I made this for my K teacher. All the kids cut out their hands, and wrote a special "coupon" to redeem when she see's them in the halls next year. The tree trunk I cut on my cricut and used Design Studio to put "Thanks" in the middle.

See my blog for instructions! http://mendyscreations.blogspot.com/

Here is the poem I made up to go with it:

"The Teaching Tree"

When you look at these hands what do you see?

Are you looking at bright leaves of a tree?

But take a closer look this very minute-

And notice the treasures that are found within it.

These hands can be so many things,

Maybe children who now have bigger wings?

Loving hands with an open heart,

Ready now for first grade, and off to a great start.

Whatever you make it, you can't go wrong.

Just take a little time to look and see

Where these hands have grown from,

And you'll surely agree-

Your students, the growth, and reaching their goals,

Created this for you with heart and soul.

Keep them or use them as the time shall past,

But remember you were our tree trunk that grew us so fast!

And surely you will still get to see them grow like this tree,

As you have held these hands for the past year, you see.

We chose this special present because we wanted you to know,

That we are grateful for your hard work in helping us to grow.

For your constant understanding and for always being there,

To tell us we can do it and to show us that you care!

Use these hands as they each contain a special gift,

especially if your day just needs a little lift,

Even though we are growing into first grade,

Don't ever forget the wonderful progress we all made!

Love this! Would you mind if I used this poem for a project for my daughter's pre-school teacher?
