I folded the side ends of the file folder towards the middle crease like you do when you make a lapbook.
I holepunched and added ribbon (recycled :)).
I let students pick their sticky note (I have very trustworthy kids!).
I randomly took a picture of this sticky note and didn't realize how cute the message was until now. "I hope you buzz back soon." And I hope Mrs. Price does "buzz" back soon! Even though she is an older woman, she has double my energy!
