First Week of School Treat

Today was my first day back to school!  This week is our preplanning and students will arrive next Monday.  The summer FLEW by, but I am ready for a routine and a brand new year!  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE setting up the classroom!  It is overwhelming, but so many possibilities are buzzing in my head.

I found this adorable idea on the blog First Grade and Fancy Free.  I cannot take credit for the original idea, I just modified it for third grade.

I am going to staple the "Third Grade is a Piece of Cake" to a Ho-Ho and leave them out on Friday (last day of the first week) so that when students return from specials they can eat them (this is only a few minutes before the end of the school day).

I thought they were so cute! If you would like a different grade level other than third, please post and let me know!

The adorable borders are the ones I mentioned before by Karen Cox at PreKinders.  If you would like a copy of the blank templates, check them out at her Teachers Pay Teachers page for FREE!



  1. Glad you used our (borrowed) idea! Your printables turned out DARLING!

  2. I have to give credit where credit is due- yours were perfect! I did have to make a change. I have several allergies in my class so I changed it to "Third Graders are Smart Cookies." I printed them on labels and stuck them on the cookie packages. Thank you so much for sharing your idea!

  3. I'd love some that say fourth grade! :)
