the label with some clipart.
I let my daughter go crazy with some star stickers to embellish the microphone a bit. We also wrote his name on it with a metallic paint pen.
I found these rock star cupcake toppers and matching liners at Michael’s about three hours before the “party”. Nothing like last minute. Don’t ya just love it when you’re looking for something and you actually find it - especially when you are running against the clock?! I literally pulled the last batch of cupcakes out of the oven 15 minutes before I was supposed to be there. Hmm, maybe I should work on my time management skills.
I hope he knows how much the kids and parents appreciated his rock star teaching! Any class would be lucky to have him as a teacher and I’m glad we were one of them. Thanks to all the Rock Star teachers out there!
Celebrate the Rock Stars in your life!
