Several weeks later I get a large envelope in my mailbox. Surprised I opened it to find all of this:
Photos of each of the classes enjoying reading time with Miss Saucy Chick. They all attend Grant Park Elementary School and are Pre K, Kindergarten and 1st Grade. Super cute aren't they!
Each student signed the card and I am in love with all of this effort that was taken to thank me. Miss Siebert even made this card and I was overwhelmed with her talents. The photo above shows the back of the Saucy Chick exactly as she was made with the fabrics. I thought how super cute and special is this. Then I turned the folder over and...
Here is the front of the chick exactly as she was sewn. I cannot believe how clever Miss Siebert made this from construction paper and some tape she even marked with chicken feet scratches all over. Very well done!
Please visit Diane and her "Lace Loving Librarian" blog which is linked with her name above. Her tatting talents are amazing.
Thank you Diane and all the students and Miss Siebert at Grant Park Elementary for such a wonderful and heartwarming thank you card. I shall cherish it forever. Those who know me know how much this card means to me. I used to be an elementary school teacher's aide when my daughter was little and I adore children and their enormous curiousity for learning.
To this day I love doing things for our local elementary school and I have adopted a class each year in a very depressed area of California that I donate supplies to. It is my tiny way of helping little ones have a chance at life with tools they can utilize throughout life and the challenges life brings.
November is upon us and it is always a month of Thanksgiving and gratitude. I have so much to be grateful for and I am very thankful.
Please share something you are grateful for.
I'm so glad you like the card! The kids had great fun signing it. Of course some of them became the leaders in their classes and made sure that everyone signed their names correctly.ReplyDelete
Ms. Saucy Chick sits proudly next to The Library Dragon (book by Carmen Agra Deedy), a topsy turvy doll in the reading area. I was going to put her near the chicken books, but the students had the final say!
What a wonderful thing you did for the children. And what a wonderful response you have received from them. A treasure for sure. The card was so cute also very creative.ReplyDelete
