I've made this before for her Kindergarten teacher (who moved up & was her 1st grade teacher too) & pretty much plan on making one for each teacher every year. You can see the 1st one I made here.
The outside card reads:
"A Teacher... Takes a HAND, Opens a MIND, Touches a HEART, Shapes the FUTURE".
PENCILS - You have "SHARPENED" my mind,
PENS - You have "WRITTEN" on my heart,
ERASER - Thank you for teaching us lessons that cannot be "ERASED".,
SCISSORS - "You are a "CUT" above the rest,
CALCULATOR- However you "CALCULATE" it, your qualities add up to perfection!,
HIGHLIGHTER - You have been the "HIGHLIGHT" of my year,
RULER - Thank you for keeping me on the "STRAIGHT & NARROW".
PUSH PINS - Thanks for helping me "STICK" with it this year,
TAPE - You are so patient, even when things get "STICKY",
GUM - If I had a choice - I'd "CHEWS" you for a teacher!,
GLUE - You are the "GLUE" that hold our class together,
CHALK - "CHALK" one up for an awesome teacher!,
STAPLER - Thank you for teaching me the "STAPLES" of life,
