On the first day of school I like for my students to have a little treat or surprise waiting for them on their desk. I usually fill these with 2 pencils, a bookmark, and some Smarties candy. One word of advice, if you have the Gypsy USE IT! I don't know why I didn't use mine! ;) Weld the letters together and add the word welcome prior to cutting it out. It becomes a little painstaking trying to glue each and every letter down onto the apple LOL! Another thought-you could also put "Welcome to Ms./Mr. _____ Class!" on the apple.
